      Description

      When an instructor has their time zone set differently from server time, and they edit quiz settings, Samigo converts the available, due, and late submission date/time to match the user time zone. However, on save, it sets that time as if it were in the server time zone, resulting in an incorrect date settings.

      Here's a video demonstrating an instructor with user time zone set to CST on the nightly server which is in EST attempting to save changes to a quiz due date and getting a new due date, an hour earlier, every time they save: https://www.screencast.com/t/s8p9vBlJc

      This is a serious problem for study abroad instructors (or any distance instructor) attempting to set dates for quizzes.
