2018 DST Quick Guide

The starting and ending dates for Daylight Saving Time must be set each year. After the start of 2018, you can set the Daylight Saving Time change dates for 2018 so the clock will automatically adjust on the correct dates. Both the starting and ending dates must be set for automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustments to be operational.

General Information
