How to mark a day as a holiday and apply a special rate to any shifts worked that day

Premium users can now mark a day as a holiday on the schedule and elect to set a higher rate of pay for that date. When employees clock in and out for these shifts, their actual wages will reflect the higher rate of pay.

First, you have to make sure this feature is enabled in your Labor Cost Settings (Dashboard > Settings > Labor cost). Once enabled, you can designate the holiday pay rate (e.g. time and a half or double time) and any shift for that date will be calculated at the holiday rate.

You will also see that it's now possible to mark any day as a holiday by clicking on the +  icon next to the date.

A window will pop up where you can choose to apply holiday pay.

Once saved, you and your employees will see the day highlighted on the calendar as an indication that the holiday pay rate is applied. Managers and admins will also notice new summaries detailing holiday costs.
