Flex Schedule Guidelines and Documentation


Welcome to the flex schedule forum. Flex schedules are for advanced users that want to have the most efficient schedule type, while also willing to modify some advanced zone settings if there is any adjustment needed.

Our Rachio support team can not help with adjusting your zone characteristics since every yard is unique, but the following resources will guide you along your way.

The following support articles will be able to help regarding any technical explanations, fine tuning, or adjustments.
