Time of Day Access


An access list determines whether a call should be extended to a remote destination that is enabled for single-number reach. With the addition of time-based control, the Time-of-Day-Based Access List feature adds time as another determination factor. The feature allows administrators and users to determine whether a call should reach a remote destination based on the time of day when the call is received.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager currently relies on time periods and time schedules for the time-of-day routing feature. A time period comprises a time range that is defined by a start time and end time; a time period can also include a repetition interval either as days of the week or a specified date on the yearly calendar. A time schedule comprises a group of time periods. To remain consistent with the existing time-of-day routing feature, the time-of-day access list feature adopts the same concepts to provision time of day and to associate time schedules to access lists.


Note For more information on Time of Day Access, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.
