How do I open adoration for a monthly schedule (like First Fridays)?

By default, your adoration schedule assumes that an open hour is open every week (e.g., "Every Friday at 9-10am").

However, if you need to adjust your schedule to open certain hours on a monthly basis, you can do that, too! Here's how.

Change a single hour

Login as an administrator and visit your Schedule page. Hover your mouse over the hour on your schedule which you want to change, and click "Edit" in the popover that appears.

Change the "General availability" of this hour to "Monthly", select a monthly option, and then click "Save".

Choose "Monthly" and select a monthly option

For example, if you choose "Every 1st Friday at 6-7pm", then this hour will be open on First Fridays and closed the remaining Fridays of the month. (Don't fret—you can easily override a specific Friday if you need to open or close adoration due to special circumstances.)

Change multiple hours

Login as an administrator and visit your Schedule page. Click "Edit Schedule" to enter bulk edit mode. Select the hours you want to change and then click "Bulk Edit Selected Hours".

The default action is "Open adoration hours". Under "Which dates?", select "Once per month" to expose additional monthly options. Select an option and preview which dates will be affected.

Clicking "Save" will change the schedule for these hours to just the monthly option (e.g. "Every 1st Friday at 12-1am").

Monthly commitments

Normally, when adorers make a new adoration commitment, their commitment frequency will default to "Weekly". If you have a monthly adoration schedule, you'll want to enable the "Monthly" commitment frequency at Admin » Settings » Schedule.

After making that change, when an adorer clicks on a monthly hour on your schedule, their commitment frequency will default to "Monthly".
