To define a set of time constraints for situations that include a series of repetitive patterns, each with a different time coverage, you can define ordinal schedules and then apply them to entities.

What you should know

Ordinal schedules are ideal for events that repeat. You can define as many dates as necessary within a single schedule entity.


  1. Open the System task, and click the Schedules view.
  2. Click Schedule (), type a name for the schedule, and then press ENTER.
  3. In the Identity tab, enter basic properties of the schedule, and then click Apply.
  4. Click the Properties tab.
  5. From the Date coverage drop-down list, select Ordinal, and then click Add an item ().
  6. Select a day and a month.
  7. From the Time coverage drop-down list, select All day, Range, Daytime, or Nighttime (see Defining twilight schedules for information on daytime and nighttime time coverages).
  8. Click OK and then click Apply.


You can configure something similar to the Weekly pattern using the Ordinal pattern. The following example shows a schedule that cover the daytime of every Monday of the year.
