| Overview

A Special Schedule is a schedule that allows a Facility manager to introduce a schedule that is outside of a Building Occupancy. For example, a Facility manager would want to schedule the building on a Saturday for a small duration for which he would want the building's HVAC equipment to run. It further provides the flexibility to create a schedule that overrides a vacation that is created based on a holiday calendar for a year at any specific date which is an active nonholiday for the building.

A schedule like this on a Saturday or on any public holiday that is outside of the actual building schedule has been made possible with the Introduction of a Special Schedule.

The special schedule is a schedule that once added will bypass the zone schedule, named schedule, or any vacation for that zone for that specific time duration, acting as a kind of master schedule. This is quite similar to vacation which can override any schedule but in a reversible way.
