Add/Edit Hours and Alternate Hours to Location and Space

This document demonstrates how to add/edit hours for use in Spaces and D!bs.

Click here to view a short video overview of the, "Location Setup" area.

To access the Location Setup area, you need to first be sure you’re logged in at the admin permission level.

Choose the "Settings" button and select the "Location Setup" option from the drop-down menu.

 

Adding/Editing Hours in a Location (branch)

  • From the "Location Setup" list view, choose the pencil "Edit" icon to the right of the location name you wish to add or edit hours.
  • Choose the "Hours" Tab from the top-right of the page

  • Click on the pencil "Edit" icon on the top-right above the hours table to make the hours editable.
  • Enter the Open and Close times on the days desired
  • When you are finished, select the "Save" button at the top-right above the hours table

Copying Hours from a Location to its Child Spaces

After you have hours input into a location (branch), you can copy those hours to a selection of spaces assigned to that same location.  This can prove to be a huge time saver as you assign the same hours to multiple spaces at once.

  • While in the hours section of a location, select the "Copy To" icon at the top-right of the hours chart, to open the copy hours dialogue pop-up window.
  • Select the rooms in the location you wish to copy the location hours to and select "Yes"

Add/Edit Hours in an individual Space

You may want to edit the hours in an individual space, so that they are different then other rooms in your library branch.

  • From the "Location Setup" list view, choose the pencil "Edit" icon to the right of the space name (not the location name).

  • Click on the pencil "Edit" icon on the top-right above the hours table to make the hours editable.
  • Enter the Open and Close times on the days desired
  • When you are finished, select the "Save" button at the top-right above the hours table

 Add/Edit Alternate Hours

"Alternate Hours", is a way to go about temporary closing your library due to holidays, or to shorten your hours due to the summer season, etc. 

  • From the "Location Setup" list view, choose the pencil "Edit" icon to the right of the location or space name you wish to add or edit Alternate Hours for.
  • Choose the "Hours" Tab from the top-right of the edit page of the location or space you chose to edit
  • Now select the "Add New" button to the right of the "Alternate Hours" tab and choose a start and end date to access the alternate hours edit cell
  • From the hours table cell, you can enter open and close times, or just leave the day marked as closed
  • To edit alternate hours that you already have recorded, you can select the edit button icon to the far right of the alternate hour listing

Copying Alternate Hours from a location to a Child Space

Just like standard hours, after you have alternate hours input into a location (branch), you can copy those hours to a selection of spaces assigned to that same location, saving you time.

  • While in the alternate hours section of a location, select the "Copy To" icon at the top-right of the alternate hours chart, to open the copy hours dialogue pop-up window.
  • Select the rooms in the location you wish to copy the location hours to and select "Yes"
