A holiday is a day set aside by custom or by law on which normal activities, especially business or work, are suspended or reduced. Generally, holidays are intended to allow individuals to celebrate or commemorate an event or tradition of cultural or religious significance.

You can manage company's holiday by clicking on 'Holiday' link on the left side bar.

Once holiday is added in the Holiday list, employee's attendance shows 'H' i.e. 'Holiday' on the attendance records. If employee is clocked in on holiday, Xostr considers it a working day. To make it easy to use, multiple dates can be selected at a time during addition of holiday. But only one holiday can be edited at a time.

Attached image shows attendance record of an employee in which right most column shows status of the attendance. Dates which are marked as holiday are showing 'Holiday' as its status in the attendance record. Date which is not marked as holiday & employee has not clocked in for that date, is showing 'Absent' as its status in the attendance record.

You can get more information about attendance record in the Attendance Module.
