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).

  Additional Information

If you are wanting to adjust the time on your JobClock with a FastTrakker Pro in preparation for the spring, you can refer to 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.

  • 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.
