Local Guide Best practice: Entering Opening hours

[This is one of a series of articles originally published on Local Guides Connect]

Entering opening hours correctly can be quite challenging the first time you do it, especially if the shop has different opening hours on different days or is closed for lunch on some days and not on others. The main thing you need to keep in mind is that you need to go through an ‘Add hours’ routine for each unique period of uninterrupted hours that the business is open – which can be just for 1 day of the week or for multiple days of the week. A specific example will no doubt make this complex sounding concept more clear. Let’s say a shop is opened on Monday and Tuesday from 9:00 to 12:00 and from 14:00 to 18:00, then on Wednesday from 9:00 to 13:30 and finally on Saturday from 9:00 to 18:00. To enter these opening hours, you will need to go through the ‘Add hours’ routine 4 times:

  1. select Monday and Tuesday from the list of week days, then select ‘9’ and ’00’ in the ‘Open time’ screen and then ’12’ and ’00’ in the ‘Close time’ screen
  2. once more select Monday and Tuesday from the list of week days, then select ’14’ and ’00’ in the ‘Open time’ screen and ’18’ and ’00’ in the ‘Close time’ screen
  3. Select Wednesday from the list of week days, then select ‘9’ and ’00’ in the ‘Open time’ screen and ’13’ and ’30’ in the ‘Close time’ screen
  4. select Satuday from the list of week days, then select ‘9’ and ’00’ in the ‘Open time’ screen and ’18’ and ’00’ in the ‘Close time’ screen
