Setting public holidays


To make things simpler, start with little things. The LeaveBoard HR system automatically adds the public holidays to your employees' attendance calendar.

How to add public holidays to my office in LeaveBoard?

Here are the steps to setup your public holidays:

  1. From the Menu, select Employees.
  2. From the Employees, select the Offices tab.
  3. Select the Office in which you would like to setup the public holidays.
  4. Click on Import Public Holidays.
  5. Select the Country and Year.

The public holidays will appear in the calendars of the employees working in this office. Here is how to activate this.


What if my company has offices across multiple countries?

If you have employees in multiple countries or states that have different public holidays, please create more offices, add the public holidays for each one of the offices (i.e., New York, California, London, Toronto), and then associate the employees in those locations with these offices.


How to add a single public holiday or event in LeaveBoard?

Additionally, you can add a single bank holiday or company event following the same steps:

  1. From the Menu, select Employees.
  2. From the Employees, select the Offices tab.
  3. Select the Office in which you would like to add a specific company event or holiday.
  4. Click on + Add Public Holiday or Event.
  5. Add the Name and select the Date.
  6. Click on the Add button.

How to change the date of an existing public holiday?

It happens that the date of a public holiday in our database is incorrect, and needs to be changed. To do that just delete the wrong public holiday entry by clicking on the icon, and then click on + Add Public Holiday or Event link, select the date needed, add the name, and click Add.

Note: You need to add the public holidays every year. Importing the public holidays for this year will populate the employees' calendar for the actual year, however for next year please repeat the procedure and select the next year.
