Select Holidays Setting on Workflow Templates

Select the setting you need for Holidays on the Workflow Template. This will tell the Workflow whether or not to count a Holiday in the Expected Completion Date and the Next Scheduled Date for recurring Workflows. 


There are three options for Holidays:

Allow--The Holiday will count as a regular business day for the Workflow

Set to Previous Business Day--Workflow Manager will count the business day prior to the Holiday for the Next Scheduled Date or Expected Completion Date

Set to Next Business Day--Workflow Manager will count the next business day after the Holiday for the Next Scheduled Date or Expected Completion Date


You can set a different Holidays setting for each Workflow Template. This allows greater flexibility in the scheduling of your Workflows. 

Salentica can be customized by your System Administrator, so your views & access may differ from this documentation. Please contact your System Administrator with specific questions.
