How to block out a holiday in the Workshop Software program

Do you have a well earned day off coming up? It could be Labour day on October 5th in many Australian states, later for our Kiwi cousins on the 26th or the lucky Victorians who are moving slowly out of COVID lockdown for AFL Grand Final holiday 23rd October and Melbourne Cup on 3rd November (how is that a thing?!).

Many Americans would close for Veterans Day on November 11th and certainly Thanksgiving on the 26th of November. South Africans might already be planning to honour the past on the Day of Reconciliation – 16th December.

Even if you’re just lining up Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year’s day for rest, this guide will help you to block out your team members availability. Plan staff schedules, jobs, stock either side of the holiday closure. Click here for details.

Don’t forget to update the trading hours for your store on your website, along with Google Places/Maps through Google My Business so that your customers know when you’re open.

Happy holidays from the Workshop Software Team!


“After using the software for a month with the Quickbooks integration, we can see that keeping up with parts and records is much easier. The integration helps up with knowing what is going on in the Workshop. Workshop Software is good.”
