    Preferences->Disable on date: Moves 1 day forward if time is set to 16:00 onward.

    Asked by brandiebarbee on October 12, 2016 at 11:29 AM

    Good morning!

    I am trying to adjust the date for the disable on date feature. I change the date, click save, and then go out of the form. When I go back in, the date has reverted back to the original date.

    I'm unable to replicate the issue that it reverts to the original date, however, I do see that the date moves 1 day forward if the timestamp you set is 16:00 and up. 

    Here's an example:

    I setup my datetime to October 31, 2016 15:00, I saved it and open "Preferences" again, date and time stays intact:


    However, you can see on my screencast above that once you setup the time to 16:00 on ward, the date will move 1 day forward. In my case, when I set it to October 31, 2016 16:00, it becomes November 1, 2016 16:00 once I opened the "Preferences" wizard again.

    I am not sure if this is the specific issue you are referring to, but I believe it is related. I have forwarded this to our developers for further checking, we will update you on this thread as soon as this has been fixed.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Hi Charlie, 

    Thank you so much for looking into this. I will just manually close the forms for now when the deadline passes. I look forward to hearing back from you all once there is a fix. 

    Thank you!
