Timesheet Mobile is deployed with a set of public holidays that are country specific and apply to all workers - the global option. This list can be modified, and additional holidays can be added to the list. A per worker option can be selected, and then, holidays can be assigned on a per worker basis. This is useful when an organization has workers that span states or countries with different holidays.
Scheduling Global Holidays
Holidays can be scheduled like other shifts, and the option is found on the scheduling page, under the "Add" button in the top right-hand corner. By clicking on the drop down option, "Add Public Holidays", holidays can be viewed and modified.
The list of public holidays that come standard with your version of Timesheet Mobile can be seen here.
If needed, these holidays can be modified and more holidays can be added using the "Add More" button, as seen below.
After clicking, "Add More" holidays, a new line at the bottom of the list will allow you to name the new holiday and set its date.
If this is a paid holiday, check the "Paid?" checkbox. Once that is checked, the payroll type and hours can be entered. For example, it could be paid by salary or hourly. Either way, the hours for the holiday can be entered. If it is a whole day holiday, which most are, then enter the hours of a normal working day.
Note: Using Holiday Pay will Deduct from Accrued Time
Scheduling Per Worker Holidays
To switch from the standard global option to the per worker setting, go to Settings->Schedule Settings and set "Public Holiday" to "Per Worker".
Holidays per worker can now be added, modified and deleted from the worker details panel.
If there is a group of employees that all share the same holidays, then they can be set together as a group using the batch update mechanism. Simply, click on each employee in the employee list who share the same holidays, then click on the blue "Update" button. From the drop down list, select "Paid Holiday" and the list of holidays is there to modify, add, or delete.
