Time Conditions

Time conditions are used to control call flow based upon time and date.

A Time Condition contains a time group. You can enable Time Conditions on an inbound route. When a call arrives at the Time Condition destination, the PBX will check the current system time and date against the time groups in the Time Condition.

You can also apply Time Conditions to an outbound route to limit when the users can use the outbound route.

Example

  1. Create a Time Condition called "LunchBreak" that starts at 12:00 p.m and end at 1:00 p.m. In your inbound route, set the Time Condition destination to voicemail.
  2. Create a Time Condition called "Business Hours" that defines your normal office hours. Apply the Time Condition to your inbound route. You can also apply the Time Condition in your outbound route to prevent employees from making outbound calls outside the office hours.
