What is a schedule?

A schedule is a period of time during which a door or gate can be accessed. You will create schedules so that your users can have access to the specific areas they need, during the specific times you set. For example, you might set a 9am-5pm schedule on a lobby door so your employees can access your building for their shift. Before 9am and after 5pm, their credentials will not work on the door and they will not have access to your property.

How to Create a Schedule

1) To create a schedule, click on the ‘Access Control’ tab in your Genea admin dashboard. Navigate to the 'Schedules' section. Click the '+ Add button. 

2) Name the schedule, add a description (optional), and then edit the days and times for the schedule. 

If you would like to place any Holiday Exceptions on the schedule, click '+ Add Holiday' and select the desired holidays. To learn more about holiday exceptions, click here

Press the ‘Save’ button to create the schedule. Once created, the schedule will be ready to apply to an access group or to a door reader as an automatic door unlock schedule.
