Productive allows you to mark certain days of the year as a holiday which means they will be treated as non-working days.
This is very useful because:
- You’ll have accurate capacity information which means you’ll know exactly how many non-working days there were in a month. Not just weekends as it was until now, but also Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years, etc.
- Holidays are marked in all of the calendars throughout Productive (time reports, time tracking, etc.)
Right off the bat, when you sign up to Productive we will automatically populate holidays based on your account locale. This way we ensure your national holidays are instantly added to your account.
To add new Holidays manually, go to your account Settings > Scheduling
Select Holidays from the menu and click on the Create new holiday button.
If you want to change something, hover over the holiday, click on the name and make the changes you need. If you want to delete it, click on the delete button next to the name.
You’ll notice holidays are marked with coloured flags on the My time screen when you track your time. The same flag will be used across other calendars in Productive.
