What do I need to do to update my Attendance Rx based system for the Daylight Saving Time (DST) change?

Products powered by the Attendance Rx software (including Secure PunchIn, ProxTime and Biometric 1000) receive their time and date information from the Windows operating system of the PC or server on which the Attendance Rx software is installed. Their time will be updated automatically when Windows is updated.

In order for your Acroprint software to correctly update for Daylight Saving Time, your computer’s Windows operating system must be properly configured for DST.

For more information about preparing your computer’s Windows operating system for Daylight Saving Time, Acroprint recommends following Microsoft’s guidelines.

  1. Click here to go to the Microsoft web site (www.microsoft.com)
  2. In the search field type daylight saving time — note there is no “s” at the end of saving.
  3. Click on the magnifying glass icon at the right of the search field.

This search will provide you with advice regarding properly preparing your computers for daylight saving time.
