How do I create a schedule that shows the building (dorm) is unoccupied in the summer months? The set point temperatures and occupant load is different for three months. I cannot figure out how to build and implimeent a summer/nonsummer schedule.

In the Schedule, when I create a schedule, I cannot scroll down and click on the calendar days or anything. I also cannot find useful schedules to download in the BCL

You can create rules for a schedule that only apply to a specific date range and to specific days of the week. Our documentation describes how it works and you can also look at the primary or secondary school template to see an example.

That link does not seem to work.
