Creating a Blackout Period

You can create a Blackout period to have WhatsUp Gold suspend specific actions during the scheduled period of time. Use this feature to keep from sending a notification to someone who is on vacation, or to keep from sending email when there is no one to receive it.

To create a Blackout period:

  1. Access the Action Builder Wizard.
  2. Within this wizard, click the Blackout period button.
  3. On the Weekly Blackout Schedule dialog, set the times you want the blackout to occur. The schedule that is set is repeated weekly.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Complete the wizard.
