Manage bank holidays

Create bank holiday calendars and define bank holidays to indicate to agents which dates that are bank holidays. The bank holiday dates are highlighted in red in the schedule views (week, month, preferences and availability views) in MyTime and in the day view in the Mobile app.

Create one or several bank holiday calendars and assign them per site.

Set up a process to regularly review the calendars and add future bank holidays.

NOTE   The defined bank holidays are highlighted in the agents' schedule views. They will not affect any other functionality.
