1. Create Different Price Groups

Before creating a schedule, it is important to create price groups, which you will use while creating schedules for charge point accessibility and pricing.

Here is a guide about how to create private price groups and assign to members.

Here is a guide on how to create public prices and allocate to charge points.

Here is a guide how to add flexible fees on the price groups.

2. Click on "Schedules"

3. Add Schedule click on "New"

Click on add NEW

4. Create Schedule

Here the table will open, which will be used to create schedules.

Schedule Table

Main Price and Visibility

On the top of the window you will need to enter the name of the schedule and select the fallback price group. This will be the price that will be applied while user are charging outside scheduled periods of time. Next step will be to indicate the charge point visibility and the time zones in which the site is located.

Add schedule name and fallback price

Scheduled Price and Visibility

The next step would be add the schedule of the pricing and visibility you wish charge points to have outside the time frame they follow the fallback pricing and main visibility.

schedule example

You can have as many periods as you wish, also within the same day, by clicking on "Add another period". It can also differentiate the price group, timeframe and of course visibility during the same day. Once you add all the information for the schedule click on "Save".

IMPORTANT! Keep in mind that if you are making a schedule for a roaming charge point, when the roaming charge is made your revenue will be the fallback price group chosen. Unfortunately roaming feature cannot handle price changes on the charge points.

6. Applying Schedule to the Charge Points

Once you have saved the schedule it will appear in the schedules section. In order to apply it to the charge points click on the 3 dots on the right side of the schedule.Here the actions section will open, go ahead and click on "Apply to charge points".

You can also apply schedule to specific charge points, if not all the charge points on the site should follow the same scheduling and pricing.

Select specific charge points

You can also apply the schedule to the whole site at one only with one click. You can do so by clicking on "Swap to sites". If you have more than one site in the team you can select only specific one.  Once selected the charge points to which you want to apply schedule click on "Save".

Swap to sites, select site, save all the changes

7. Editing the Schedule
