Overview

Attendance On Demand has two different ways of managing the holidays your company is going to observe.

The first, is a simple method where you specify which day is the holiday and it is applied to all active employees in the database.

The second, uses more advanced eligibility criteria that allows you to assign the holiday to a select group of employees.


Simple Holiday Setup 

The Simple Holiday Setup can usually be found under the Advanced Operations section of the AOD Main Menu and is usually named Holidays.

When using this method, the eligibility and payment rules for the holiday are defined by the pay class the employee is assigned to. These rules need to be configured by an ICI Technician.

Defining Holiday Dates

To define a specific date as a holiday:

  1. Go to Advanced Operations > Holidays.
  2. Find the date on the calendar that you are looking for.
  3. Click on the Plus ( + ) for that day to define as a holiday.

Defining the holidays dates must be done each year. Holidays will not repeat automatically.

Removing Holiday Dates

To remove the holiday from a specific date:

  1. Go to Advanced Operations > Holidays.
  2. Find the date on the calendar that you are looking for.
  3. Click on  to remove the holiday from that date.


Advanced Holiday Setup 

The Advanced Holiday Setup can usually be found under the Advanced Operations section of the AOD Main Menu and is usually named Holiday Setup (Adv).

When using this method, the payment rules for the holiday are defined on the Holiday Payments tab. Some aspects of the payment rules will need to be configured by an ICI Technician. Eligibility rules for the holiday are defined on the Corporate Holidays tab. 

Holiday Payments 

The Holiday Payments tab allows you to create and manage different payment rules for specific groups of employees. Employees can be grouped by pay class, workgroup assignment, hourly status, etc...
