Public Holidays

In the 2020.11.4 release we added the ability to render public holidays on the Schedule. Public holidays are region specific and can be selected from 250 countries and 3680 states and provinces.

Public holidays can currently only be shown on the calendar and grid views, however we are planning on adding them to the timeline views in an upcoming update.


Public holidays are enabled and configured at an individual Schedule level as this allows for maximum flexibility for customers who have separate schedules for offices in different regions.

For example, if you have offices (& schedules created) in Sydney and Melbourne, each schedule can be configured to display the public holidays pertaining to that region.
