Trail is brilliant for managing repeat processes with minimal effort. Set your weekly business hours, schedule your tasks and off you go.

While sites can be closed on certain days — eg. every Sunday — it’s been harder to close on specific dates.

Managers & Admins will find new options on the Site Settings page to close any site on any date. Here’s how it works:

  • Tasks won’t be scheduled and the date will be marked as closed for future reference.
  • A banner will show at the top of the Trail marking that day as closed.
  • Currently, you can’t adjust today or tomorrow.
  • A site won’t receive a score for any day that it is closed and will show as a blank on the dashboard.

Some dates you may want to schedule:

  • 🎄 Bank holidays & special dates
  • 🛑 Refurbishments or incidents
  • 🚧 Building works & road closures
  • 🎪 Events & festivals (just close every day except the ones you need)

Find out more in the help centre article or head to the Sites page to get set up.
