You create daily or monthly periods for maintenance timing records using the calendar period editor. The usual way to open the editor is to start in the Periods section of a maintenance timing record, then click New Calendar Period.

The calendar period editor window contains the following:

Schedule: A read-only field giving the name of the maintenance timing record that will contain this daily period.

Interval: The number of calendar units in the period. For example, if you enter 30, the work should be done every 30 calendar units.

Calendar Unit: Choose either Days or Months for the interval calendar unit.

Save & New: Saves the current record and sets up the window for you to enter a new record. Fields in the new record will be blank or set to default values.

Save: Saves the current record. The editor window stays open in case you want to make more changes to the same record.

Save & Close: Saves the current record and closes the editor window.

Cancel: Closes the window without saving any changes you've made to the record since the last time you saved. When you Save the record, the Cancel button changes to Close, indicating that you can safely close the window without losing any changes.

Close: Closes the window. This button only appears after you've saved changes with Save or before you've entered any data at all. Otherwise, the button is labeled Cancel.
