Important dates are used as guides when creating a schedule or budget. For example, a holiday that requires extra staffing. Anything that can help a manager adjust staffing requirements can be entered as an important date. Important dates can also span multiple days, e.g. Thanksgiving weekend may modify staffing requirements for several days.
You must have administrative rights to add a new important date. Contact your administrator if you do not have sufficient access rights.
Follow these steps to add an important date:
- Go to the Settings page.
- Select the Manage Important Dates link.
- Press the Add Date button in the top-right.
- Enter a description, date, and the number of affected days.
