Voice over IP Phone System Feature

Time Frames



Time frames allow you to control the scheduling of the system.

 You configure time frames using the Time Frames page. To display this page, click the Time Frames icon at the top of the page. 



Three common time frames are:


1. Open Hours (for example, M-F 9am-5pm)


2. Holidays (Independence Day, Thanksgiving, New Year’s, and so on)


3. Closed Hours (all other times)


Time frames can be both shared (system-wide and set by the administrator) or personal to your extension.

You can add a time frame to your extension by clicking the Add Time Frame.




To Add Time Frames


1. From the Time Frames page, click Add Time Frame.



2. In the Name field, enter a name for this time frame.


 3. Next to When, select the time period when the time frame will be applied:


Always = select this option if the time frame will always be applied.

Click Save to complete the procedure.


Days of the week and times = select this option to select days and times when the time frame will be applied.

Proceed to “If you select Days of the week and times” on page .


Specific dates or ranges = select this option to specify a specific date or range of dates.

Proceed to “If you select Specific dates or ranges” on page .




Setting Days of the Week and Times  


1. Using the check boxes next to the name of each day of the week, check the days when the time frame will be applied.

A blue line to the right of checked day shows the default hours for this time frame (9:00 AM through 5:00 PM).


2. To change the start time, drag the button on the left side of the blue bar

either to the left to begin the start time earlier or to the right to begin the start time later.

3. To change the end time, drag the button on the right side of the blue bar

either to the left to shorten the end time or to the right to lengthen the end time. 


Hint: To fine-tune start and end times, click start time or end time button,
and then use the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to change the time in 5-minute increments.


 4. By default, each day is made up of one time period.

However, you can use the icon to define two time periods per day.

For example, the figure below shows a setup for an office that answers calls

in the morning and afternoon, and then transfers calls to an answering service over lunch, on Monday through Friday.

By doing this, you would create two time frames (for example, one from 8 to noon and another from 1:00 to 5:00 PM).


5.  Click Save to save your selections.


Specific dates or ranges 

 Fields appear for entering dates or ranges


Setting Dates or Ranges 


1. Click in the left field, and then select a starting date and time from the pop-up calendar.



2. Click in the right field, and then select an ending date and time from the pop-up calendar.


3. To specify additional ranges, click the "+" icon to display another row of fields, and then repeat steps 1 and 2 in the new fields.

Repeat this step for each additional date or range you want to specify. To delete a date or range, click the "X" icon next to the appropriate row.



4. Click Save to save your selections.  

Engineering Note

 We have advanced feature controls in which, for example, we can automatically close for lunch, without the use of a "night button".
