There are several features where we can set “time scheduling”. I mean define timeslot(s).
As I know:
- Schedule layer: Restrict on-call shifts to specific times
- Service Assign and Notify: based on support hours
- Event Rule: On a Recurring Schedule
Each one has its own UI. Then as a user I can’t do the same things on all of those features.
I’m able to set from 6PM to 9AM (out-of-office hours) each day for Schedule layer and Service Assign and Notify. But I can’t for an Event Rule.
I’m able to set from 8AM to 11AM and from 1PM to 6PM every day for Schedule layer. But I can’t for Service Assign and Notify, nor an Event Rule.
As I said, I hope to have a better and unified experience over those features.
I think the Schedule layer is the one with the most options.
I’m able to set:
- from Monday 8AM to Tuesday 6PM
- from Thursday 9AM to Friday 7PM
- from Saturday 9PM to Sunday 10AM
I would like to be able to do the same on the other features.
Sample use case: for some dedicated events (so by using Event Rules) I want to decrease the severity to avoid High urgency incidents outside of office hours. Even if I accept High urgency incidents 24/7 for other events.
Currently I can’t as on Event Rules the timeslot start time must be before end time, I can’t select weekdays, and I can’t have more than 1 “line”.
