Is there a global settings for session times that I can toggle for different session times and be applied to all charts? Currently, I need to manually change the session times under chart settings for each chart in the chartbook and this can be very a labor intensive process.

You can set the Session Times globally for a particular symbol and then apply them to a chart.

Here are the specific instructions:

I am looking for multiple session times that I can configure and toggle. For example, one session can have start and end time: 18:00:00-17:00 and another session start and time can be 00:00:00-23:59:59. I would like to toggle between these 2 sessions for the same symbol.

Currently, I need to manually changed each individual chart for each chartbook.

This is not supported. You really just need to use different charts with the different Session Times.

And that is most efficient anyway because the charts do not have to be reloaded, you can just switch between them.

someone please confirm if I understand global symbol session times correctly.

if I have existing chartbooks I will need to apply each chart with the global settings. I cannot globally apply the session times to all chartbooks at once.

if I check

Global Settings >> Symbol Settings >> Apply Intraday Session Times to Intraday Chart

then new charts opened will have those global symbol session times automatically applied? including whether or not the use evening session in the chart settings is checked? (based upon the global symbol use evening session settings value)?
