When running tests, or performing Lab Management maintenance tasks on host machines, the resources needed for these tasks must be available, and must fall within the project and license limits. The Testing > Timeslots module enables you to reserve resources in advance to ensure that the required resources are available when you are ready to run tests.

Timeslots are a key component in ALM's Continuous Delivery solution. They facilitate an automated, end-to-end deployment and testing framework that makes application development more efficient, reliable, and quick. For details about how timeslots can be used as part of this process, see Deploy and test your application in ALM.

Note: The Timeslots module is available for projects that have the ALM Lab extension enabled.
