This will give you an ability to set up Company's Calendar permissions. Basically, you can choose what types of events you want to hide from employees.

Locations, departments, divisions and positions

It is important to indicate locations in the system. They could be countries or cities where company has offices in. In locations is also possible to include address, time-zone and Holiday Policy.

IMPORTANT! All employees you assign locations with particular time-zone will automatically have this time-zone set up in their personal accounts.

Then you need to create divisions and departments.

How to use and differentiate them you can read here.

It is also necessary to add the positions that are available in your company.

All these items you can assign to your employees and also have flexible filtering in employees' directory, calendar, reports etc.

Holiday Policies

Holiday policies should be assigned to locations and will automatically work for employees who are associated with particular locations and they will have public holidays of the countries they are located.

You can check public holidays of each country.

Also it's possible to create a new holiday.

New created holidays can be:

Working holidays - they will be displayed in calendar but will not be a day off if employee will request leave and grab this day in his/her vacation period.
Non-working holiday - usual public holiday
Compensated working days - if you want to reschedule holiday to another day (if public holiday is on weekend and you want to give employees a day off during working week.

Employment Type and Skills

Employment Type can be assigned to employees and also there is a filter across the whole system where you can find needed group of employees by this item.

You also can add skills database so your employees can add them to their profiles and apply level or you can do this by yourself.

Leave policies

Settings for leaves are very important to set up and you can see all rules that can be applied here.
