I have searched the templates and everything I can think to figure out why this is happening, but when users try to select today's date for one of our custom date fields in Problem, it populates with yesterday's date. If we choose tomorrow, it populates today - it's always a day behind. I checked the time zones, too and they match. The template doesn't have any defaults for this field, nor are there any UI rules. Can someone help me figure out where to look next?
central standard time = GMT -6 (chicago time) is that correct for you? Have you checked that the client has also this time in the interface? try to look up the time in the Db and check if there he mentions the correct time. Then you will knoy if the problem comes from the client or the DB..
That very well could be the case. We are on SP11. Everything else, all the servers involved, all the client workstations are all on the same time zone and recognize DST. Is there a white paper or anything on this?
Actually, I don't think the database could be the culprit because this happens before I even save it. As soon as I click on a date in the calendar window, the date field populates with one day prior. I would think it has to be something within the application. Any thoughts?
It is jus a guess, but check date format in client side. What date display format you have chosen for this custom field and what date display format is set on client side? Do they mach? Is incorrect date is stored to database too or just appears in client interface? If you select today's date - it shows yesterday, but what value it stores in database if you save it? There will be difference in hours between client and database. Please give an example with date display formats and values in client and database.
Hi Colleen - Welcome Back !! I think we last spoke in 2003.
The problem you described sounds similar to what we have in our environment and for us it is a known problem. When we do Advanced Find, and Select "registration created ON", the day it lists is always 1 day behind, but the results are as expected.
