how to assign different holidays to 5 different regional sites under one holiday calendar?

Hello Experts,

i have a scenario where i am searching for standard solution, request you to please help me.

Company : ABC

HQ - Pune

Customer sites - 400

Scenario:

PA - India

PSA - Pune

WSR - ABC1

Holiday Cal - IN

Employee working in ABC company with PA-INDIA, PSA-Pune, but project Brazil - Brazil holidays to be followed.

Employee working in ABC company with PA-INDIA, PSA-Pune, but project Japan - Japan holidays to be followed.

______________________________

Employee working in ABC company with PA-Australia, PSA-Sydney, but project Japan - Japan holidays to be followed.

-------------------------------------------------

Employee working in ABC company with PA-Australia, PSA-Sydney, but project Brazil - Brazil holidays to be followed.

Solution till now found :

Club all the customer site holidays in One Holiday calendar

if India has 5 customer sites then club 5 customer site holiday calendar in in holiday calendar - IN

Create 5 different WSR, each for 5 customer site

While generating WSR(PT01)

WSR1 - Check for Customer site 1, while generating WSR public holiday will display day type and holiday class with some value, so if that particular holiday dosent belongs to customer site 1 then remove then value and make the field blank(link normal working day)

customer site 1 will have only those holidays which are applicable to site 1, other holidays needs to be removed from that particular WSR,

and same process follows for other WSR for different customer site.

As this is manual process by Consultants during generation off WSR, it can also cause human error.

Dear experts please help us with some standard solutions for this issue.

    Hello:

    Why don't you use different holiday calendar to cover this requirements. It's something very common in Germany or Spain where there are different set of bank holidays depending on the region your business sites are.

    Best,

    Hi Dhiren,

    I think you may be able to achieve this by assigning differing work schedules to employees dependant on the country they are working on.

    When you create each work schedule rule in T508A assign the appropriate holiday calendar. So in your example where you have a colleague based in India but working on a project for Brazil assign the Brazilian holiday calendar to that particular work schedule rule, in turn assign that work schedule rule to that employee in IT0007.

    The work schedules rules can still be made of the same period work schedules so in effectively they are identical however you can create varying work schedule rules and assign different calendars to each one.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Hello Antonie,

    Thank you for you reply,

    Holiday calendar needs to be mapped again the PA-PSA in V_001P_M

    here the scenario is, person is physically present in India location but works according to Brazil regional holiday, so in this case his PA-PSA will be India where in table V_001P_M holiday calendar will be assigned for India location.

    total we have 400+ customer sites, and people across the globe can have similar scenario, can be like employee from Japan would be working for Turkey, Employee working from Germany but needs to follow holiday calendar for Spain. and in addition if under 1 PSA there are multiple projects for few more countries like SPAIN, ITALY, UK etc. so in that case i cannot map multiple Holiday calendar to one PSA.

    Regards,
    Dhiren
