Add Season


Let's say you have a PM that only needs to be performed during the cold winter months.  Perhaps it's a school bus that only needs a regular service only during the school year (and not over summer break).  You can create specific seasons during which you perform a PM.   This can be customized to your unique maintenance needs:

  • Traditional calendar seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter)
  • Event seasons (Summer break, Busy Season, Harvest)
  • Seasonal business cycles (Ski Season, Allergy season, Football season)

Using the PM Schedule Rules + Add Season option allows you to:

  • Create a custom season
  • Name the start date
  • Name the end date

PM's with a Season attached will only occur during that time period.  Once the time period has ended, the PM will be suspended, until the season comes up again.  



  1. Log into your ManagerPlus account and click the Settings icon on the side ribbon
  2. Once you have clicked the Settings icon, you’ll click the Maintenance Plans button, found in the Libraries section
  3. Open the desired Maintenance Plan 
  4. Open one of the PMs in that Maintenance Plan
  5. Under Schedule Rules, select Create New Rule


  1. Create your rule, then select + Add Season


  1. Select a Season.  If  the desired Season does not appear, select   New  
  2. Fill out:
    • Season ID (name of your desired season)
    • Start Month / Day
    • End Month / Day


  1. Select   Save  

Doing this will cause the PM to only occur between the start and end days of your selected season.  

NOTE:  Seasons cannot be edited, once they are in use by any PM.  If a different season period is needed, it will need to be newly created.
