Time Modes

Time modes are used to define operating hours. A time mode includes segments of open hours on each weekday, holiday or special days. With time modes, it is convenient for tasks like setting what time a room is available for booking, or an office is open.

Each Location can define its own Time Modes, since they may be in different countries or timezones.

To edit time modes for location, go to Location > Settings > Time Modes

Click OK to save the mode


Date and time defined in the time mode are the time segment that the mode is on. Sometimes you may think reversely how time mode works. For example, if you want to use time during holidays, turn off all weekdays, and turn on holidays.


Holidays are special dates that normally office is out. You can edit Holiday dates by click Holiday tab:
