Using Time Groups and Time Conditions with FreePBX



  • The most common use of Time Conditions is having the phone system automatically go into and out of "Night Mode."

    To set this up you first create a Time Group, then you create a Time Condition based on the Time Group.

    Navigate to Applications -> Time Groups

    Click add time group
    0_1476660100559_upload-b505cbbe-619e-481d-bb8b-7c55b5a1aaab

    Give it a name and then set the times that it will be active. Leave the things you do not need to specify blank.
    Here is an example of 8-5 M-F.
    You can easily get more complex by adding additional time with the link at the bottom. Say 8-5 MWF and 98-6 on TuThu.
