Use the Service Schedule Activity form to schedule a service activity

Use this form to search for an available time for a service activity. You can either search for an open time using search criteria that, at a minimum, includes selecting a service, or you can define a more complex set of criteria. You can also create a service activity without checking for conflicts in the scheduled service. The service activity appears as a color block on the service calendar.


You can’t create a recurring service activity. Individual activities are recommended.
