Add/Edit a Schedule
Create a unique name to help identify this schedule.
Portal Closed Message
Create the text to display outside of regularly scheduled hours. Messages can contain macros indicating the next open business day and time. You can use macros, as well as BBCode to do some low level formatting, such as adding bold, colors, or hyperlinks. Click on Macros or BBCode to display a list of codes and their resulting applications.
Set a schedule to define when customers can initiate support sessions. Set the time zone you want to use for this schedule, and then add one or more schedule entries. For each entry, set the start day and time and the end day and time.
If, for instance, the time is set to start at 8 am and end at 5 pm, a customer can start a session at any time during this window. Sessions already in progress are allowed to continue past the schedule end. If session keys are enabled, a representative can send a customer a session key to start a session even outside of the public site schedule.
