With the Opening Hours function, you can inform your visitors about when your location will be open or closed. 

The hours you set here will also be reflected on the iPad and TV you have set up as well as in the Visit Planner.

During closing time, it will be impossible to sign in on the iPad. Similarly, the TV will show when your location is currently closed. During opening hours, the TV will display that you're available for service and draw visitors' attention to the sign-in iPads if you're using any.

Between two intervals during the day, the iPad and TV will announce when your location will open again.

Adding opening hours

Users with the role of a Location Manager can access the Opening Hours settings from the Qminder dashboard by going to the Locations tab, clicking on the location's name and then going the the Opening Hours tab.

When at your computer, simply add a time interval by dragging the mouse across the schedule: 

You can add up to four intervals per day. Note that intervals can not overlap or be shorter than one hour.
