Why Can’t A User See Public Holidays?

Public holidays are region specific. They will normally only show on LeaveWizard leave calendars for users in the specified region. So, to see public holidays, the user needs to be in a work group located where they are effective.

The location of their work group dictates the user’s region, as shown on the Organization And Employees page. In the example below, any user in the ‘Cleaners’ or ‘Sales’ work groups are in the ‘Shop’ location, which is specified as being in the city ‘Cambridge’ and country ‘United Kingdom’.

In this example, ‘All’ locations in the country ‘United Kingdom’. So, all the users in the ‘Cleaners’ and ‘Sales’ work groups will have the ‘UK Public Holidays’ dates on their leave calendars.

If a user wants to see all public holidays for all locations, then they can optionally tick the ‘Show Public Holidays for all locations’ box on their ‘Leave Calendar’ sub menu. The ‘Leave Calendar’ and ‘Dashboard’ calendars only will then show all public holidays.
