Managing working time

You can define different business hours for a specific day using the Working Time section.
To manage working time:
1. In the Working Time section of the Add Calendar or Calendar Details page, click Add Working Time at the bottom of the Working Time table.
The Add Working Time window appears.
a. In the Day/Date panel, specify whether you want to add working time for a specific day of the week or a specific date by selecting the Day or Date option. Then depending on your selection, specify the day of the week from the Day drop-down list, or specify the date by selecting appropriate value(s) from the Year, Month and Date drop-down lists.
When you add a working time, it takes priority over the regular business hours for that day. Hence, while defining the working time, you may also need to include the regular business hours. For example, if your regular working hours on a particular day are 09:00 to 18:00, and you want to indicate additional working hours from 18:00 to 20:00, then you should define the working time as 09:00 to 20:00.
b. In the Time panel, define working hours by specifying the start and end times using the Start Time and End Time drop-down lists respectively.
c. Click:
*Save to add the new working time and go back to the previous page.
*Save & Add New to save the current working time and reload the current window to add another working time.
*Reset to reset the form and remove the information you just entered.
*Cancel to cancel the action and exit the current window.
The new working time is added in the Working Time table.
Note: The non-working time has priority over the working time. Working time defined for a weekend or holiday is not considered while calculating the due date.
2. To change the working hours of an existing day/date entry, in the Working Time table, click the Day or Date link for the entry whose details you want to change.
The Working Time Details window appears.
a. In the Time panel, change working hours by specifying the start and end times using the Start Time and End Time drop-down lists respectively.
b. Click:
*Save to update the new working time and go back to the previous page.
*Reset to reset the form and remove the information you just entered.
*Delete to remove the current working time.
*Cancel to cancel the action and exit the current window.
The updated working time is added in the Working Time table.
Note: You should only change the working hours of the existing entry. If you change the day or date, then it is saved as a new working time entry in the table.
3. To delete one or more working time entries, select the working time entries that you want to delete from the table and then click Delete Working Time.
The selected entries are removed.
