Third Party Calendars and Daylight Savings Time

In some locations, March marks the start of Daylight Savings Time. For many, this is the time that the clock "springs forward" one hour. If you manage meetings in Kavi Workspace, you will want to be aware of some known issues.

- Daylight savings time starts on different days -- March 14th in some locations, March 28th in others, and some places do not observe it:

- The United States passed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This included Daylight Savings Time rule changes that went into effect in 2007. It had been more than 20 years since the last time the rules were changed:

- Some third party calendar tools require users to manually download a patch to gracefully handle changes to Daylight Savings Time. There is a known issue with Microsoft Outlook and a patch is available:

- Furthermore, you may need to download patches for other Microsoft products, including your operating system:
