Managing public holiday settings via the HR platform

Available for the following HR plans: Standard, Premium, Platinum
Available for the following user access levels: Admin    

When your employees submit leave through the HR platform, we will factor in the relevant public holiday into their leave requests. The process is automatic and the platform will apply the relevant public holidays to an employee's leave request without you needing to do anything.

You can use the Public Holidays feature to add multiple public holiday calendars to your HR platform or use the customisation option to create your own from scratch. To use this feature, you must first set up your locations. To read details on how to set up a location within the HR platform, please refer to the following article.
