Access Schedules

 

Schedules

The third tab within Access Users is the Schedules tab. Access Schedules are used to limit a users access to the doors & locks they are given access to. For example, an employer may create a schedule for Monday - Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM each day. Selecting this schedule for the Access User would send this schedule to the lock as part of their credential. When this user's pin number is entered on the lock, the door will only unlock if within the parameters of the schedule.

Access Schedules

The first sub-tab under Schedules is Access Schedules. This tab shows a list of all existing schedules that have been created in the account, the option to edit them and create new Access Schedules.

Add Access Schedule

To add a schedule, click on the Add Schedule button. A pop-up window will appear with the Schedule Creator.

Create a new schedule by entering the following:

Name

Select a unique name for your schedule. It also helps to include some detail about the schedule so it can be easily identified when applying to an Access User.

Access Exception

Access Exception schedules, also known as Holiday schedules, are optional and can be applied to an Access Schedule in order to restrict access during certain days. For example, a business may be closed on major US Holidays. So an Access Exception schedule can be created to include all of these dates. These can then be applied to an Access Schedule in order to deny access on these dates.

Help on creating Access Exception schedules is below.

Daily Schedule

Use the schedule creator to set access for each day of the week. Each access entry should have a starting and ending time. Multiple time ranges can be created for each day. For example, you can create a split shift for each day. In this case, you would have two time ranges for the day. Each day can have up to four time ranges.

Schedule Creator Controls

The Access Schedule creator starts with a template for each day of the week. Leave a day empty to completely restrict access for that day. Each day can have up to four time ranges. Below is an example of the schedule Monday - Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM.

To add another schedule line within a day, click on the plus sign. To remove a line, click on the trash icon for that row. If you have a daily schedule created that you would like to copy to other days, click on the Copy icon on the day you want to copy it to and select the day to copy it from.
