  • Brief description:
    • Have you ever wanted to manage and display the hours of operation for a business on your Drupal site? There’s a module for that
  • Module name/project name:
  • Brief history
    • How old: created in Jan 2008 by Ozeuss, though recent releases are by John Voskuilen of the Netherlands
    • Versions available: 7.x-1.11 and 8.x-1.17
  • Maintainership
    • Actively maintained, latest release was 3 weeks ago
    • Security coverage
    • Test coverage
    • Documentation: no user guide, but a pretty extensive README
    • Number of open issues: 15 open issues, only 1 of which are bugs against the current branch, though it’s postponed for more info
  • Usage stats:
    • Almost 20,000 sites
  • Module features and usage
    • Previously covered in episode 113, more than 8 years ago, in the “Drupal 6 end of life” episode
    • The module provides a specialized widget to set the hours for each weekday, with the option to have more than one time slot per day
    • You can define exceptions, for example on stat holidays
    • You can also define seasons, with a start and end date, during which the hours are different
    • The module also offers a variety of options for formatting the output:
    • You can show days as ranges, for example Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, 12-hour or 24-hour clocks, and so on
    • Obviously it will show any exceptions or upcoming seasonal hours too
    • It can also show an “open now” or “closed now” indicator
    • It can create schema.org-compliant markup for openingHours, and has integration with the Schema.org Metatag module
    • Office Hours does all this with a new field type, so you could add it to Stores in a Drupal Commerce site, a Locations content type in a site for a bricks-and-mortar chain, or if you just need a single set of hours for the site, you should be able to use it with something like the Config Pages module
    • The README file also includes some suggestions on how to use Office Hours with Views, which can give you a lot of flexibility on where and how to show the information
