Please note, the times set in this section are in EASTERN TIME ONLY. If you are not in the eastern time zone, please convert to eastern before entering times.
Exceptions are handled through your account.
In the next section, select how often you would like this to repeat and then specify the times in 24h time. Please note, since the server is using eastern time, the time will need to be specified as it is in EASTERN TIME. On time must be OUTSIDE of your regular daily schedule. Otherwise the doors will not open. For example, if your normal day to day schedule is set to "scan" and it ends at 16:49 (4:59PM aka 5 o'clock), you have to set your schedule on time for 17:01 (or 5:01PM) to get the doors to open correctly. Your "Off" time will also need to be outside the regular schedule. Please note, in this example the doors will lock for about 1 minute between the schedule disabling and the exception taking effect.

Since version 5.12.2 we have access to the Mercury API item that controls overrides. This is awesome for 2 reasons:
- It runs on "controller time" vs "server time" (No more converting to eastern!)
- Overlapping a day to day schedule is no longer a concern.
Configuring an Override
Please note, converting time zones no longer applies. Enter time normally.
- Navigate to Physical Access
- Use the checkboxes on the left to select the desired doors.
- Click the override button.
Once inside the override box give the override a name, select "unlocked" for door mode, partition (your school), and select starting/ending time.
Please make sure to select a partition. If not selected all users in the access control manager (including ones from other schools) will be able to modify or delete your override!
Editing an Existing Override
Once an override is created it can be edited.
- Select the overrides button in the upper right.
- Once inside click the name of the override.
- Make required changes and click save.
