Introduction

This is a UI module for maintaining service point opening hours.

Terminology

  • Regular Library Hours Validity Period: normal opening hours for a service point between two dates.
  • Regular Library Hours: time frames defined for week days which defines the opening hours and closing times for a a Regular Library Hours Validity Period.
  • Exception Period: overrides Regular Library Hours for specific dates and service points.
  • All day opening: the service point is open from 00:00 to 24:00.

Usage

Regular Library Hours Validity Period

Add new

  1. From the settings menu navigate to Calendar -> Library hours.
  2. Select the appropriate service point.
  3. Click New under the Regular Library Hours label.
  4. Specify the date range when the period will be valid. You can leave Valid To field empty. In this case the validity affects for the future with no end.
  5. Name your validity period (e.g.: Study Period).
  6. Using your mouse specify the time ranges for every day of the week by dragging. When you leave a column empty that means the service point is closed on that day. If you would like to specify a non-stop opening simply click on the All day opening.
  7. If you would like to remove an opening simply click on the X (right upper corner of the blue box).
  8. Click Save.

Currently you have to define Regular Library Hours for all the service points separately.

  2. Select the appropriate service point.
  3. Click on the period you would like to modify.
  4. Follow the steps above from step 4.

  8. Now you have two options:
  • defining an exception when the service point is closed instead of the regular opening. In this case click Closed. You can define closed period only for a whole day.
