As was announced recently by the Government, daylight savings will be three weeks longer than it has been previously. Specifically clocks will go forward one hour a week earlier than usual on the last Sunday in September, and back one hour on the first Sunday in April instead of the third Sunday in March.

To account for these changes we need to update a number of our products and work with various people and product teams to ascertain how best to address this change.

We have established www.microsoft.co.nz/timezone as the central resource for information on this issue and we'd encourage you to familiarise yourself with this information, and additionally to share this out with others in New Zealand.

This web page will be updated periodically as we confirm details such as timelines and deployment methods, so please check back on a regular basis.
