Holiday Schemes Management

Holiday Schemes Management

In 2020 working from home is a new normal, along with many challenges that fell on the shoulders of remote teams. But, we should not forget to celebrate the very fact of living life and important events.

ActivityTimeline will help you not to forget such moments.

Holidays for Remote Teams

Very often teams are dispersed across the world and even members of the same team can work far away from each other. For example, you have 3 different teams: Developers, Designers & QA Engineers, they are mixed between the USA & the UK, so it could be a challenge to track their holidays correctly.

In order to set up the correct holiday schemes, we may use classic teams as an example. We create Classic teams based on users’ location additionally to already existing teams, e.g. Developers, Designers, and QA Engineers.

  1. First of all, we need to create a classic team and call it – “US-Based Team”;

  2. Then, we form the second team named – “UK Based Team ”.

To create new teams go to Configuration > Teams > Click on the button “Create new team” > Choose “Classic Team”, then choose the team name and its members.

Create Holiday Schemes 

The next step is to set up 2 Holiday Schemes, based on location and apply them to the corresponding teams.

Holidays Schemes provide a set of different schemes for your employee, you can create or import schemes for one or more ActivityTimeline’s teams.

To create a holiday scheme go to Configuration > Teams > Holidays Schemes. On this page, you can see already created schemes.

To create a new Scheme follow the steps:

  1. Click on the “Create new scheme” button;

  2. Choose the one or more teams to which the scheme should be applied;

  3. Enter the name of a Holiday Scheme;

  4. Click on days to mark them as Holidays > Holiday will appear in Holidays list;

  5. Fill in the name of a holiday. If a holiday name is not applied then the date only will be saved > Click “Create” to save the scheme.

  6. In one scheme possible to define holidays for multiple years per a single Holiday Schema (example: holidays for three years from 2020 until 2022 years together in one scheme).


After that, Holidays will appear on the timelines of the teams.


You will be able to find scheme details, delete or edit them due to your preferences.


As for now, Frank can congratulate Kate on the Queen’s birthday and Kate will be able to congratulate him on Father’s Day, or they both can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day together.


Stay closer to your teams despite the distance with ActivityTimeline.
