Spaces: Add hours exception from the Spaces availability grid

In this article

Admin users can quickly add hours exceptions for the current category when viewing the Booking Grid & Availability tab for a space category. This provides a convenient way to update a category's hours on the fly, which can come in handy during unexpected closings or curtailments.


To add hours exceptions:

  1. Log into LibCal and click on Spaces in the navigation bar.
  2. Use the Location dropdown at the top of the page to select the location containing the spaces for which you want to add an exception.
  3. Click on the Booking Grid & Availability tab.
  4. Use the filters to select spaces by Category, Zone, or other options; and click the Go button to load the booking grid.
  5. Click on the Add Booking button and select Add Hours Exception from the dropdown (only Admin users will see this option).
    • If the category is using custom hours, select a Date of ExceptionException Type, and click the Add New Exception button. Learn more...
    • If the category is linked to the Hours module, you will be prompted to add a new exception to the connected library or department's hours. Keep in mind that the exception you add here will affect all Hours widgets for that library or department, as well. Learn more about Hours module exceptions...
