I'm sure everyone here is aware that the Spring Bank Holiday has been changed this year from the last Monday in May to the first Monday in June, but I've been assured in the last week by two people that 28th May is a holiday, one of them having been refused an appointment by their Job Centre for that reason!

Also Microsoft Outlook and Windows Live calendars show the 28th as a Bank Holiday, with nothing shown for 4th & 5th June, even though they've been alerted to the error in, among other places, their Windows Live forum where, on 17th May they were still saying

Quote:
We understand that the UK Spring Bank Holiday date seen on your Windows Live Calendar doesn't match with that of the actual.

This issue is already being looked at by the Windows Live team. We will keep you posted for any updates on this. Thank you for the patience.

I wonder how many people will use the misinformation in the calendars as an excuse not to turn up for work that day!

Yes, that's the site I told the people who thought it was a holiday to look at, and that Microsoft have been given the link to.

Strange, or is it. I use Enturage calendar (Microsoft) and it is showing the Monday and Tueasday as bank holidays. (June 4th and 5th) Nothing else.

Or am I reading this post all wrong.

Yes, it's strange. Presumably the Entourage team and the Live Team create their calendars independently.
