Local vs Exchange time

Hi,

does anybody know how TS handels the calculation of local time, if local time is in the time zone that applies daylight saving time? Does it ignore it or does it calculate with it?
In the latter case I would expect "time gaps" once a year.

Thanks in advance!

TS uses "local" time in reference to your computer. So if you have your computer's settings to Central Time, then TS will track to that time. Your computer automatically updates the time for DST, so it shouldn't be an issue.
