Tricky public holiday trap for Jira Service Desk Admins

While updating calendars for JSD (adding new SLAs) I noticed a sneaky 'feature'.

 

The calendar allows you to enter public holidays to be excluded in SLA counts. There are 2 options for each date - does it repeat annual or never?

Some public holidays are fixed each year like Christmas Day but other days move like Good Friday and Easter Monday.

 

This means every year, someone needs to manually check and update the calendars for the new year.

 

Has anyone else been caught out by this?

Hi Kat,

I wouldn't say "caught out", but as a matter of my annual tasks, we update the SLA calendars AND if you use Tempo you must do the same as well for the holiday schemes.

Welcome to being a jira admin.
