Configure public holidays dates

How to apply your public holiday region and add additional public holiday dates.

Updated over a week ago

This article details how to apply public holiday templates in your Tanda account, and how to add additional public holiday dates.

Tanda includes templates containing the dates of State and Federal public holidays. Public holidays that are determined by your local council government are not included in these templates - you can add your local show day holiday by following the steps below.

Select your public holiday region

As best practice, configure your account wide Public Holiday region as 'Australia (national holidays only)' by following the steps below:

  1. Navigate to Settings > All Settings > General > Public holiday regions

  2. Select your public holiday region from the list

On your location settings, configure your state specific Public Holiday region (eg. 'Queensland') by following the steps below;

  1. Navigate to Workforce > Teams > Edit Location > Advanced Options > enter the Holiday region

Enter additional public holiday dates

If you have public holidays which are not included in the state or federal templates, such as a public holiday determined by your local council, enter the additional date by following the below steps.

  1. Navigate to Workforce > Teams > Edit Location > Advanced Options > enter the additional date

Note: If a location does not have a public holiday region set, the holiday region from your account general settings will be used, however, if a public holiday region is specified in the location settings for a particular location, Tanda will refer to the location settings for all public holiday dates, including which additional dates are applicable.

How to identify public holidays in Tanda

To identify when a public holiday is applying in Tanda, check for the green icon on the rosters and timesheets. This is a good way to check that your public holiday settings are configured correctly.
