| Overview

Special Schedule is a schedule that allows a Facility manager to introduce a schedule that is outside of the actual set of building and zone schedules. 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 based on a holiday calendar for a year at any specific date which is not a vacation for the building.

A schedule like this on a Saturday or on any public holiday which 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 building, zone, named schedule, or any vacation for that zone for that 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.

The special schedule can be added for buildings or zones via CCU, portal, or App and will cascade to the other parts of the system.
