RosterElf automatically applies public holidays to your sites based on the site's state and country. If your country has no states listed, RosterElf will use the national holidays. This is set up in the Sites tab when creating or editing a site.

Each site handles its own public holidays to help multi-location companies manage different public holiday sets in one RosterElf account. For example, if you have an office in Australia and another in New Zealand set up as separate sites, they can each have their respective holidays. Similarly, if you have offices in different states, you can assign state-specific holidays if your country supports states in RosterElf.

Public holidays will appear in red on the roster, and public holiday pay rates will be used for budgeting if included in your pay templates. This is crucial for payroll integrations to apply the correct pay rate.

Adding Custom Public Holidays

You can access the payroll settings to add or remove custom public holidays specific to your town or company or to change the default setting. However, once you switch to a custom holiday set, RosterElf will no longer automatically update your holidays to avoid overwriting your preferences. Therefore, use a custom set only if necessary.

Converting to a Custom Public Holiday Set

1. Access Payroll Settings

  • Click on the Settings tab.
  • Select Payroll from the dropdown.

2. Select Your Site

  • Choose the site from the Sites Linked panel where you want to change the public holidays.

3. Identify Your Holiday Set

  • If using a custom holiday set, a Custom banner will be displayed over the set.

  • If using the standard set, there will be no banner.

4. Remove Holidays

  • Click on the selected holiday and click on the X to remove.

  • Click on OK to save the change.

5. Add Custom Public Holidays

  • Enter the name and date of the custom public holiday, then click Add.

6. Add Custom Public Holidays

  • You can optionally change your holiday region by selecting a different country and state from the dropdowns and then clicking Add.

7. Repeat for Other Sites

  • Repeat the above steps for other sites by selecting them in the Sites Linked panel.

8. Revert to the Standard Holiday Set

  • If you wish to revert to the standard holiday set, hover over the custom set, click the red X, and confirm the deletion. The site will then revert to the standard set.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your holiday settings are accurate and up to date and reflect the specific needs of your sites.
