To create Blackout Days, go to Settings > Company Holidays.

Using the same calendar where you define holidays, you can indicate any days that you’d like to “blackout” meaning, employees are not allowed to request time off on those days. For example, if your company hosts a huge event on a particular day and you need all hands on deck, you can make that a blackout day which tells the system not to accept PTO requests on, or through, that day.

To create a blackout day simply select the day, indicate that it’s a blackout day under Type of Day, apply it to a specific office/location if you have multiple locations, and indicate which PTO policies it applies to. You can then select the date range and click Add Blackout Day to save.

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