    Dear Priyanka,

    Working Day Calendar - Configuration Guide

    To find this activity, go to the Business Configuration work center and choose the Implementation Projects view. Select your implementation project and click Open Activity List. Select the Fine-tuning phase, then select the Working Day Calendar activity from the activity list.

    In this configuration activity, you can create a new working day calendar with reference to an existing working day calendar. You can also create a new holiday that is specific to your region or country, assign it to a new holiday calendar, and then assign the holiday calendar to a working day calendar.

    Create a New Working Day Calendar with a New Holiday

    Overview

    If you need to define a new holiday in your company because none of the existing holidays fulfill your requirements, for example, you want to define 24 December as a full-day holiday for your employees rather than the standard half-day that is currently defined, you do so in the fine-tuning activity Working Day Calendar with the following process: To find this activity, go to the Business Configuration work center and choose the Implementation Projects view. Select your implementation project and click Open Activity List. Select the Fine Tune phase, then select the Working Day Calendar activity from the activity list.

    a. Create a new holiday calendar with a new holiday

    b. Assign the holiday calendar to a new working day calendar

    c. Assign the new working day calendar to the relevant business residence in Organizational Management

  • If none of the holidays meet your requirements, define a new holiday by clicking Add.
  • 2.Create a new holiday

    a. Specify a unique name and description for the new holiday.


    Tip

    If you have different companies with different holiday schedules, indicate this in the name you assign to the new holiday.

    c. Select the holiday type.

  • Hi

    Thank you...But for a year I can create a new holiday assign a type a Floating holiday and I'll add the dates according to 2nd and 4th satrdy. What about future years? I again have to create new holidays for coming years.

    This is a manufacturing company, in a month 1st week has 6 working days and 2nd week 5 working days. Similarly, 3rd week 6 working days and 4th week 5 working days. So how to we do this, apart from creating new holiday calendar is there any other way to do this? and actually while creating the new working calendar we have the option to tick the days like mon, tue, wed etc. so how it is going to work do we have to tick on satrdy or not?
