A Friendly Reminder

This Saturday night, set your clocks forward one hour before you go to bed. Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. on March 13, 2022.

Note for Physical Time Clock Users

Timeforce is set up with special features to synchronize the time clock with your computer by downloading the date & time from your computer on a daily basis.

Make sure your computer’s default time moves forward by one hour on this date. If your computer fails to adjust with the start of Daylight Savings Time, your time clock will synchronize with your computer and be one hour behind.

NOTE: If for any reason your time clock or computer does not update automatically as it should, do not make any adjustments to employees’ time cards.
