Schedules are used to support group services (e.g. auto attendants and call queues). A schedule establishes a set of time slots in which a feature can execute specific behavior. They are used to route incoming calls based on the day of the week and/or time of day.

Schedules are classified as either Time or Holiday. A Time schedule is typically a schedule that defines the days and hours your office is taking phone calls, and a Holiday schedule is a schedule that defines the days your office is closed or not taking calls.

Administrators can view, modify, add and remove schedules within the admin portal.
