Time Schedule Configuration


A time schedule comprises a group of time periods. Time schedules get assigned to partitions. Time schedules determine the partitions where calling devices search when they are attempting to complete a call during a particular time of day. Multiple time schedules can use a single time period.

For more detailed information on time schedules, refer to "Time-of-Day Routing" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

Use the following topics to find, add, update, copy, or delete a time schedule:

Finding a Time Schedule

Because you might have several time schedules in your network, Cisco Unified Communications Manager lets you locate specific time schedules by using specific criteria as the basis. Use the following procedure to locate time schedules.


Note During your work in a browser session, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration retains your time schedule search preferences. If you navigate to other menu items and return to this menu item, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration retains your time schedule search preferences until you modify your search or close the browser.


Procedure


Step 1 Choose Call Routing > Class of Control > Time Schedule.

The Find and List Time Schedules window displays.

Step 2 To find all records in the database, ensure the dialog box is empty; go to Step 3.

To filter or search records:

From the drop-down list box, select a search parameter.

Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable.


Note To add additional search criteria click the + button. When you add criteria, the system searches for a record that matches all criteria that you specify. To remove criteria, click the - button to remove the last added criteria or click the Clear Filter button to remove all added search criteria.


Step 3 Click Find.

All or matching records display. You can change the number of items that display on each page by choosing a different value from the Rows per Page drop-down list box.


Note You can delete multiple records from the database by checking the check boxes next to the appropriate record and clicking Delete Selected. You can delete all configurable records for this selection by clicking Select All and then clicking Delete Selected.


Step 4 From the list of records that display, click the link for the record you want to view.


Note To reverse the sort order, click the up or down arrow, if available, in the list header.


The window displays the item that you choose.

Table 48-1 describes the time schedule configuration settings.

Table 48-1 Time Schedule Configuration Settings 

Field
Description
Time Schedule Information

Name

Enter a name in the Name field. The name can comprise up to 50 alphanumeric characters and can contain any combination of spaces, periods (.), hyphens (-), and underscore characters (_). Ensure each time schedule name is unique to the plan.

Note Use concise and descriptive names for your time schedules.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides the All the time time schedule. This special, system time schedule includes all days and all hours, is published to end users, and cannot be deleted; this time schedule can be copied.

Description

Enter a description for this time schedule.

Time Period Information

Available Time Periods

This field displays after a time schedule has been added.

Choose a time period in the Available Time Periods list box and add it to the Selected Time Periods list box by clicking the down arrow button between the two list boxes.

To add a range of time periods at once, click the first time period in the range; then, hold down the Shift key while clicking the last time period in the range. Click the down arrow button between the two list boxes to add the range of time periods.

To add multiple time periods that are not contiguous, hold down the Control (Ctrl) key while clicking multiple time periods. Click the down arrow button between the two list boxes to add the chosen time periods.

Selected Time Periods

This list box lists the time periods that were selected for this time schedule. To remove a time period from the list of selected time periods, choose the time period to remove and click the up arrow between the two list boxes. To reorder the selected time periods, choose a time period and click the up and down arrows to the right of this list box.

Note If multiple time periods get associated to a time schedule and the time periods overlap, time periods with Day of Year settings take precedence over time periods with Day of Week settings.

Example: If a Time Period configured for January 1st is configured as No Office Hours and another time period is configured for the same day of the week (for example, Sunday to Saturday) as 08:00 to 17:00, the time period for January 1st gets used. In this example, No Office Hours takes precedence.

Note Time interval settings take precedence over No Office Hour settings for the same day of the year or day of the week.

Example: One time period specifies for Saturday as No Office Hours. Another time period specifies Saturday hours of 08:00 to 12:00. In this example, the resulting time interval specifies 08:00 to 12:00 for Saturday.

Deleting a Time Schedule

The following procedure describes how to delete a time schedule.

Before You Begin

You cannot delete time schedules that partitions are using. To find out which items are using the time schedule, choose Dependency Records from the Related Links drop-down list box that is on the Time Schedule Configuration window. If the dependency records are not enabled for the system, the dependency records summary window displays a message. For more information about dependency records, see the "Accessing Dependency Records" section on page A-2. If you try to delete a time schedule that is in use, Cisco Unified Communications Manager displays an error message. Before deleting a time schedule that is currently in use, you must perform either or both of the following tasks:

Assign a different time schedule to any partitions that are using the time schedule that you want to delete. See the "Configuring a Partition" section on page 49-2.

Delete the partitions that are using the time schedule that you want to delete. See the "Partition Configuration" chapter.

Procedure


Step 1 In the menu bar, choose Call Routing > Class of Control > Time Schedule.

Step 2 Locate the time schedule that you want to delete. See the "Finding a Time Schedule" section.

Step 3 Check the check box of the time schedule that you want to delete and click Delete Selected.

A message displays that states that you cannot undo this action.

Step 4 To delete the time schedule, click OK or to cancel the deletion, click Cancel.


Caution Before initiating this action, check carefully to ensure that you are deleting the correct time schedule. You cannot retrieve deleted time schedules. If a time schedule is accidentally deleted, you must rebuild it.


Tip You can also delete a time schedule by locating and displaying the time schedule that you want to delete and clicking Delete.
