Blackout Times Examples

Since working with blackout times tends to not be a focus of regular schedule setup, we have noticed that people sometimes need step-by-step instructions on one specific detail, even though they already know how to use other parts of WCONLINE®.

While working with blackout times is not difficult, making changes tends to need more detailed instructions because both new and longer-term customers have to make changes at some unexpected point, such as when a tutor has just changed their whole course schedule.

The examples here are probably more than you will need; there is no requirement to read the whole chapter.

If you are reading through the manual as an introduction to WCONLINE®, just remember that these examples are here to use later if needed.
