  2. Adjust your start and end time as needed. 
  3. Save changes. 

Daily hours- Use this if your display can have multiple hours of operation scheduled through the week.  For example, you might want your displays to turn off earlier on weekdays and play longer on weekends.  

  1. The hours of operation should be on.  
  2. Enter the display operation schedule for each day of the week.

  3. Save changes.
NOTE: When setting the hours operation per day, be sure to keep it within 12:00am - 12:00am to ensure the hour of operations stay accurate. For example, if I want my display to play start Monday 8:00am - end Tuesday 2:00am then start back up again on Tuesday 8:00am, set the hours of operation to: Monday 8:00am - 2:00am and Tuesday 8:00am - till whenever you'd like it to stop.
