On always overrides Off in weekly schedules in TAC Xenta

Issue

On always overrides Off in weekly schedules in TAC Xenta

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

  • TAC Xenta programmable controllers
  • Xenta Time Schedules
  • Menta

Cause

If you have defined Week schedule event to be on and then add another overlapping event to be off all day the schedule will stay on. This is confusing because the off schedule will be added on top of the on schedule in the editor so you can't see the on schedule anymore.

Resolution

If you want to turn the schedule off temporarily, use an alternative event (uncheck weekly in the editor). Alternative events override all weekly events for the period. If you want to permanently change the schedule to be off just delete/edit the existing event. Remember, if no events are defined for a day the schedule will be off all day.
