This guide allows you to set up your calendar so it contains all the information you need to help with employees booking time off and making them aware of upcoming public holidays or days they cannot book off.
General calendar settings
Settings that can be changed here relate to the layout of the calendar and whether certain events such as birthdays or long-term leave, appear in it.
Public Holiday Groups
Public Holiday Groups help ensure employees who are eligible for public holidays have them correctly assigned to them.
Sometimes you may need multiple public holiday groups due to:
Employees working in different countries
Employees using different countries
You can create public holiday groups and assign employees to them.
Import public holidays
You can add a public holiday to your calendar manually if you click Add public holiday. Alternatively you can import public holidays into your calendar.
Custom working days
Establish dates that normally would be considered a non-working day, but for your company, or for specific employees, it needs to be a considered working day.
Create Blackout dates
Blackout dates are days which your employees won't be allowed to book any leave on.
