Scheduling an Experience

Anya Updated by Anya

If you'd like an Experience to only run during specific days and/or hours, you can use the Schedule tab to schedule alternate, fallback Experiences. If a customer accesses this Experience during normal hours, they will engage with this Experience as normal. If they try to access it during the time range you've set, they will instead access an alternate, fallback Experience that you have selected.

This feature is especially helpful if your Agents are not available 24/7 and you have an Experience with Add Service steps. For example, for times outside your company's operating hours, you can set your alternate Experience to include a Book Appointment option instead of the Add Service.

To schedule an Experience, follow the steps below.

  1. Select the Experience you'd like to schedule
  2. Click on the Settings icon in the top right corner and select the "Schedule" tab
  3. Ensure the timezone is correct. If you'd like to change it, use the dropdown to select the preferred time zone. Note that you can type the name of the time zone you're looking for in the field for an easier search.
  4. Click the "+Add schedule rule" button
  5. Use the checkboxes to select the days then add the time range using the dropdown. Select the "+Add schedule rule" button again to add different time ranges for different days of the week.
When scheduling an alternate Experience for overnight hours (before and after midnight) you'll need to break up the time ranges into two separate scheduling rules. Set the hours for the morning, starting with 12:00AM until your end time. Add another schedule rule and set the evening hours by inputting your start time and then the end time of 11:59PM. See image above to view an example.
  1. Use the "Alternate Experience" dropdown to select the Experience that you'd like to run when it is outside of the time you set.
  2. Click "Save" to successfully schedule the Experience.
Click the X to the right of the "End Time" field to delete the time range in that row.
