Holidays and PTO

To set up Company Holidays for your account, go Settings > Company Holidays.

The dark gray dates in the calendar are suggested holidays for companies in the Unites States and are not officially a company holiday in the system until you select the date, complete the form that appears, and select Add Holiday to save. The date will then appear blue indicating that it’s a company holiday.

Once you've set up your company holidays, all PTO calculations will take these days into account. Here's an example to explain how holidays affect PTO requests.

Let's say John requests a vacation from Monday through Friday, with the following dates:

12/30 Monday
12/31 Tuesday
01/01 Wednesday
01/02 Thursday
01/03 Friday

If your company has January 1 set as a company holiday (New Year's Day in the U.S.), John's PTO request will be calculated as follows:

12/30 Monday: 8 hours
12/31 Tuesday: 8 hours
01/01 Wednesday: 0 hours
01/02 Thursday: 8 hours
01/03 Friday: 8 hours

In this example the total number of hours John will request for this vacation is 32 hours.

NOTE: At this time, Built for Teams does not support the creation of half-day Company Holidays.
