Notes tip #1: Import Holidays

March 30th, 2013 | Posted by elfworld in IBM | Notes | Uncategorized - (2 Comments)

Aren’t there times when you are looking through your Notes calendar and you wish that public holidays could be marked, so that you don’t accidentally book meetings on days that no one is at work? At least here in Europe that’s a problem, what with all our public holidays. And if you work at a company that have branches all over the world, or as in the case of my company, employees are travelling all over the world to meet people, it’s often useful to see when other countries have their holidays.

This is how you import holidays into your Notes calendar:

  1. Open your personal calendar inside Notes
  2. Above your calendar, next to the New button, you have a More button. Click it and choose Import Holidays…Import holidays
  3. This screen will pop up:
  4. Holiday Group
    You can choose to import the holiday of any country in the list by checking the check box to the left of the name of the country. In this example I’ve chosen Norway:
    Chosen Norway
  5. Now all the Norwegian holidays will be imported. To check this I go to December to see if the public Xmas holidays have been setXmas holidays

    The Norwegian constitutional day is also in place:

    17th of May

    Also holidays that occur on different dates each year is in place. Here’s Easter:

This is how easy it is to have full control over holidays, both in your own country, and other countries. This is of
course also replicated over to your cell phone if you wish.

Welcome as I start a new chapter in my blog life. I’ve decided to start blogging the personal stuff and various opinions that I’ve got (and I’ve got plenty) in Norwegian. I will do this in my Norwegian blog. My old blog is now archived but is open for all to read.

In this blog I will concentrate on technical stuff I like. First and foremost about IBM’s Domino platform, IBM Sametime and IBM Connections. But I will also blog about programming, web technologies, social business, social media, photography and of course my brilliant (*cough*) user tips for Lot..sorry, IBM Notes. My plan is to learn Xpages during this year, so I will post about that journey as well. I will also post about tips, tricks and problems I’ve got with Lotusscript, php, JavaScript, CSS, HTML and similar fun stuff.
