How do I show a custom hour description on the schedule?

Sometimes you may want to explain why an hour is closed on the schedule; for example, Mass is taking place, or there's a funeral or a school event, or the chapel is being cleaned.

Or, perhaps an hour on the schedule is shorter than a full hour (which is not something you can change), and you want to display when it starts. For example, on a 9 AM hour, you might want to show, "Starts at 9:15."

Or, maybe you have specific hours where the committed adorers want to be alone, or they are willing to share the space with others, or the hour is managed by a group, or you desperately need adorers in a range of hours, and you need a way to communicate that on the schedule.

You could communicate all of that with the sitewide message, and for lengthier explanations, that's still the best solution.

Or, you can add a title directly to the hour! To do that, hover over the hour, click the Edit button, and then enter custom text in the Title field.

Add a custom title on the hour form

You can also override this per date. For example, if you usually don't display a title for a given hour week to week, but you need to show a title for the next couple of weeks, you can customize the settings for that hour on the particular dates to add a custom title.

Hour titles also appear on the Dashboard page next to each commitment's date.

If you are using the Adoration Check-in Kiosk, the hour titles appear beneath each hour's date and time.
