Creating a Holiday Schedule

To properly route calls, Administrators can create schedules (business hours, after hours, and holidays) in the Nextiva Voice Administration Portal to dictate when call processing policies are automatically activated and deactivated. Administrators can specify when service actions (e.g. ringing the phones, forwarding calls, and routing to voicemail) should take place by using schedules.

Create a holiday schedule to set recurring holidays, such as Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.
