We've just gone live with OpenRoom, got a lot of student response - and
have run into a problem I think is due to incorrect handling of the
change to daylight saving time (this is in the UK). The problem is the
display is out of sync with the data in the database, and as a result
the system is letting students make duplicate bookings causing further
problems. We've turned it off for now - but I wonder if anyone else has
run into this problem and has a quick fix?
