Highlighted weekend work days (in exchange for Public Holidays) on the calendar view

In Hungary we have some workdays moved to Saturdays in exchange to have bank holidays + weekends joined.
For example: In 2019. we have 2 working Sundays (at 7th and 14th of December) in exchange for a longer Christmas holiday (not working on 24th and 27th December).
What would be the best way to change these exceptional weekend days to work days?
Currently if I set up them as Public Holidays (to enable some visual mark for them on the calendar), the weekend grey-out hides the sun icons for Saturdays.
It would be great if there would be a possibility to visualize these working weekend days somehow in the calendar.

  • I have the same request: be able to make individual weekend days normal workdays in the calendar.

    Automatic calculation of leave days should count those weekend-work days as standard workdays.     

    And yes, a different symbol will help to increase visibility. 

  • This issue hit us again this week and it's very annoying.

    It would be great if not just the national holidays could be configurable in Process Config / Public Holidays, but these exceptional working Saturdays as well.

    As a workaround now we do edit weekend requests and override their taken time, making working Saturdays to count as 8 hours / 1 day for the allowed/taken days calculation. It's a pity they still don't appear neither on the Team Calendar, nor on the "Year at a Glance" page, not even if I hide weekend's gray color overlay.

    Could you please implement / fix these?

  • Hi Tamas

    I would recommend using our compulsory days feature for this scenario. You can mark those Saturdays as Compulsory Work Days, which will show on the calendar view with a X on it - to highlight that employees need to work. 

    Take a look at the following article for more information:

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi @Megan, 

    Your link for the Compulsory Work Days does not work and I did not manage to find it in the online help of Appogee.

    Could you please help me by sharing a working link to that article?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi Tamás

    Apologies for that, I'm not sure why the article didn't work.

    Can you try this one?

    Thanks, Megan

  • Thanks, this links works, so we can dive into Compulsory Work Days now :)
