A recurring time is a specific timeframe that is repeated each day over the course of a date range. In terms of your availability calendar it is similar to blocking a partial day, but for many dates at once.

Example: For the month of August you don't want to book any moves that start earlier than 9am. With a recurring time, you can block times earlier than 9am for every day in August.
Example: You don't want to book any moves that start after 4pm Monday through Friday for the remainder of the year. With a recurring time, you can block all times after 4pm for every weekday until the end of the year.

Add A Recurring Time

At this time there is no way to accomplish this using your availability calendar, aside from adding the record to each day manually. Fortunately, our computer nerds have devised a solution and can block your recurring time for you. All you need to do is submit a ticket with the following details:

  1. The time that needs to be blocked. For example, 7am to 9am or 4pm to 6pm. The time you specify must be the same for each day that you want to block.
  2. The date range that we should block. For example, 8/1 to 8/22. Or, if you want to block days you can specify Monday through Friday. If you only want to block days, like Monday-Friday, you should still specify the date range that this should apply to

Once we have completed your request you will be able to view or edit the recurring times on your availability calendar.

Fixing Conflicts

The availability calendar doesn't allow conflicting records to be saved. This means that if you want to block a full day (or date range), and those dates already have a recurring time blocked, you will need to first delete the conflicting recurring time records. Once the conflicting records have been deleted you will be free to block your dates.

Your availability calendar shows 7am to 9am blocked every day in the month of August. But now you've decided to go on vacation from 8/15 to 8/22 and you want to block that week fully.
To accomplish this, you will delete the 7am to 9am record from each date between 8/15 and 8/22. You can then block the 8/15 to 8/22 date range.
