Time Profile

Configuration settings

For a time profile with multiple records, for example a week pattern and some calendar records, the profile is valid when any entry is valid. For Server Edition, this type of configuration record can be saved as a template and new records created from a template.

These settings are mergeable. Changes to these settings do not require a reboot of the system.

For a Server Edition network, these settings can be configured at the network level and are then automatically replicated in the configuration of all systems in the network. They can only be seen and edited at the individual system configuration level if record consolidation is switched off.

For example you cannot have a time profile starting at 18:00 and ending 8:00. If this time period is required two Time Entries should be created – one starting at 18:00 and ending 11:59, the other starting at 00:00 and ending 8:00.

  • Start Time The time at which the time period starts.

  • End Time The time at which the time period ends. Note that the endtime is at the end of the minute, for example 11:00 is interpreted as 11:00:59, not 11:00:00.

  • Days of Week The days of the week to which the time period applies.

Recurrence Pattern (Calendar Date)

When a new calendar date entry is required, click Add Dateand then enter the settings required. Alternately right-click and select Add Calendar Time Entry. Calendar records can be set for up to the end of the next calendar year.
