You may find that during some periods throughout the year, you are switching up your service availability every month. The holiday season usually comes with its own slew of scheduling challenges. You may have one schedule for November, one schedule for December, and then a totally different schedule at the start of the new year.
Let's say this is the case for you and you have it set on your TimeTap account so that from 12-01-2017 through 12-31-2017 your available for service-based appointments on Monday through Wednesday from 8:00am-12:00pm then 1:00pm-5:00pm. Starting on January 8th of the new year, however, you are going back to your tried and true schedule of Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 8:00am-12:00pm then 1:00pm-5:00pm. You'll be able to see this set up in your Staff Profile found under Settings → Staff → Click on the "View Details" button in the staff list and navigate to the Service Availability tab:
Halfway through December, you've been on this holiday schedule and you decide that you really like front-loading your weeks. You would like to have Thursdays and Fridays off more often. You determine that you're going to continue with this schedule into the new year and see how things go. Besides, you can always switch back.
Begin by removing deleting the January 1, 2019 - Onward date range, move your cursor over the date you would like to remove and click the delete button:
With the date range remove, now it's time to extend the December availability into the new year, go to that date range, move your cursor over the date and click the Edit button:
Once the date range is in Edit mode, you'll see the effective start and through dates are pre-populated with the values of the date range you're editing:
At this point, you have the choice of whether you want to have the availability stay in effect "Forever" (or indefinitely) or you can choose to just extend the end date of your current schedule and push back the start of your Monday, Wednesday, Friday availability to February or some later date.
Let's say you choose to extend it "Forever". You can always come back and modify the availability later to go back to your Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule. You select the radio button next to Forever and click "Update Date Range":
Once you press the green "Save" button your availability will update so that your previous date range of 12-01-2017 to 12-31-2017 will now read 12-01-2017:
As always, make sure to test the changes you made to your date range by clicking the blue "Preview Scheduler" button in the top right to quickly click through your client facing scheduler to make sure all service availability is appearing as you expect it to.
