How do I schedule adorers around Daylight Savings Time?

Daylight Savings Time (DST) is a difficult thing to wrap one's mind around. It's different for each country (and even regions within the same country). You can learn more about DST at the following links:

Here is an explanation of Daylight Savings Time in the USA and recommended workarounds.

Spring

In the spring, clocks spring forward from 1:59:59 AM straight to 3:00:00 AM. Thus, the 2:00 AM hour "doesn't exist" (or so they say). 🕑 🤔

The 2:00 AM hour will still appear on your adoration schedule, but nobody can sign up for it.

We recommend you notify the 2:00 AM adorers to NOT show up for adoration that day.

Or, don't notify them, and you may have more adorers at the 3:00 AM hour. 🙏 🙏

To message the Sunday 2:00 AM adorers, visit Admin » Commitments and set the Day filter to Sunday and the Time filter to 2:00 AM. Then, click the Message Adorers button at the top of the page.

You should also notify all Sunday adorers to set their clocks forward an hour because they'll need to go to adoration an hour earlier that day.

To message all Sunday adorers, visit Admin » Commitments and set the Day filter to Sunday. Then, click the Message Adorers button at the top of the page.

Fall

In the fall, clocks fall back from 1:59:59 AM to 1:00:00 AM. Thus, there are two 1:00 AM hours! 🕐 🕐

The additional 1:00 AM hour will not appear on your adoration schedule, and your adorers will not be able to sign up for it.

If you plan to have adoration during that second 1:00 AM hour, we recommend that you sign up at least two people for the 1:00 AM hour and then ask one of them to take the second 1:00 AM hour.

You should also notify all Sunday adorers to set their clocks back an hour because they'll need to go to adoration an hour later that day.

To message the Sunday adorers, visit Admin » Commitments and set the Day filter to Sunday. Then, click the Message Adorers button at the top of the page.
