I have the Pentair intellicenter with a schedule setup to run the pool daily from 9-3. It was going to be a nice weekend so I decided to heat the pool up to enjoy it this weekend and I started around 4PM yesterday. When my schedule kicked in today it was set for heater off since that's how I normally run it but I found the schedule item overrides the manual setting. Is there anyway to get around this or to tell the schedule not to run for just today without changing a bunch of settings?

Report what you found when you can so others will learn.

I did a better more thorough search.... and found this thread Schedules/Manual OP Priority and realized my "MANUAL OP PRIORITY" was set to off which is default so I turned it on and at least was able to set my heater off during the schedule and manually turn it on but we'll see what happens at the end of my schedule.

Urgh... This Pentair software kind of sucks and is frustrating.... Apparently I thought it was off in my schedule but it wasn't and when I did turn it off I couldn't turn the heater on manually so I guess I didn't solve it

Intellicenter is frustrating...my phone app won't save schedule changes, but if I do it on my laptop it will save it. Makes no sense as other changes work fine on my phone app, like pump speed, heat temp, etc.

I am not experiencing that same issue on my iOS device at the present time but I have experienced the same issue in the past. I was able to change (and save) an existing schedule with no problem.
I did that while connecting both "locally" and via the IntelliCenter servers on my iPhone.

Usually if you just wait a couple of hours and try again, you may find that it will work just fine.

All I can say is that in my experiences, the Pentair web-client as well as the mobile apps are poor quality, not user friendly, "buggy" and not very reliable and YES, they are very frustrating. That is why I have went to the trouble and expense to find an alternate and much more reliable (and user friendly) means of communicating with the IntelliCenter panel. However, this method that I use is certainly not for everyone as it requires additional IT hardware and software.

My only advice to most "average" or "typical" IntelliCenter users when they experience these type of problems with the web-client and the mobile apps are to contact Pentair Tech Support.
Maybe if they receive enough complaints/issues "maybe" they might take some corrective action with regards to their server/web-client issues but I for one will NOT be holding my breath.
