Configuring Holidays for MSP sites

     

    You can set the holidays for different sites in your organization using the Holidays option available in the Admin page. This page has the list of holidays during which the site will remain closed. It is exclusive of the weekly holidays. You can also set holidays to repeat on the same date each year such as, New Years Day, Christmas and so on. By doing this, you need not manually add the holiday every year in the list of Holidays.

    The holiday list along with the operational hours will be used for calculating the expected completion time of a request, depending on the priority or SLA applicable to that request. To open the holiday configuration page,
