Within Teamwork Desk, you can create custom groups of business hours for your site.

Note: The Business Hours feature is available on Premium subscription plans and above.

The first set of business hours created are automatically applied to all new tickets. If additional business hours are created, you will need to set up triggers to apply those schedules.

  • Once business hours are created, you can utilize them through triggers and variables.
Click your profile icon in the top right of your site and select Settings from the dropdown menu.




In the settings area, go to the General tab and select Business Hours from the left navigation menu.
