Creating a business time span in an individual component

You can create a business time span in some components in Workflow Designer. These components include the Dialog Workflow component and business hours components (such as the Add Business Hours component).

You can also create a business time span in the project's Publishing tab or in the Business TimeSpan Editor.

See Creating a business time span in the publishing tab.

The following steps describe how to set a business time span in a Dialog Workflow component.
