Stat holiday edits for User calendar
Idea shared by Nicole Cook - November 9, 2015 at 6:37 PM

There does not seem to be a way to remove a public holiday from a user calendar in EP.

Some staff work through these stat holidays, or switch the date they have off due to meetings etc.

It would be great if the Stat holidays can be edited from a user's calendar.

Hello Nicole,
Noted your request to remove the public holiday from a user calendar and edit if from the user's calendar. 
Agreed that this would make your situation much easier as you indicate that some users may work on the holiday and take another day in lieu of the holiday. 
As you know this change likely would take a long time in the queue of requests for changes and alterations and depending upon the number of out customers who may face the same challenges it likely would be a long time before such a function would be able to be added.
I do have a suggestion that might work. If so you might want to explore the following.
For those holidays on which some of your users may work, remove them from your list of Public Holidays (found in the General /Company schedule when logged in as person with Manage system settings permission). Then you can create additional Vacation types such as 'Good Friday/Alternate' in the Systems lists/Vacation types menu. This should allow your users to book the day that they will take their day off for Good Friday for example.
It is realized this is not as simple as your suggestion, but in the meantime this may assist you to accommodate your users who take alternative days for some of your public holidays.
I hope this assist you.
