This filter matches the current time of day against the times specified in the matrix and allows or denies an action.
This filter allows you to include or exclude certain times of the day.
To select a time of day (in ¼ hour segments), double click the grid cross referenced by Time and Day. A green tick indicates a match on that time and day will cause the filter result to be true.
Use the mouse to select columns or rows, and then right click to show the popup options menu.
Enabling all of the time and day values ensures a match will occur no matter what time or day the message arrives. Having no time of day filter defined will also ensure that messages will pass for all times of the day.
Inverse will invert all the currently enabled boxes to become blank and visa versa. (Inversing the enabled boxes will essentially create an exclusion filter.)
Use the Select All menu to select every time segment, then use Toggle to OFF or ON to toggle the green ticks.
The filter above reads as:
Any message that arrives from Monday 8am to Friday 9am will cause the result to be true.
A business hours filter could be created by selecting Monday to Friday from 8am until 5pm. Using the inverse option on a particular configuration will create an exclusion filter. For example, not Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.
