A schedule stipulates when a flow runs and is based on the date, time, or event. You can define schedules to handle recurring events, holidays, or special situations; for example, your regular business hours or afterhours support. For more information about schedule creation in Genesys Cloud, see Schedules.

Available for all flow types, use the Evaluate Schedule Group action with the Evaluate Schedule action to make routing decisions based on previously defined schedules and schedule groups.
