Flare have system default holiday calendars assigned for each state as a whole, these calendars may not take into account specific holidays with the respective state.
Examples of this are:
AFL Grand final day - as this falls on a different date each year this holiday is not included in the default calendar
Different cities within QLD have specific local holidays, these are not captured in the default calendar - EKKA is one of these as it relates only to Brisbane city
How to review your calendars
Go to: Settings > Payroll Setup and select the "Holidays" tab
You can then bring up the holiday calendars that are applicable to your organization and review to ensure all dates are loaded (just make sure your looking at the correct year)
Once you have the calendar displayed you have the option to:
- Edit the holidays name and date
- Delete a holiday from the calendar
- Add a new holiday
If you need to create a new calendar simply select "add new" in the top right corner
This will create a blank template which you can add the holidays too. This includes any national holidays like Christmas, Easter etc.
Once all dates are entered select "save"
A couple of things to complete once a holiday calendar is updated or created
If you have created a new calendar this will need to be assigned to the applicable employees via their role page. This is located just below the employee start date
Once the calendar or calendars have been updated send through a support ticket with the details. As these tie with absence records the calendars need to be updated within payroll, this process is not automated and requires a manual configuration to ensure the correct dates are recorded against the correct employee's and state.
