After work hours are set, you can block off time on your schedule with personal appointments.  You can set repeating personal appointments to block off time for recurring events like lunch or breaks, or to regularly split work days/shifts.

You can also use repeating personal appointments to take time off that is longer than a single or a few days.

Blocking out lunches or breaks

You can use repeating personal appointments to set regularly occurring lunch and/or break times on your schedule to make yourself unavailable during those times.

Splitting work days / shifts

Similar to blocking out time for lunch, if you work days where you have two (or more) blocks of availability, you can split your work day with a personal appointment.

You can read more on how to split your work day here.

Blocking out long-term time off

You can use repeating personal appointments for time off longer than one or two days.  This includes vacations / holidays, extended travel, maternity or paternity leave, sabbaticals, or other extended leaves of absence.
