Daylight Savings Time Tournament Time Changes

Post by DoubleEagle »

I searched the threads but can't find an answer.

When the time changes twice a year, I have been manually re-setting all of the upcoming tournaments to reflect the time change. For example, all of my tournaments are now showing their start times one hour earlier than before DST ended. There must be a way to do this automatically.

It's really a PITA because I have about 30 tournaments I need to fix the start times. I must be missing something.

You don't need to make any changes, the system will automatically adjust tournament times when there is a DST to ST or ST to DST transition. Assuming your server's clock is set correctly.

This conversation continued via email but I wanted to re-post what I mentioned there as it may help others. If your players are primarily American, I suggest that you don't set your server's clock to the GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) time zone. GMT does not support daylight saving time and wouldn't line up with the American schedule of DST/ST transitions even if it did.
