Schedule fields

The Schedule form uses these fields.

Table 1. Schedule Fields
Field Description
Name Enter a unique name for the schedule.
Time Zone Select the time zone for the schedule. If you select Floating, the time zone will be relative to whatever is accessing the item at any given time. For example, if a resource manager in Amsterdam sets a floating schedule for 8:00A.M. to 5:00P.M., a user in San Jose sees the schedule as 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. When a schedule is defined in a specific time zone, users in different time zones see the schedule with their own time zone applied.
Parent Select a parent schedule to constrain the new schedule.
Type Enter a label that describes the purpose of the schedule. The system also uses the schedule type to determine how to process certain schedules.
  • Excluded: excludes time periods from SLA counts.
  • Maintenance: specifies time periods where change management activities are allowed. A schedule containing maintenance schedule entries cannot also contain blackout schedule entries.
  • Blackout: excludes time periods from change management schedules. A schedule containing blackout schedule entries cannot also contain maintenance schedule entries.
Description Describe the schedule.
