When an e-days system is first created, an onboarding staff member will have added the first year of public holidays for the appropriate countries in your system. 

While the system is not able to automatically populate public holidays for future years, we have developed a tool to quickly import public holidays for future years.

Assigning a Country to a Public Holiday Group:

To assign a country to a public holiday group, you will need to follow the below steps.

  • Navigate to Admin Control Panel > Global > Public Holiday Setup
  • Click the Edit button against the Public Holiday Group
  • Assign a country to the group by populating the Country field*
  • Click on the Save button to save the country assignment.

*If the country you are looking for is not present in the country listing, an import will not be possible via the public holiday feed.

Importing Public Holidays via the Import Feed:

Before performing this task, you should ensure that you have assigned countries to the public holiday groups you wish to import into.

  • Navigate to Admin Control Panel > Global > Public Holiday Setup
  • Click on the Import Public Holidays button
  • Select the Countries and the Years you wish to import into the system*
  • Click the Search button
  • Check the list of dates that are generated are what you’d like added to e-days**
  • If satisfied with the produced results, click the Save button

*If you search for a country that is not assigned to any public holiday group in your system, an option will be made available to assign that country’s public holidays to an existing group or create a new group to house those public holiday dates.

**The results from the public holiday feed are generated from a third-party service. You should review the generated list thoroughly before saving the selected dates.

When appending dates to a public holiday group listing, e-days will update the calendar for all users who have the affected public holiday group applied.
