I have a few users who's clock hasn't adjusted following the DST change. When they click into their time and date settings - the Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes tickbox is not visible.

Anyone seen this before?

Make sure the time zone is correctly selected. You may have a time zone selected that does not observe daylight savings time.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Also the exact date for DTS may depend on where you are in your country. Check out the following link:

Dude.  If the Time Zone you select does not acknowledge daylight savings time the option will be greyed out.  Make sure you know

The DST display will show up if your time zone follows DST.  If you're 100% sure it does then your system might need an update/patch.  For example, Mountain Time in the US doesn't follow DST in all area's.  Arizona, which is in the Mountain Time Zone in the US, doesn't observe DST so the check box isn't displayed while other areas in Mountain Time observe DST.

Found the solution - there was an issue with the latest DST patch - which I'd installed a month ago - uninstalled and re-installed it.

Figured it might be a patch/update issue if you had the correct time zone selected.  Thanks for the update.
