I'm using the Wiser app on Android, and have created schedules for each of my rooms based on our routines.
When my partner is occasionally out of the house I've created a Moment for her 'office', that keeps the room at 16C as opposed to heating it to 18C during 9-5 hours as per the schedule.
1) There's nothing visual to tell you that a Moment is active, apart from identifying the change in temps or seeing that the 'Cancel all overrides' button is lit (though this could be from manually adjusting a room temp also, so not just an active Moment).
2) I tapped the Moment button this morning at 8.30am, knowing that she was out for the day and the office wouldn't need heating from 9am. Come 9am, the office started to heat to 18 as per the schedule, seemingly ignoring the fact I'd activated the Moment. I imagine this is because the schedule had tripped over to a new block of time from 9am? But I had to tap the Moment button again to activate when I realised it wasn't active around 9.15am.
Are visual indicators for Moments in the pipeline, and is there a remedy to point 2 above (or a better, intuitive, way of doing this override?) please?

As I understand it, any user-created moments are only active up until the next schedule event.
I think they should add this as an option in the moment - have a tick box to make the moment override any schedule. Of course, then you'd have to remember to turn the moment off again.

The orange symbol shows activity, so it heats up.
your first point is an improvement, thanks for that-.
No. 2the timepan also runs in the background, both are not possible
A moment is only started at that moment but schedule still continues as planned.
The mode absent stops everything, then only the moment works.

Sorry - accidentally marked BenB's post as a 'solution'.
BenB is correct in that Moments are only active up until the next schedule event.
It would be better to have the option to turn Moments permanently on, and decide when to turn off yourself. Additionally, a visual toggle state on the Moment button itself is needed, so at any time I can look across my Moment buttons, and see which are turned on (perhaps indicated by a tick?).

Agree a visual indication would be a big improvement. But it should also have a toggle operation. It's counter-intuitive that a binary operation (off -> on) requires a complex, multi-step undo operation.
