Multiple Week Timers

Instead of requiring you to keep editing your timers depending on your changing routine or holiday plans,
we have designed the possibility of using multiple Week Timers.
This allows to create events and define to which kind of week they refer.
For example, this is helpful to distinguish your typical week from your holiday week.
There is always a Primary Week Timer within the project, plus it is possible to set other Secondary Week Timers (this needs to be done using EVE Manager software
configuration) and use the Week Timer Calendar component to select the days of the year in which the Secondary Week Timer needs to be considered by the system to trigger your events.

 

In order to enable the management of timers feature, it is necessary to add the “Week
Timer” module within the installation project using EVE Manager configuration software.
