Defining and managing schedules can be cumbersome. To help with this process, use schedules with schedule groups to allow more flexibility in how your organization manages routing hours. Schedules are the blocks of time for which a call route is selected. Schedule Groups allow you to combine multiple schedules and associate it them to a singular routing definition. You can assign the schedules into a designated time zone and group them by type. Types are limited to Open Hours or Closed Hours. 

Note: PureCloud evaluates schedules in the following order:
  • Emergency
  • Holiday
  • Closed
  • Open

Unless an emergency schedule is activated, the default evaluation is Closed.

To manage schedules for the organization, click Admin. Under Routing, click Scheduling. Next, click the Schedule Groups tab. Here, you can view the list of currently active schedule groups and the schedules to which they belong.
