PPO allows for specifying public holidays to ensure that these days are taken into account when determining capacity for resource planning and time entries.
A public holiday will be marked in red on the calendar control that's used to capture dates in all date type fields (today is marked in blue).
South African public holidays are pre-populated for all instances as soon as the public holidays for the following year become available. Clients outside of South Africa will have to add their public holidays manually, as detailed in this article.
Viewing a list of public holidays
To view a list of the Public Holidays the PPO Administrator must have access to the Administration Menu and Public Holidays.
When selecting the Holidays option on the filter control, you are able to use either the Next 12 months filter (to show holidays from today for the next 12 months) or This Year (which will show the calendar year's public holidays).
You also have the ability to either select a Day of the Week, Month or Year.
Adding a public holiday
To add a public holiday select the Add button:
Then select the date you wish to add as a public holiday from the calendar control function.
Deleting a public holiday
To delete a public holiday, click on the holiday you want to delete from the Public Holiday List page.
A Delete button will be available on the Public Holiday View page. Click on the Delete button to delete the public holiday.
The date will no longer appear as a public holiday on the calendar control functions.
