In general, a schedule is a set of time periods either included or excluded in monitoring services.
A Schedule can be set up and applied to the number of items, including:
Applying a schedule to reports to exclude specified time periods from calculations, so that time period is not included in reports.
Applying a schedule to a device to pause monitoring during specified periods, so certain time periods are not included in monitoring, nor monitoring results.
Applying a schedule to a group. The schedule assigns time periods of alerting to groups. This creates time periods of on-call coverage for specific groups of persons or disables alerts during specific time periods. Dotcom-Monitor allows for multiple schedules within the same account. Once a schedule has been created, it can be assigned to a group.
