Bank holidays FAQ

Updated by Daniel Sjögren

Q: What is the difference between a global bank holiday and a bank holiday set up in the agreement template?

A: The bank holidays set up in Account settings > Bank holidays are what's known as "global bank holidays" since they are applied globally across your organization/Quinyx setup. Global bank holidays will be displayed in the Schedule view with the date coloring turning red like on Sundays.

Bank holidays that are set up in your agreement templates are only applied to the people using the specific agreement template as part of their employee agreement. That said, in the Bank holiday section of your agreement template you can opt to use the default bank holidays (global) by ticking the checkbox "Use default bank holidays".
