Bulk add holidays to SLA calendars

Read how to bulk add holidays to many SLA calendars 📆.

🌴 The holidays added to your calendars in selected service desk projects allow to not count non-working days towards your SLAs.

Natively, Jira Service Desk offers the possibility of adding them project-by-project for every calendar separately, which can be tedious and time-consuming, especially if you have a lot of projects to configure.

Using our feature, you can configure holidays and select to which service desk projects you want to add them without moving from one screen to another. Everything can be configured in one place!

Please back up your database or create an XML backup in Jira before attempting this action.
