DATEVALUE() formula fields are incorrect in Reports and Visualforce due to daylight savings
Last updated 2 days ago ·Reference W-869341 ·Reported By 221 users
1. Reports and Visualforce components relying on a Date/Time format field may be off by an hour during Daylight Savings Time.
2. This can also present different values in records in lightning vs. classic. This is due to how and when the DATEVALUE currently truncates the time from the Date/Time field.
Formulas using the DateValue() function display as being off by one hour when displayed on Reports or Visualforce.
As an example for scenario 2 listed above,
Consider the following formula:
Workbench shows the Random_DateTimeField__c to have a value of:
Lightning will display the date at 6/17/2018
Classic will display the date at 6/18/2018
It is recommended that date/time fields that intend to have the DateValue() function used on it should not be defined between 11pm and 1am. Doing so may cause the Date to be translated into an incorrect Date.
Alternately, updating your user timezone may return desirable results.
