Add a Holiday or Vacation Day

Managing your company's holidays is an important part of scheduling tasks. 

TeamGantt allows you to add company holidays, off-days, and/or closures to your Gantt chart to prevent scheduling tasks on days when you and your team are unavailable. 

Add a Company Holiday

Account Holders are able to indicate company-wide closures and/or holidays, by going to Account Settings > Manage Holidays

Enter the holiday name and select a date. If the closure/holiday reoccurs on the same day each year, you have the option to select "repeats each year".

Note: At this time, only individual dates can be selected. A date range cannot be selected. 

Choose how to display holidays in your project

To eliminate the possibility of unintentionally or erroneously scheduling tasks on days the company is closed, your chart will default to hiding company holidays. To show holidays in your project, go to Menu > Project Settings and  choose  Holidays > Show from the  drop-down  menu.

Tasks scheduled on holidays before they are designed as holidays (and hidden from the calendar) will appear on the last available, visible day.

User-specific vacation days

To indicate a specific user or resource is out of the office, we recommend creating a group of tasks within your project (or even a standalone project) specifically for Vacation days. 

Then, users can create tasks for their days off and assign themselves to these tasks. When you view the Availability tab, you'll be able to see John, for example, is scheduled with "Vacation" from June 16-20th.
