Allow additional schedules in addition to Home and Away

It would be great if it was possible to have additional schedules in Tado. I’d like if you were able to add additional schedules, such as “day shift” and “night shift” or “staycation”, so you can easily change schedules to meet your requirements.

For example it I found i needed to change my normal schedule to account for the Christmas holiday, with much more time at home, and using different rooms to my usual work pattern. It was a chore to change the schedule knowing id have to change it back in a week or so.

If it were possible to add several custom schedules to the app, then select the one to be used for “Home”, this would allow an incredible level of flexibility.

  • More complications with various extra schedules will only create confusion when people forget which schedule is the most appropriate for whichever "routine change" is active at any specific time........K.I.S.S.

  • I disagree with the idea that extra schedules would create confusion, but as I see it they would be optional so each to their own. This is considering that you can already have a simple daily schedule, or individual schedules for each day if you want.

    IFTTT, HASS, Node Red could probably all do this without needing work from Tado.

  • I'd love to have multiple schedules to deal with school holidays. For me something straightforward like 'treat the Saturday schedule as the every day schedule' would suffice but I appreciate others have more complex requirements for co-parenting etc
  • Multiple schedules needs to be seen as a basic feature, I fully support the idea

  • I believe you can achieve similar by toggling between the ‘Schedule Days’ option.

    I have my main schedule as a Mon-Fri, Sat, Sun for term time but have switched to Mon-Sun for the holidays, effectively setting that schedule to my normal weekend pattern.

    Completely agree that there should be option for alternative schedules and more sophisticated options, particularly as a lot of people have moved away from such structured working patterns, away from the house every day, in recent years. But the swapping between ‘Schedule Days’ works for us, for now.
