Holidays (Desktop Operations App)

 

Operations App is continuously updating and page layouts may differ. See here for other versions. 

Holidays can be set up to charge extra on the base rate or offer only specific order types on specified holiday dates.

To manage holidays go to MaintenanceHolidays.

Field NameDescription
HolidayDateDate of the holiday.
NameName of the holiday.
Multiplier

The number that the holiday overtime of the order, set on the rate chart, is multiplied by if an order is scheduled on this holiday. 

If this value is 0, no overtime will be added to the base rate. 

Example

The Holiday Overtime is set to $25 on the base rate chart of the order and the Multiplier is set to 3. 

This would add $75 to the Base Rate charge of an order placed on the holiday. 

Open For Business
