The timer commands AFTER, AT, and EVERY support the FTC and BTC parameters to control whether the system skips or repeats actions after it detects a time change.
The FTC and BTC parameters apply when the timer specifies the timezone with TZ=LOCAL. They do not apply when TZ=UTC or TZ=GMT.
  • Forward Time Change:
    FTC=S
    skips the action.
    FTC=T
    trips (repeats) the action.
  • Backward Time Change:
    BTC=S
    skips the action.
    BTC=T
    trips (repeats) the action.
