How to Assign Schedules to an Auto Attendant

Choose the image that looks most like your screen once logged in.

Schedules are used with services, such as an Auto Attendant, to specify if the service should perform an action (ring phones, forward calls, route calls to voicemail, etc) should take place. Once you have set up your schedule, you’ll want to assign the schedule to an Auto Attendant to determine when a business-hours menu or an after-hours menu should play.
