TimeTrak® And Daylight Saving Time
Daylight Saving Time has been changed by the government to start earlier, and
end later starting this year; 2007. As most of you are aware, time and
attendance involves in most cases, hardware and software.
Daylight Saving Calculations - "Pay Rule > Miscellaneous"
We will start by discussing TimeTrak® software. TimeTrak® has two places
where Daylight Saving can be turned On or Off. The first place is on the "Pay
Rule Setup > Miscellaneous" tab. The Pay Rule "Use Daylight Saving" feature
controls the calculations that handle subtracting the "extra" hour of time indicated
between punch transactions when Daylight Saving Time starts in the Spring; or
the addition of the "missing" hour of time indicated between punch transactions
when Daylight Saving Time ends in the Fall. The Pay Rule "Use Daylight
Saving" feature ensures that the number of hours is corrected on the two days of
the year when daylight saving changes occur. It has no effect on punch times or
clock times.
Clock Time Adjustment - "Site Clock - Clock > Basic Programming"
The second place that TimeTrak® has a "Use Daylight Saving" feature in
"Site/Clock Clock Setup > Basic Programming". This "Basic Programming" "Use
Daylight Saving" feature is downloaded to the clocks which are able to alter their
own time when Daylight Saving Time changes twice per year. Some clock
models are hard coded with the formerly used Daylight Saving dates and will
alter the clock's time on incorrect dates according to the former DST rules.
These clocks must have the "Basic Programming" "Use Daylight Saving" feature
turned off. Because the feature is turned off for these clocks, they must receive a
manual download of the correct Time and Date soon after each Daylight Saving
change (twice per year).
Whenever the "Basic Programming" "Use Daylight Saving" feature is altered, the
changes must be saved, and a configuration download sent to each affected
clock.
