On Friday a co-worker indicated that they had added some comments to a Word document I created in one of our MS Teams. The following Tuesday morning, using the MS Teams Desktop Application, I went to the team to review the comments but noticed something a bit weird, the modified information hadn’t changed.

I still need to do more robust testing before I’m 100% comfortable with this solution but for now it’s fixing the all-day events that were getting screwed up by SharePoint’s adjustments.
