Description

Holidays are days when employees aren't expected to work. Usually, holidays are nationally recognized, paid days off for all employees. However holidays can also be company specific.

Visma Severa supports holidays when organization has purchased either Advanced time tracking add-on or Activity management add-on. Holidays are used for calculating flextime of employees and they are visible in the mini calendar on work hours page. Holidays can be entered for various countries and for the period of many years.

When advanced time tracking add-on is in used holidays are also used to calculate employee's work hour balance.
