The holiday add-on allows you to create custom holiday types like unpaid leave, maternity leave, compassionate leave or any other type you may need. Before you can create a new holiday type you must first make sure the corresponding time entry activity has been created. This will usually be created under Internal > Absence > "Name of Holiday Type" If you have already done this please skip to step 5.
please refer to the Adding Entitlement For Custom Holiday Types Guide to add entitlement to existing holiday Types.
