Our intent is to answer questions on that specific situation.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Consider following examples where a country has decided mid calendar year to change the time zone rules.</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>Example 1:</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>Country X</STRONG> currently follows DST where, it starts November 1<SUP>st</SUP> of the current year and ends March 1<SUP>st</SUP> of the following year.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Win_DST_0-1581724349637.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/171327i6341257D3EFD1720/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Win_DST_0-1581724349637.png" alt="Win_DST_0-1581724349637.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Looking at this for 2019/2020, DST began on 11/1/2019 and ended on 3/1/2020. It will begin again on 11/1/2020 and end on 3/1/2021.</P> <P>Imagine that country X decided to opt out of DST in<STRONG> April of 2020</STRONG>. This means DST will no longer begin on the expected date of 11/1/2020. In this case, for the year 2020, the previously established DST end date of 3/1/2020 is still valid to ensure DST doesn’t begin again for that the calendar year of 2020.</P> <P>Microsoft releases an update at an opportune time prior to the expected 11/1/2020 change, which sets the DST start date to 1/1/2020 allowing calendars to reflect the state of DST prior the change. The same update will also set, if needed, a new set of time zone rules for the following year i.e. for 2021.</P> <P>Once the update is installed by the customer, prior to 11/1/2020, <STRONG>the</STRONG> <STRONG>new DST start date will be 1/1/2020 and the original DST end date of 3/1/2020 will remain unchanged as the DST is still enabled for 2020</STRONG> but only for that period. Once the system clock of the Windows device transitions from 2020 to 2021, the DST start date and end date will be set of 0s meaning DST will be disabled for the country X’s time zone according to the new 2021 DST time zone rule.</P> <P><STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>Example 2:</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>Country Y</STRONG> follows DST where, it starts from 1<SUP>st</SUP> March, the current year and ends 1<SUP>st</SUP> November, the current year.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Win_DST_1-1581724349639.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/171326iA487CC7D6450C0F6/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Win_DST_1-1581724349639.png" alt="Win_DST_1-1581724349639.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Looking at this for 2020/2021, DST will begin on 3/1/2020 and end on 11/1/2020.</P> <P>Imagine that country Y decided to not follow DST in <STRONG>April of 2020</STRONG> but continue with the current time. This means that it does not end DST as expected on 11/1/2020.</P> <P>Microsoft releases an update at an opportune time prior to the expected 11/1/2020 change, which sets the DST end date to 1/1/2020 allowing calendars to reflect the state of DST prior the change. The same update will also set, as needed in this case, a new set of time zone rules for the following year i.e. for 2021.</P> <P>Once the update is installed by the customer, prior to 11/1/2020, <STRONG>the</STRONG> <STRONG>original DST start date of 3/1/2020 will be unchanged as the DST is still enabled for 2020</STRONG> <STRONG>and the new DST end date will be set to 01/01/2020. </STRONG>For the year of 2021, the new time zone rule will set both the DST start date and end date to 0s with a new offset for country Y’s time zone. Once the system clock of the Windows device transitions from 2020 to 2021, the new time zone rule for country Y will kick-in.</P> Sat, 15 Feb 2020 00:15:19 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/daylight-saving-time-time-zone/how-does-microsoft-handle-dst-servicing-when-a-country-decides/ba-p/1175108 Nakul_Bhagat 2020-02-15T00:15:19Z Outlook incorrectly uses 2019 time zone rule for Brazil https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/daylight-saving-time-time-zone/outlook-incorrectly-uses-2019-time-zone-rule-for-brazil/ba-p/1066016 <P>Microsoft is aware of the issue that customers are facing for Brazil time zone in the Outlook Desktop App.&nbsp;Outlook incorrectly uses the current years’ (2019) time zone rule when expanding the recurrence pattern for calendar items. The application calculates the time for the individual instances meetings should occur regardless of what year the instances themselves actually occur. For example, although it is the year 2019, Outlook will use the 2019 time zone rule to expand a recurring appointment that occurs in the future such as in January, 2020.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Since the 2020 rule for Brazil is different than the 2019 rule (specifically the UTC offset is different in January 2019 vs January 2020), Outlook has a bug where calendar items displayed are off by an hour when looking at the January 2020 calendar. On January 1<SUP>st</SUP>, 2020, these calendar items will display correctly since Outlook code will use the correct 2020 rule for calculating the time.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For more details please follow Outlook article :&nbsp;<A href="#" target="_self">KB4484172</A>&nbsp;</P> Fri, 13 Dec 2019 22:27:24 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/daylight-saving-time-time-zone/outlook-incorrectly-uses-2019-time-zone-rule-for-brazil/ba-p/1066016 Nakul_Bhagat 2019-12-13T22:27:24Z Time zone updates for Norfolk Islands, Australia and Fiji Island are available https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/daylight-saving-time-time-zone/time-zone-updates-for-norfolk-islands-australia-and-fiji-island/ba-p/825772 <P>The September 2019 update provides below Daylight Savings Time (DST) changes.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>DST in Norfolk Island, Australia will start at 2:00 am on the first Sunday in October current year, that is October 6th, 2019 and end at 3:00 am on the first Sunday in the April, that is April 5th, 2020.

In over 20 years of committed diversity and inclusion efforts, we’ve learned that diversity is not a finite goal; it is a journey that requires constant self-assessment and recommitment. <BR /> <BR /> As we continuously strive to make Windows usable by anyone, anywhere in this world, we are planning to release a Windows Update on June 14 <SUP> th </SUP> 2016 which will introduce 16 new time zones. Once the update is installed, we recommend users in these regions start using these new time zones on their Windows devices. Doing so will not only properly account for historical time data but also ensure DST transitions take effect appropriately if applicable. <BR /> <H2> 1. Criteria for Creating New Time Zones in Windows </H2> <BR /> A new Windows time zone entry will be created when a country/region (including dependencies), or a first-order administrative division of a country/region (state, province, department, etc.), has a separate and distinct history of UTC offsets and DST rules from existing time zone entries. Additionally, a smaller geographic area (county, city, etc.) qualifies for a new Windows time zone entry when its current UTC offset and DST rule combination is not provided by another Windows time zone entry. <BR /> <H2> 2. New Time Zones </H2> <BR /> The following time zones have been added, either because they are currently unrepresented, or because they have a unique history of changes in recent years. <BR /> <H3> 2.1.

In order to do so effectively, we must follow our established update release cycle.
