How to create a mandatory holiday



  1. Log on as administrator.
  2. Select Settings from the black ribbon.
  3. Select Offices from the green ribbon. (Example office : Ireland)
  4. Select the TIME OFF button for the relevant office.
  5. Go to the Time off section.
  6. Select the ADD button.


  1. ​Give an appropriate name, example “Christmas Holidays”
  2. Put in the appropriate date (28/12/2016 in this occasion).
  3. Select the tick box, so this day WILL be deducted from your employees Annual leave allowance.
  4. Click submit.
  5. Repeat steps 6 to 10 for any other mandatory office days.

(29th and 30th of December in our example.)


  1. Note if you have more than one office, you will need to create the holidays in each office.
  2. Select Time Off from the black ribbon.
  3. Select Who’s Off from the green ribbon.
  4. Select the appropriate office from the drop down box as appropriate. (Ireland in our example)
  5. Select December and confirm the week is marked in Blue as Annual Leave.
  6. Note if you change the drop down box to all Offices, you will see the Office Holiday is only marked for employees in the “Ireland” office and “Cork” office as I set up holidays for that office also.

  1. Note

The “Ireland” office gives their employees one extra day – usually Christmas Eve.

Given as 23/12/2016 for this example.

This day is created as in steps 2 to 10 above, but leaving the tick box unticked.

So the day off is NOT taken from employees Annual Leave.

It is displayed in green on Who’s off.
