This guide is designed to support users to prepare the upload templates for overriding holiday for a flexible employee via a dataload. To do this, please first raise a request with your Fourth Contact and provide them with the correct populated template. If unsure of which template to complete, please raise a discussion on the Customer Community for advice.
Each data load is chargeable and must be booked in with Fourth's Data Team. Please liaise with your Fourth Contact to arrange to have this done.

Removing the Flexible Holiday Override
When the core system is calculating a more accurate calculation than the flexible holiday override, the override can be removed.
- Navigate to the Employee Batch Update and manually deselect the boxes in the employee batch update and save each page.
This cannot be done via a dataload.
