Use the following steps to create the Time Schedules and Holiday Schedules at the Group level.
Time Schedule at the Group level enables administrators to create schedules that can be accessed company-wide by anyone with features that use a scheduling option. Schedules are created as events which can be based on criteria such as: holidays, date, day of week, and time of day. Recurring pattern options are provided to help set up multiple occurrences.
Convenience - Customize the use of select features to your company’s unique schedule.
Efficiency - Build or edit Time Schedule templates company-wide so individual users are not required to duplicate the effort. Add, change or delete Time Schedules quickly.

From the Voice Administration menu, select the Profile option.
- Select the newly created Schedule Name link and click Add.
- Enter a more detailed description of the time schedule name in the Event Name field.
