Schedule holiday shifts

You can configure your on-call group so that it automatically uses a different shift schedule on holidays. This allows you to give members the day off, work different hours, or have more time to respond to notifications.

On-call group holidays are used primarily for groups that have shifts that are active (or on-duty) part of the time. You do not usually configure holidays for on-call groups whose members are active all the time, such as a group with a single 24x7 shift used for broadcasting emergency messages.

There are several ways to define how shifts behave on holidays. The most straightforward way to define holiday coverage is to create a separate holiday shift. However, you can also specify existing shifts to be on call (or not on call) for all or part of holiday days.
