    I have an Automator task set to an "Open File" alert at time of the event, set daily at 12:15 AM. This appears to be firing at 7:15AM, not sure what's going on? Anyone have any ideas?

    If the alert is set properly being five hours off sounds like a possible time zone issue.

    That was my thought as well, but I don't see any time zone settings within the calendar item.

    I turned on timezone support, I guess we'll see if that fixes the problem tomorrow.

    Is the event on a separate calendar and where is the calendar hosted?

    Yes it is on an "Automator" calendar that was created when I created the Automator task. It's hosted on the Mac

    Well two days in, it fired off at 4:15 and 8:15, so I have no idea what's going on
