Restricting call/SMS hours

Admins can define the time frame when an extension or user CANNOT make or accept calls and SMS. The restricted hours follow the When a call is not answered user call handling setting. If this setting is enabled, outbound and inbound emergency calls and SMS will still be allowed.

Note: SMS settings only apply to users.
