CRM timezone RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    http://www.develop1.net/public/post/Dynamics-CRM-DateTimes-the-last-word.aspx

    https://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/f186e3b9-0202-42e6-b893-a55f896b45f3/crm-2011-user-settings-date-time-and-time-zones?forum=crmdevelopment&prof=required

    In the blog mentioned "The important thing to understand is that daylight saving adjustments are based upon the date being entered, and not by the current date time at time of entry."

    How does day light savings are calculated when the user is on New York with day light savings? For example, i am located @New York office and my CRM timezone settings are GMT-05:00. Day light savings are applicable +1. So how does CRM knows this current 'CRM User setting timezone' is applicable for daylight savings and updates the record creation time/birthday time in CRM? 

    Regards,

    Kumar.

  • It does not.

    This is a very well known problem and has many users asking for a non-utc date format.

  • There is a background table that holds all of the definitions for the different time zones that says what is the difference between Central time US with Daylight savings and Central time without.
