Blackout Times Examples


Since working with blackout times tends to not be a focus of regular schedule setup, and administrators use blackout times to respond to a staff member's change of availability, step-by-step instructions on one specific detail tend to help.

If you are using chapter headings to glance over a few details as an introduction to WCONLINE, just remember that these examples are here to use later if needed.

Note that, if you are using slot scheduling, you will see "slot," or your term for slots as defined in language options in Global System Settings, instead of times. Since time-based scheduling is more common and times allow us to give a variety of examples, almost all our instructions refer to times. You can read our instructions assuming that, for example, replacing "10:00am" with "slot 1" works in every scenario.
