Public holiday management just got a whole lot easier

Public holiday management

One of the ‘problem areas’ in our system has historically been public holidays. Users have had to remember to go and configure their public holidays before things like leave estimates and award pay conditions would work. We provided an import function from Enrico however this was a manual step and it imported a bunch of regional public holidays that were not applicable state-wide.

From now on, it is no longer necessary to set up your public holidays manually (although you can definitely customise them if you need to). KeyPay will provide an up to date set of public holidays in each business, automatically.

All public holidays that have been automatically created by our system will be denoted by the icon in the top right corner.

Specific public holidays can be customised and turned off, if necessary. To mark a date as ‘not a public holiday’, simply un-tick all of the states and click Save.

The date will now show with a strike-through to indicate that it is no longer considered as a public holiday.

Additionally, custom public holidays may still be created as has always been possible.

This automated public holiday management means that there is one less step involved when setting up a new business to use KeyPay, meaning that you will be up and running faster than ever.
