Daylight Savings Time fix for Mac, PC, handhelds
March 2007

Daylight Savings Time (DST) starts earlier this year (Sunday March 11). As a result, meetings in calendar programs such as Microsoft Outlook and Entourage are off by one hour during this period.

Important to note is that the tool will only fix calendar items the specific user has created, so items proposed by other people will be corrected once they run the tool on their own calendars.

Customers with laptops or non-CBIS supported can visit the Microsoft DST Help & Support Center for assistance in identifying required updates.

Customers are encouraged to call the Service Desk at 2-3456 with any questions or problems, or to schedule a technician visit.
