6.2.4 Post DST one hour offset



We've discovered that since Daylight Savings kicked in, TRIM is now reporting the wrong times on documents registered before that. If you go back to last year's DST period, they're correct again.

It's most noticeable on emails since they show you the sent/received date when you view them, but it appears to affect other documents as well

I've checked that the time zone settings are correct and that all DST patches are installed on our TRIM server.

Our TRIM server is running 6.2.4 build 1240.

I'd appreciate any advice anyone can offer with this.

Re: 6.2.4 Post DST one hour offset

Dates/Times in TRIM are stored in a GMT string format in the database and dispalyed to the user based on a current Regional time conversion.


So during DST it might be +10 hours for example, but during standard time it might be +9 hours.


Yes, this can lead to some confusion when looking at the regional time. There is a current enhancement request open with R&D to have the regional time preserved in some way so that you can always see the 'regional' date created/registered etc.
