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 blue).


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 and Public Holidays.


Click on Public Holidays from the Administration menu to view a list of all the public holidays already loaded on the instance.


To add a public holiday, click on the Add button. Then select the date you wish to add as a public holiday from the calendar control function.


This day will then be marked as red for all calendar control functions, indicating it as a public holiday.


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.
