Daylight Saving Time and Your Time Clock

Since Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends November 7, you may be anxious as to how seasonal time changes affect your time and attendance software. The good news is that for most time clock software users, there's no impact at all.

Virtual TimeClock gets the time stamp for all punch times from the computer running your time clock software. With the Network Edition, the time clock server computer supplies the time stamp. So as long as the computer running your time clock software handles the time change automatically, Virtual TimeClock will always record the correct time for you. If you have worker shifts that cross the time change, then you'll need to manually add or subtract an hour for that shift, depending on the time of year.

Enjoy your extra hour of slumber!
