An exception event occurs instead of the scheduled weekly events for a single date, date range, calculated date, or calendar.
For example, you create an exception event in March for an intense aerobics class in the gym to open an air vent to 100 % from 06:30 to 17:00 every Wednesday in March. This exception event takes precedence over the regularly scheduled weekly Wednesday events.
When scheduling exception events, you can use three exception types to provide flexibility and control in your schedule.
A single date exception event can occur on a single day, or you can use the options for the event to occur on more than one day. Options such as Any year and Any day provide flexibility to a single date.
For example, to schedule a single date event to take place every year on October 31, you select the following single date options:
Year: Any year
Day of month: 31
Day of week: Any day

A date range exception event is an event that lasts over a period of time. In addition to a specific day of month, you can schedule daily exceptions by selecting a Start time and End time to provide the flexibility to a date range.
For example, to schedule an exception event to occur from the first day of July to the last day of August where the priority is 16, but each day from 08:00 to 17:00 the value is 15.50, select:
Start date: 2021-07-01
End date: 2021-08-31
Start time: 08:00
End time: 17:00

A calculated date is an exception event that recurs. Other than a specific month and week, you can select Any month and Any week or Last week , to provide flexibility to a calculated date.
For example, to schedule the Monday of the first week of every month for an exception event, select the following options:
Month: Any month
Week of month: First week
Day of week: Monday

A calendar reference allows you to apply an exception event for all dates specified in the calendar. For example, to schedule exception events for all holidays on a calendar, you select the calendar you want to reference and the schedule will follow the holidays created in the calendar.
