Answer:

Ensuring that each Clio User has the correct Time Zone set in their account is important, as Calendar Events will automatically adjust their Start and End times if it detects a difference in Time Zone between the User who set up the event, and the User who's viewing it.

For example: Let's say you have multiple offices -- one in Los Angeles, and one in New York

Since 2007, in areas of Canada and the United States of America in which it is used, Daylight Saving Time begins on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November.

In Mexico, Congress has consistently been refusing to adopt this schedule on a nationwide basis. Therefore, only certain border cities in Mexican states that observe DST follow the same pattern as Canada and the United States of America. The rest of Mexico remains out of phase beginning DST on the first Sunday of April and ending on the last Sunday of October, the same schedule followed by Canada and the United States of America prior to 2007.

In the EU, European Summer Time begins on the last Sunday of March and ends on the last Sunday in October.
