How To Set Up Time Conditions
Modified on: Fri, Jan 17, 2020 at 5:29 PM
Time conditions allow you to create separate business hours, after hours, weekend, and holiday schedules. This way, your phone system will automatically route incoming calls based upon your specific schedule.
If you know that the office will be closed on specific days, or at a specific time, you can add a time condition to automatically account for the office closure. You can then add a custom recording or Auto Attendant for the closure and add it to your Route.
Note: If you are using a Business Hours Time Condition, you should treat the All Times condition as your after hours. This is useful because the All Times condition will act as a catchall event.
Time Conditions Configuration

Select the Features option.
From the Drop-down menu select Time Conditions.

Clicking Create New you can create new Time Conditions for the Account.

Time Conditions Tips and Tricks
If a Time Condition needs to run from 12 AM to 9 AM and from 5 PM to 12 AM enter it as:
12:00 AM to 9: 00 AM & 5:00 PM to 11:59 PM
Yearly occurring Time Conditions are usually used for creating Holiday Routing.
