How to add Opening Hours to a POI

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fd5d5bec0c8>

You are very welcome to add opening hours to your POIs!

Opening hours can be used in a filter, where a user wants only to show POIs right open now. (e.g. like on osm24.eu )

However, as opening hours can be very complex (imagine the third last Tuesday in Months Apr-Sep.) we will use the Scheme used by OpenStreetMap. It looks simple (e.g. “Mo-Fr 08:00-15:00”), but is very powerful.

I’ve stumbled upon a new site for creating opening_hours easy:

http://github.pavie.info/yohours/?oh=Tu%2003:00-09:45

Select ranges graphically in the calendar, then copy the generated string into the opening_hours tag in OSM :smile:
Public and school holidays, as well as multiple month ranges supported.

some time we will have to integrate this tool into our iD^^
