Time Zone & Daylight Saving Settings
IMPORTANT: The company setting for time zones must be configured prior to Daylight Saving time change, otherwise time records must be manually corrected by the administrator.
ExakTime Connect uses your configured Time Zone to determine if your area follows Daylight Saving Time changes or not. This will affect any hardware or software you use to track your employee's time (JobClock/EX, JobClock Hornets & ExakTime Mobile).
If you are wanting to adjust the time on your JobClock with a FastTrakker Pro in preparation for the spring, you can refer to the following article: Adjusting for DST on a JobClock using the FastTrakker Pro
You can set this value through the Company Settings within the website by following the steps below:
- Go to Manage at the top and select Company Settings.
- Click on the Other tab
- Scroll down until you see the Time Zone section
- In the drop-down select the appropriate Time Zone for the area you are in. If your employees work across multiple time zones, select the time zone that your main office is located in.
- Click Save.
When selecting the time zone, as long as the time zone respects Daylight Savings time changes then all devices associated to your ExakTime Connect account will adjust their time by going forward or backward an hour as needed.
