The Bias element represents the offset from the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) offset identified by the Bias (UTC) element for standard time and daylight saving time. This value is in minutes.

Description

StandardTime

Represents an offset from the time relative to UTC represented by the Bias (UTC) element. This element also contains information about the transition to standard time from daylight saving time in regions where daylight saving time is observed.

The following are the XPath expressions to the StandardTime element:

  • /GetUserAvailabilityResponse/FreeBusyResponseArray/FreeBusyResponse/FreeBusyView/WorkingHours/TimeZone/StandardTime

  • /GetUserAvailabilityRequest/TimeZone/StandardTime

DaylightTime

Represents an offset from the time relative to UTC represented by the Bias (UTC) element in regions where daylight saving time is observed. This element also contains information about when the transition to daylight saving time from standard time occurs.

The following are the XPath expressions to the DaylightTime element:

  • /GetUserAvailabilityResponse/FreeBusyResponseArray/FreeBusyResponse/FreeBusyView/WorkingHours/TimeZone/DaylightTime

  • /GetUserAvailabilityRequest/TimeZone/DaylightTime

A text value is required. The text value represents an integer.

The offset used to determine the local time can only be provided by one of the Bias elements. The sum of the values of the Bias element provided by the DaylightTime element or the StandardTime element plus the Bias (UTC) element identifies the local time.

The following example shows part of an XML request that identifies a user who observes daylight saving time by adjusting the offset from UTC by -60 minutes. This effectively makes the bias 420 minutes from UTC.
