The working hours feature on the Chalkboard app, also known as ‘out of hours’, ensures that you receive all the calls, messages and notifications when you need them most, whilst outside of those hours, you won’t be disturbed.
Work/life balance is important and we know that when you’re using one device with multiple numbers, it can be harder to switch off. Our working hours feature gives you the flexibility to set what times you’re working and when you’re not available.
It comes with built-in customisable out-of-hours voicemail and auto-reply features so that you can tailor your response to customers that try to reach you when business is closed, ensuring that you don’t miss a thing.

You can take a free trial of Chalkboard and discover all of our great features, without any commitment or risk.
It's the easy way for your team to text and call together without the hassle and complexity of a phone system!
Once you have downloaded the Chalkboard app, simply head to Settings (cog icon at top right), click ‘Manage workspace’, tap ‘Phone numbers’ (and select the phone number that you want to set working hours on), select ‘Working hours’ and tap on the main feature toggle to switch it on.
Now you just need to set your working hours – we’ve pre-set Monday to Friday (09:00 - 17:00) as a potential working week for you but we know that might not be the case, so you can simply toggle on the days you’re working and toggle off the rest!
Select a working day that’s toggled on and hit Edit - you’ll be able to set the times you’re working and if relevant, you can apply these working hours to all active days.
No problem! You can set every day of the week to a different start and end time and Chalkboard will know when you’re working and when you’re not. We’ve got your back!
If you have set your working hours in the Chalkboard app and somebody calls your work number outside of those hours, you won’t receive a notification. Instead, the caller will hear your out-of-hours voicemail message and, if you have set an out-of-hours auto-reply, will receive a message after they end the call.
The customisable out-of-hours voicemail and auto-reply features allow you to tailor your response to customers that try to reach you when business is closed so you don’t miss a thing.
Yes, both features work smoothly together, to ensure that notifications are silenced after working hours are over. All callers will hear your custom out-of-hours voicemail and will then receive a follow up with an auto reply that lets your customers know you’re not in work.
Yes. Chalkboard’s working hours feature allows you to record and save a customised ‘out of hours’ voicemail message.
