What are Company Assigned days?

As the name suggests, Company Assigned Days are mandatory time-off events which can be applied to your employees on a global or per location basis. Under most circumstances Assigned Days are used to assign public/Statutory holidays to employees. You can also use Company Assigned Days to block out specific periods of time whereby employees are prevented from taking/booking PTO or Annual leave.

Only Administrator users can manage Company Assigned Days
