Pro-tip: this is a good way to check that your public holiday settings are configured correctly.

Entering additional public holiday dates

Typically these are any local public holidays such as show days. We recommend adding this into your specific location/s settings (Workforce > Teams > Edit Location > Show Advanced Options > Public Holiday Setup):

If you have locations in more than one public holiday regions

Accounts with multiple locations and multiple public holiday regions can set location specific public holidays in the location settings (Workforce > Teams > Edit Location > Advanced Options):
