Once an event is in APPROVED status in Event Scheduler, your HVAC will automatically engage and disengage using the Set-up/Tear-down times on the event + ramp time in FACILITeSPACE.
However, if the event does not have a setup and end teardown time, then eSPACE will use the start time/end time of the event plus ramp time in FACILITeSPACE.
The only EXCEPTION is if you have Override times entered on the event details page (see example below). They will be looked at instead of the event start/end time or the event setup/end teardown times.
- For example, if you have an approved event with a Setup time at 6:30 AM but the actual event Start time is not until 3 PM, you may not want the HVAC engaging at 6:30 AM. So, you can choose an override time that would start the HVAC at Noon to start cooling the space prior to the event start time.
You also have the option here to TURN OFF the HVAC for the event. Simply check the box that says "TURN OFF HVAC FOR THIS EVENT".
