For Daylight Savings time that happens in a few days on March 12 when time is moved 1 hour ahead what do I change my session times to?

Currently my Session Start Time is 22:00:10 and my Session End Time is 22:00:00.

Would I change my Session Start Time to 23:00:10 and my Session End Time to 23:00:00 for the Daylight Savings Time change or would I change it to a different time?

We assume that you are not in the US and that your time zone is your local time zone. In which case, the US will have moved forward by 1 hour, relative to your time. This means that you would have to move your times back by 1 hour to keep the same time relative to the US. For example, if your chart Start time is 22:00:00 which is 09:00:00 in the US, then when the US moves forward, 22:00:00 in your time zone is now 10:00:00 in the US. Therefore, to reference 09:00:00 in the US, you would need to set your Start Time to 21:00:00.
