Description of problem: Observations correctly displayed as daylight time on observation page are shown in standard time on “list” format. We had a scavenger hunt that started at noon and I noticed this observation was not going into the project even though it meets the parameters.

@janetwright I made a bug report here:

I took a look at the project. The issue with the project is that whoever created it didn’t add a time zone offset to the date/time range fields. They need to add -05:00 to each one so that it looks like this:

I asked the admin of the project to add the -05:00 and it did not solve the problem.

So weird - now I am participating in a bioblitz for the local parks department that started at 12pm central time today. I have 18 observations made after I started at 12:48pm, and through 1:52pm that are not being shown in the project: Here is one of the 18 observations as an example: The observations made after 2:00pm are included in the project.
