Make Holiday Calendar a work day

While this goes against the entire idea of a Holiday, many times some our employees have to work on holidays due to our project deadlines or European clients.  They then will take the next available day off to makeup for working the holiday. 

While I know that I can autofill timesheets based on the holiday time/calendar, it becomes quite complicated for the employees to edit the autofill if they have to work and then I'd need to add another Time Off item that they'd use for the makeup day.  

To simplify, I have added a Time Off Type ("Company Holiday") separate from the Holiday Calendar meaning all of our people can log their Holiday time using that single Time Off item regardless if they work the actual holiday or a makeup holiday. 

The only disadvantage I find now is that the actual company holidays do not appear on the Time Off calendar.  However, if I assign the Holiday Calendar and the we try to log the time using "Company Holiday" PTO item, the system shows an error saying the time must to be added to a work day as it already sees this day as a holiday. 

Is there any way around this?  Is there any way to show and event in the Time Off calendar without it being tied to a holiday?

Hi Michael,

As per our discussion on the call, you would like the ability to have the holiday grey out on the timesheet, but provide the ability to the users to manually book the time off on that day else put in the work hours if needed.

I have updated our product management team and will await their response.

Hi Michael,

There isn't a great way to handle this currently. We are currently looking into gaps we have around holidays and how we can make improvements. This is one of the use cases on the list. I'll provide an update once we have an idea on where this sits priority-wise.

Thanks,
Charlene
