Operating schedules are used for common definitions of time, which are then applied to multiple groups under multiple circumstances. An operating schedule stipulates when a flow runs, based upon the date, time, or event. You can define operating schedules to handle recurring events, holidays, or special situations, such as your regular business hours or after-hours support. 

Architect uses operating schedules to determine how to manage inbound and outbound interaction routing. For example, an operating schedule can determine which flow to execute during open or closed hours.

To manage operating schedules for the organization, click Admin. Under Routing, click Operating SchedulesOn the Schedules page, you can view the list of currently active operating schedules and their recurrence type.
