For example, a date note would be useful if you want to explicitly indicate a holiday week on the schedule. Here's how you add a Date Note to your schedule:
- Select a Date for your note
- Select Style, or color
- Enter Date Note content under Message
- Click Save
Choose to publish your schedule immediately OR keep it unpublished until it is finalized. When you publish your schedule, it will be visible on your public-facing site.
