Creating flexible schedules

Schedule

Business or people not always work from 9 to 5. Even if the business is 9 to 5, there will be constraints required. Those constraints might be lunch time or holidays or different working hours on Saturday. Some of the booking may not based on business hours at all. For example a tennis coaching session might be every 2 weeks on Sundays at 2pm. So ability to create schedule based on needs a powerful feature you can use.
