LibCal: Managing Hours - Daily Templates

Problem/Question

I need to create or update a daily template.


Overview

Create a daily template and use it in several locations in different weekly templates. To save time edit the hours in the daily template to update the hours in all the locations that use it at one time.


Solution

  • Login in to the LibCal dashboard
  • Select "Spaces & Equipment" from the Admin menu at the top of the window.

     
  • Select the "Hours Templates" tab.

     
  • To add or edit a daily template scroll to the bottom of all of the weekly templates to view the list of daily templates.
     
  • Click the edit icon or the "Add New Daily Template."

     
  • I recommend starting the name of you daily template with the name of the space or location where it will be used. This will make it clear to others what the template is used for so they will not edit it inadvertently. The other advantage is that all of the templates for a given space will be appear together in lists. Making them easier to find.
    • As shown below edit the "Start" and "End" times for each open period you want in the daily template.
    • The period name is optional, but keep in mind that it will be visible to the public.
    • Click the "Save" button when you're done.

Changes to daily templates update all the location in which they are used instantly. However any open web pages that display hours set by the daily template will have to be refreshed to show the changes.
