Scheduling "Day Starts" sync across all devices

Due to day time savings I need to adjust "Day Starts" settings across all devices, which is troublesome.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Across all devices I have the same value "Day Starts" like 09:00.
2. I set up Scheduling "Day Starts" from my iPhone to 08:00 and do sync to apply changes.
3. I open my Anki from Mac/Windows and do sync to have up to date changes in cards and settings, but the "Day Starts" is still 09:00
4. I do review from my Mac and click sync.
5. Next day I open Anki from my iPhone to review cards and expect them to appear at 08:00, but they won't appear until 09:00

    Hi Vladimir,

    Currently that setting is synced based on the most recently modified device. Almost any action you take on a device will mark it as modified, so you need to make sure all devices are fully synced, change the setting, and then immediately sync it to other devices to ensure it goes in the right direction. You can also force a one way sync in the preferences to force the change to sync in one direction.
