Schedules and Holidays

The primary role of Schedules is to define the parameters used in reporting. Schedules ensure that report calculations only include the selected time periods—serving as a filter and resulting in clear and accurate reports. By default, calculations are based on a twenty-four hour time period. Labs available for the full twenty-four hours and labs available for three hours can/should have different definitions of 100% utilization. Holiday Schedules can be defined for holiday lab closures. Holidays apply to all labs, defining them as closed during the specified date range.

Set up a Schedule

  1. Navigate to Admin, then click Schedules.
  2. Click Add Schedule. Enter a name, a description, and then assign the schedule to any desired groups. Click Submit.
  3. Click Add Named Block. Named Blocks are periods of time that are defined within a schedule and used individually as report criteria.
  4. Enter a name, start time, end time, and the days of the week for the new Named Block.
  5. Click Submit to save.
  6. Click Add to create additional Time Blocks in order to specify different hours on different days. Named Blocks are able to contain multiple Time Blocks.
  7. Additional Named Blocks can also be added to separate different types of hours (such as “Open to the Public” or “Reservation Only”).

Schedules allow Closed Dates to be defined for recurring days that labs will be closed.

Set up Holidays

  1. Navigate to Admin, then click Holidays.
  2. Click Add Holiday. Enter the name, description, start date, and end date for the holiday.
  3. Click Submit to save.

Holiday Schedules can be edited or deleted after creation.
