What is a Public Holiday? 


Appogee HR provides configuration for Public Holidays by configuring Public Holiday Profiles. You can have more than one Public Holiday profile set up for your organisation and these are applied to users through their Leave Profile. 


Public Holidays are treated as non-working days in the system and are not deducted from an employee's allowance if a request is made on or across that day. Administrators can configure their own Public Holidays or you can import defaults supplied by Appogee HR or from an iCal file of holidays which may be found on the Internet. 


There are 3 types of public holiday:

1. Full day - occupy the full working day

2. Morning - occupy only the morning session

3. Afternoon - occupy only the afternoon session

Importing a Public Holiday


Some default Public Holidays are provided by Appogee HR, to import these, you will need to create a Public Holiday Profile. 


Go to Process Config > Public Holidays.



Click the Create button in the top right corner.



A dialog box will open, type in the name of your Public Holiday Profile, then click Create Profile. 



Click on the name of the created Public Holiday profile. The new Public Profile will then open and a calendar of the year will be shown without any Public Holidays. Click on the Import button.



Importing using Appogee Defaults


Select a country from the dropdown.  There is an extensive list of popular defaults listed - these are all full days.



Once a country has been selected to import click Next and you can then check and confirm the dates to import. Once you are happy with the selection, click the Import Selected or Import All button. The imported Public Holidays will then be displayed on the calendar. 





Importing using iCal


Either enter the URL of your iCal calendar file or upload this from your computer using the Browse button. 


Click Next and you can then check and confirm the dates to import. Once you are happy with the selection, click the Import Selected or Import All button. The imported Public Holidays will then be displayed on the calendar. 




Not all Public Holidays are available via the import feature. Those that are provided are only provided as an aid. We highly recommend that you modify and update as needed to suit your organisation. It is the Administrator's responsibility to ensure that they are correct before users create requests spanning Public Holidays. 



PLEASE NOTE: When public holidays have been added, they will only apply to future requests. Requests made prior to the addition of public holidays will not be amended to include the public holiday. We recommend cancelling these old requests and re-entering them should you wish for the new changes to be applied to the requests.

Select the date of the Public Holiday and give it a name, specify if it is a half day or full day then click Create Public Holiday.
