Edit time zone and Daylight Saving Time

Is there a way to change from daylight saving time? I’m tired of my meds being 1 hour off.

Why can’t I change the time zone in the app. You currently have me in Puerto Rico - which has my schedule to take medication wrong. This is standard practice for any app.

I just need to know how to change my clock for meds schedule. I’m personally working to adjust. I have 3 dogs and 1 cat on seizure meds. I noticed they weren’t adjusting to being on normal time. So I backed them up an hour. Then it hit me part of my adjusting was due to my med schedule. I’m 100% disable. So I spend on average 19-20 hours a day reading. Thanks to opioid war pain meds are non- existent. Reading takes me out of my body. When I read I don’t keep track of time, day or even year. It has caused me problems but there is nothing medicine I.e. doctors can do for me. If I miss an appointment no big deal. The VA is a 50 mile round trip. The energy I spend getting there and home is not worth the trouble. My children are out on their own. My dogs and cats get mildly annoyed when I get nasty. They know which cat or dog to send in to clam me down. Anyway I need to take clock off daylight savings time. Who is keeping track of all the time we’ve saved? Where did it go? Just wondering. Our farmers the it. I hate it. And anyone I have contact with hates it.

1- Tap Home (bottom left).
2- Tap your profile icon (top left).
3- Tap Settings (at the bottom).
4- Tap Sign Out (top right on Android, bottom on iOS).
5- On the “Welcome Back!” screen, enter your registered email and password to sign in again.

I manually change time of meds, from 8 to 7, and note the 2 times of alarms. I auto feed my cats & 1 gets thyroid meds twice daily.

Hi @Cheryll! The time zone is determined by your device, but sometimes the app needs a refresh to sync time changes. Signing out and back in to the app should fix the issue for you.

I live and work near the border of a time zone border and my work requires me to change time zones a few times a month. Android will sense this through GPS and adjust to Local time. The Care Zone app will change to Pacific Time but refuses to change back when I return. It would almost be preferable to not have Care Zone change time zones so that medications could be taken at regular intervals rather than assuming I’d change intervals with different time zones.

I had this prob when going to Texas at Christmas from New York. I just took at my normal time by setting a regular alarm on my phone.

It would be really helpful to have an option for the time of a dose to be the same no matter what timezone I’m in, maybe tied to the phone’s clock? If I’m supposed to take a dose at dinner every might, it’s not helpful to have the reminder atmidnight just because I’ve traveled to Europe.

Hi @mljkelly—I’m sorry to hear of any confusion between your device’s settings and the app. You can easily fix this issue with a few simple steps!

The time zone is determined by your phone’s internal settings, so sometimes the app just needs a refresh to sync any recent time zone changes.

Signing out and back in to the app should fix the issue for you.
