Public holidays

PPO allows for the storing of public holidays to ensure that these days are taken into account when planning is done and resources booked. Public holidays are also taken into account on utilisation reports.

A public holiday will be marked in red on the calendar control function used to capture dates in all date type fields (today is marked in orange).

South African public holidays are pre-booked for all instances as soon as the public holidays for the following year become available.

Clients outside of South Africa will be required to add their public holidays manually, as detailed in this article.

Adding a public holiday

To add a public holiday manually the PPO Administrator must have access to the Administration menu item and the Public Holidays icon.
