  1. Display a Schedule.
  2. From the Display Mode drop-down menu, select Weekly Schedule.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Double-click the time bar segment. The Modify Event(s) dialog box appears.
    Note: Alternatively, you can select and right-click the event on the time bar and select Modify Selected Event(s) from the menu.
  5. Adjust the starting time (hour and minute) and value as desired for the event using the check boxes and drop-down menus and click OK.
    • You can also change the value of an event by selecting and right-clicking the event and selecting a value from the menu, if the value type is Boolean (True/False), binary, or multistate with less than eight states.
    • To specify an event end time, make sure no event is selected, right-click where you want the event to end, and select End Event from the pop-up menu. Once you specify an end time, you can drag the tail edge right or left to adjust the end time.
    • You can adjust start times and end times of events by dragging the edges of the time bar segment to the right or left. When adjusting a time, a small pop-up window shows the digital time of day based on a 24-hour clock, and adjusts in 5-minute increments.
    • You cannot drag the end of an event that ends at midnight. To do this, first right-click and select the End Event. Once the event ends prior to midnight, you can then drag to adjust the end time.
    • If you have a gap in the schedule between two events, you can drag the edge of one to meet the edge of the other. Once you do, the events become locked together so that the second begins as soon as the first ends, the begin/end points move together, and the gap is removed from the schedule.
  6. Repeat Step 4 and Step 5 as necessary.
  7. Click Save.
    Note: Once you click Save, the schedule object goes into effect and writes the new value to the scheduled object if necessary.
