Public holidays differ from country to country, and even within states in a country. This feature is useful especially for remote teams working in different countries whose national holidays differ within the team.
Create Public Holidays group
To create a new Public Holiday Group for your employees, select Company > Company Profile from the left menu.
Under Public Holidays, click on the "+" button to create a new group.
This opens a pop-up, giving users the option to select the Country from the list and to create a name for the Public Holidays group.
To clone an existing holiday group (eg. useful for creating public holidays for the corresponding year for the same country), click the Clone button.
Once the new Public Holiday group is created, click on the Add new Holiday button at the bottom, to enter in the names of the holidays and the dates for which they fall on.
You may delete the previously created holiday entries by clicking on the delete button.
This feature may also be used to create company-specific holidays.
