Topic: DST for NimBus

Hi GT

I can see only one DST setting in NimBus. May you add other DST in NimBus?

Hi, hhamedk!

Currently we have one option of DST setting (Europe: last Sunday in March - last Sunday in October).
Please specify what option of DST you are interested in?

Re: DST for NimBus

hhamedk, as far as I understand, Iranian DST works the following way.

Once in four years your local time is shifted one hour forward on March 21st and it is turned backward 1 hour on September 21st.
Next three years the local time is shifted on March 22nd and it is turned backward 1 hour on September 22nd.

To analyse your request it is essential to understand the way it works, so please correct me if I'm wrong. For example:

21 Mar 2012 - DST started, 21 Sep 2012 - DST ended
22 Mar 2013 - DST started, 22 Sep 2013 - DST ended
22 Mar 2014 - DST started, 22 Sep 2014 - DST ended
22 Mar 2015 - DST started, 22 Sep 2015 - DST ended
21 Mar 2016 - DST started, 21 Sep 2016 - DST ended
22 Mar 2017 - DST started, 22 Sep 2017 - DST ended
22 Mar 2018 - DST started, 22 Sep 2018 - DST ended
22 Mar 2019 - DST started, 22 Sep 2019 - DST ended
21 Mar 2020 - DST started, 21 Sep 2020 - DST ended

So it doesn't depend on the day of week or anything else, am I right? DST in Iran has a fixed date, yet it changes once every four years, is that correct?

Re: DST for NimBus

hhamedk, thanks for the confirmation.

Anyhow, for now you can use the app and switch the timezone manually on March 21st, as the DST setting is a minor feature that only makes work with NimBus a bit easier.
We will consider this option, thank you for the request.
