Anyone knows how to link the heating and cooling schedule to the occupancy hours?

What I want is to turn the heating and cooling on when people are in the place at certain temperature.

Thanks a lot! Leshi

There is no way to do this directly in Energy+ without writing a script using EMS (Energy Management System). The easiest way I have found to coordinate schedules is to use excel to create the schedules. In excel, I can coordinate values and use conditional formatting to determine values for each schedule. I then use excel's "concat" function to develop Schedule:Compact objects. The image below shows schedule development for occupancy, lighting/receptacle and HVAC systems. The same could be done with thermostat schedules.
