Share alert with a friend error

Getting error that says “Alerts to friends can only be set up on single day alerts.” even though Single Day is selected. Happening to a colleague as well.

We hope to have a fix for this later this afternoon (US Central time).

Seems to be an error in the date used in the friend’s email as well.

Alert setup for april 28 (entered via Android app):
Friend’s email ‘april 29’:

Hello from FlightAware.

A FlightAware flight alert was setup for you by /…/ Erkamp. You will be notified by email of the status of this flight:
Flight: KLM 605
Date: Wednesday, April 29, 2015

You don’t need to do anything to receive these alerts, but you should save this email for future use. If you’d like to edit or disable the flight alert, click here.


Takeoff and landing is on april 28 (CET, UTC and PDT)

Okay, thanks for reporting this. It appears that the alert is created for the correct day, but the email just includes the wrong one sometimes (depending on the timezones involved). We’re working on a fix for this now.
