Issue:

 

 

When using a Time Period which includes daylight saving time change date will cause the start time of the report to be incorrect.  For example when using a custom Time Period created for the start and the end of the of November 2019 the reports do not start at 00:00 but 1:00.  Note these dates cover the time change for Daylight Saving Time (DST) which occurred in US at 02:00 on November 3rd, 2019.  See below for the configuration of the Time Period used with the Start and End Times:      
   
    Start Time   
    Day of the month: 1   
    Month: 1 month ago   
    Hour: 12 AM

    End Time   
    Day of the month: 31   
    Month: 1 month ago   
    Hour: 11 PM
