That is the time when is best to begin.  You need a new subject after “when”

**Where/when REPLACE a prepositional phrase, so the preposition isn’t still there.

Oakland is the place that I live in.   Prepositional phrase with the relative pronoun in front.
Oakland is the place where I live in.  You don’t still have the preposition.

9:00am is the time at which my alarm rings.  Prepositional phrase= at which=at that time
