    Example: Configuring a Service to Be Active During Nonwork Hours (C-Web Interface)

    This example shows how to configure a schedule for the Internet-Gold service in the sample data to be active:

    • Monday–Friday outside the 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM work day
    • January 1 of the following year—All day

    The sample schedule:

    • Deactivates the Internet-Gold service from 8:30 AM through 4:29 PM.
    • Activates the service at 4:30 PM.
    • Does not have a preparation time configured for the SAE.

    This configuration avoids schedule overlap.

    For demonstration purposes, the sample schedule is configured in the global configuration to make the service schedule available to all subscribers to the Internet-Gold service.

    1. Specify the default schedule authorization plug-in for the Internet-Gold service:
      1. Click Configure, expand Services>Global, and click
