Mat Newman August 27 2012 23:48:27Is there a Local "Holiday/Vacation/Bank Holiday/Day Off" you can share with EVERYONE around the world?
Why not submit it to the Global Lotus Notes and Domino Holiday project?
Gabriella Davis from The Turtle Parntership has kindly offered one of The Turtle Partnership's servers to allow EVERYONE around the world to share local holidays to make it much easier for Admins to give their users the ability to Add Holidays to their Lotus Notes Calendar.
Simply download the attached file, add your own Local Holidays, and then replicate with connect.turtleweb.com to submit your entries to the Global Holiday Project. (File -> Replication -> Replicate, "With Options", in the server field the first time, type in connect.turtleweb.com, then hit OK)
Once you have replicated the database, you will have access to ALL of the Holidays submitted by everyone around the world, which you can then easily copy-paste into the Domino Directory of your own Lotus Notes/Domino Domain for your users to then add to their own Calendar, using "More->Import Holidays"
Tips for Submitting:
Please ensure you enter the correct name for your local holiday, eg:
Term 1 School Holiday Break
Title: "Octoberfest Germany"
Title: "Queens Birthday"
Ensure the dates in the "Holiday Information" are correct.
For items like School breaks, ensure you "Mark time as: FREE" so people without children still show up for work, for items like Public Holidays, Bank Holidays, etc make sure you enter "Mark time as: BUSY"
Time for some *doing* everyone - download, add holidays and replicate NOW to contribute to the "Global Lotus Notes and Domino Holiday Project"
Get involved, share your Holidays and join this great community project to keep everyone's information up to date.
