Each schedule has a corresponding Actions column that has options to enable or disable that schedule using the On or Off toggle next to the schedule name. Click the Edit Edit icon to edit a schedule.

29.1. Adding a new schedule

You can only create schedules from a template, project, or inventory source, and not directly on the main Schedules screen.

To create a new schedule:


  1. Click the Schedules tab of the resource that you are configuring. This can be a template, project, or inventory source.
  2. Click Add. This opens the Create New Schedule window.

    Create schedule
  3. Enter the appropriate details into the following fields:

    • Name: Enter the name.
    • Optional: Description: Enter a description.
    • Start date/time: Enter the date and time to start the schedule.
    • Local time zone: The start time that you enter must be in this time zone.
    • Repeat frequency: Appropriate scheduling options display depending on the frequency you select.

      The Schedule Details display when you establish a schedule, enabling you to review the schedule settings and a list of the scheduled occurrences in the selected Local Time Zone.


      Jobs are scheduled in UTC. Repeating jobs that run at a specific time of day can move relative to a local time zone when Daylight Savings Time shifts occur. The system resolves the local time zone based time to UTC when the schedule is saved. To ensure your schedules are correctly created, set your schedules in UTC time.

  4. Click Save.

Use the On or Off toggle to stop an active schedule or activate a stopped schedule.
