One of the ‘problem areas’ in our system has historically been public holidays. Users have had to remember to go and configure their public holidays before things like leave estimates and award pay conditions would work. We provided an import function from Enrico however this was a manual step and it imported a bunch of regional public holidays which did not apply state-wide.
From now on, it is no longer necessary to set up your public holidays manually (although you can definitely customise them if you need to). The system will provide an up to date set of State and Federal public holidays in each business, automatically.
All public holidays that have been automatically created by our system will be denoted by the icon in the top right corner.
Specific public holidays can be customised and turned off, if necessary. To mark a date as ‘not a public holiday’, simply un-tick all of the states and click Save.
The date will now show with a strike-through to indicate that it is no longer considered as a public holiday.
Additionally, custom public holidays such as local/regional and company authorised (e.g. picnic days) public holidays may still be created as has always been possible.
This automated public holiday management means that there is one less step involved when setting up a new business, meaning that you can be up and running faster than ever.
