To inactivate or suspend a schedule, you'll first need to click on the Scheduler Module and choose "All Schedules" or the specific schedule you want to inactivate or suspend.
First Red Circle in the screenshot is Suspending a Machine within a Schedule. Second circle around 'Suspend' is suspending the entire schedule.
Inactivating a schedule is used when you no longer need or want to use that schedule. For example, you replaced a machine with a different make/model, and will now use a new schedule for that machine. You will still be able to close any dispatches from the inactive schedule.
Suspending a schedule is used for example; over a holiday when you want to halt the schedule for any amount of time and will resume the schedule when you are back from shutdown. You do have to select to resume the schedule when you return though. It also suspends ALL schedules unless you choose otherwise. To choose specific schedules, you can select a checkbox next to the schedule you wish to suspend. Schedules can only be adjusted in full day increments from the time they are suspended and resumed. Under Schedule Settings you will find other options available to you. You can see from the screenshot below, that the default "When Resuming a Suspended Schedule, Increment the Schedule Dates by How Many Days the Schedule was Suspended" is checked. This will adjust the scheduled date by however many days you have been suspended. If you want to be able to edit the schedule dates after resuming, you must uncheck the box.
If you open a specific schedule and suspend a whole schedule, it will not allow you to resume/suspend when using the suspend/resume functionality on the schedule list screen. This is even if the schedule is in the filtered list. This only resumes the machines and not the schedules themselves as it can be searched by machine. Therefore if you suspend a specific machine within the schedule, you must resume the machine individually.
