Schedules are used in dial plans (Schedule node) to route your callers differently depending on the day and time that they call (schedules follow the default time zone). For example, you can route calls to a day-time auto attendant during business hours and to a night-time auto attendant during after hours. Additionally, you can add holidays to a schedule for another level of customization for your callers.
