    It would appear that the time zone for any given JotForm is set in stone at the time of the form's creation—which would be fine, except for a second problem: JotForm doesn't handle daylight savings time (it merely applies a static GMT offset).

    I'm in US Eastern Time (America/New_York), and now that we're observing Daylight Savings Time, JotForm submissions are timestamped an hour in the past.

    I tried changing my time zone to UTC or GMT*, but lo and behold, subsequent submissions in the JotForm I created while on US Eastern Time still saved in US Eastern Time (except, as mentioned before, wrong). Sigh.


    * FWIW, GMT/UTC as an option by itself doesn't exist, so I used Reykjavik, as I happen to know Iceland sets their time to GMT and doesn't ever observe Daylight Savings Time.
