What happens to scheduled triggers during Daylight Savings Time?

Daylight Savings time will affect the start time of triggers. It is recommended to adjust triggers prior to daylight savings time taking affect if this may interfere with your process.

For example, if a process is set to begin at 5:30AM CST, the start time will change to 4:30AM CST when daylight savings takes place.

Sorry about that. What was the most unhelpful part?
