I'm using sharePoint designer 2010, I have creted workflow.

I used the task "Collect Data From User", and I defined field as "date and time" type. the user filling the task field and I can see the result in the list.

But if the user filling the "10/03/2011" date, in the list I see the date as "10/02/2011". why this is happen? and how can I fix it?

I've seen this before and it has been related to time differences. Is the server you're running in a different time zone to your system?

Is the locale and timezone of the server different of that to your PC? –  James Love Oct 3 '11 at 13:29
can you guid me how to find the time and date of the local and timezone of the server? thanks :) –  liron Oct 3 '11 at 14:01
Site Settings -> Site Administration -> Regional Settings. Compare this to the time zone of your PC. –  James Love Oct 3 '11 at 14:14
When I reach to the “Site Administration” I do not see the “Regional Setting” option. this is how it look like: Site Administration: Site libraries and lists; User alerts; RSS; Search and offline availability; Sites and workspaces; Workflows; Workflow settings; –  liron Oct 3 '11 at 14:54
