Creating and managing automations for time-based events

    We'd like to automatically set a custom Ticket Schedule for Urgent incidents that come in on the weekends and holidays, and then update the schedule back to the standard Ticket Schedule service hours after the weekend/holiday passes.  For instance, an Urgent ticket opens on a Sunday and the clock only needs to run until 5 pm on Sunday and then pick back up again for normal service hours on Monday (normal service hours extend beyond 5 pm).  We have multiple schedules configured right now to accommodate for the different service hours for weekends and holidays, but we are trying to work through the automations/triggers needed to set the ticket to conditionally use the right schedule.  Can you point us to any best practices for this type of scenario?

    For both Triggers and Automations, have you considered some kind of creation environment to make it easy to learn? The kind of thing that I have in mind, would allow a new starter to use a GUI said interface would be made up of a series of dropdown controls. The first one would be labeled, condition 1. When I interacted with it, I could choose the kind of statement I wanted. There might be an edit field where I could input a value, followed by other controls that would allow me to choose the then and else pieces. Oh and Please ensure that said idea is friendly toward Screen reading technology.
