Is there a bug in the time settings of Cody Coursework?

1 view (last 30 days)
I have a course set up in Cody Coursework in time zone CET (Central European time), but spanning an interval of both winter and summer time (CEST, Central European Summer Time). When I create an assignment, I set a latest date and time for the hand-in. Let's say I write 22.00. Then Cody interprets this as CET, and adds another hour to get CEST. So once I save, I get the hand-in time of 23.00. To get 22.00, I should enter 21.00. A bit confusing, is this a bug?
Even worse, if I then edit the assignment for some other reason, Cody reads it's own entry of 22.00, interprets this as CET, and adds another hour to get CEST. So once I save, the hand-in is by 23.00. Every time I edit an assignment the hand-in time is automatically moved an hour. This is, I would say, definitely a bug.

Sounds like a bug. I sent a note to some of the cody staff.

Anna, this doesn't sound like Cody Coursework is behaving as expected. Please contact MathWorks support, and include the URL to the course that you are attempting to modify dates and times for, and your MathWorks Account username.
