Business hours help organizations set the working time of support teams of different locations and different time zones which makes it easy to calculate the time related to cases.
An organization can have many different business hours for different time, teams and locations.

The calculation of age over time depends on the business hours also, if selected.
These define that after how much time the case should escalate and to whom the case should be reassigned. Also, we can specify to whom the notification email should be sent of its escalation with respective email templates.
