How do assignment due dates and different timezones work on MySats?

(Last edited: Monday, 9 June 2014, 10:13 PM)

Almost every assessment task on MySats has a deadline known as due date or a closing date, depending on the type of activity (assignment, forum, test, etc.).

Deadlines are always shown on MySats in South African Standard Time, which is UTC+2. South Africa does not use daylight savings, so there is no change with seasons.

If you live in another time zone or a country that uses daylight saving, you can edit your profile such that MySats displays the deadlines in your local time. This will not, however, change the deadline at all; it will simply display the deadline in your local time.


If you are unsure of what your UTC timezone is, you can look here:
