Consider your service delivery model when adding sites or groups to an execution schedule.
If you are using a site-based delivery model (for example, you are applying service plans to entire sites), then you should also apply your execution schedules at the site level. Similarly, if you are using a group-based service delivery model, you should apply your execution schedules to groups. When you match up your execution schedules to your service delivery model, it becomes much easier to maintain your execution schedules and to keep track of which execution schedule is being used by the devices in a service plan.
Create a default execution schedule that can be used by most sites or groups. When you create an execution schedule, you select one to use as a default. This is the execution schedule that is applied by default to new sites. For ease of maintenance, the default schedule should be set up so that it can be used by most sites or groups, to minimize the need to override the execution schedule or create a new execution schedule.
Suppress alerts during your execution schedule. If you know that running the execution schedule result in alerts that do not require corrective action, consider suppressing alerts during the execution period. You can suppress the kinds of alerts associated with the activities of the execution schedule, which saves you the time and effort of clearing the alerts later.
