I can't set my business hours properly, getting CMN-101 error

If you are getting a CMN-101 error when trying to update a business' office hours via the API, for example:

 "errors": [{ 
     "errorCode": "CMN-101",
     "message": "Parameter [] value is invalid.", 
     "parameterName": "" 

Then the most likely reason is because the times being input via the API are not correct. The common way this error is triggered is when a developer is trying to specify that their business is open for an entire 24-hour period, i.e. my business is open all day long on Fridays. Intuitively a developer might specify the following in this circumstance:

  • From time: 00:00

  • To time: 24:00

However, as silly as it may seem at first, technically the time "24:00" doesn't actually exist. Right? Think about this progression of time...

  • March 23, 2023, 23:58

  • March 23, 2023, 23:59 - one minute later

  • March 24, 2023, 00:00 - one minute later and the next day

So the fix is therefore quite simple. Set the from and to times as follows:

  • From time: 00:00

  • To time: 23:59

And don't worry, our UI will report this as open all day long just as you most likely would prefer.
