Configure Time of Day Sets

Time of Day sets are groups of hours that you associate with rules and filters to execute different actions at different times of the day.

For example, if you define two different sets for Business Hours and Outside Business Hours, you can assign different rules to each of these sets. You may want your rules to alert your system administrator through email and pager during working hours. Outside of business hours, you may want your rules to alert your administrator by pager only, and automatically shut down the offending PC.

You can easily create as many sets as required to reflect all of your business needs. A well-planned group of sets provide you with versatile and responsive rules that perform the way you want and when you want.

Each set you create only applies to the manager you select when you create the set. If you need a similar set for another manager, create it separately with the other manager.

Configure a time of day set

  1. Open the Build > Groups view.
  2. In the Groups grid, click File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/080/Button-Plus(Gray)_15x12.png and select Time of Day Set.

    The Edit pane opens, displaying the Time of Day Set form.


  3. In the Name field, enter a name for the new time of day set.
  4. In the Description field, enter a brief description of the time of day set and its intended use.
  5. Click the Manager drop-down menu and select the manager that hosts this time of day set. If you are editing an existing group, this field displays the hosting manager.

    The form includes a time grid that lets you define a time of day set for the manager. The time grid is based on a one-week period and includes:??

    • Seven rows, where each row represents one day of the week.
    • 24 numbered columns, where each column represents one hour of the day. The white column headers represent morning hours (midnight to noon). The shaded column headers represent evening hours (noon to midnight).
    • Columns with two check boxes that divide each hour into two half-hour (30-minute) periods.

    Together, the rows, columns, and check boxes divide an entire week into 30-minute periods.

  6. In the Time grid, select the half-hour periods that define this time of day set.
  7. Click Save.

    The new time of day set displays in the Groups grid.

Select periods in the time grid

  2. Click File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/080/Button-Gear_18x15.png and select Delete.
  3. At the confirmation prompt, click Yes.
  4. Click Activate to apply your changes to every agent associated with the connector profile.

  5. Click Close to return to the Groups grid.
