A board admin can set the default Daylight Saving Time via the ACP.

Administration Control Panel -> Advanced Admin Panel -> General -> Board settings -> Enable Summer Time/DST: o Yes o No

Whenever a new user registers this setting is applied to that users board preferences. However, as far as I can tell, when Daylight Saving Time changes twice a year each individual user must go through the User Control Panel and change the setting manually.

User Control Panel -> Board preferences -> Edit global settings -> Summer Time/DST is in effect: o Yes o No

Can/will the programmers provide the ability to follow the default board setting as set by the admin?

I would suggest adding this to the users preferences:

User Control Panel -> Board preferences -> Edit global settings -> Summer Time/DST is in effect: o Yes o No o Board default

In this day and age it is almost unbelievable that the Daylight Saving Time adjustment must be done manually.
