    Inputting holidays on every 3cx we have is like writing lines at school.
    How about a holiday importer, so as we could put in all the holidays fro the next 10 years, save it on a file and send it straight to the 3cx, better still why not have all the holidays in there already, when you select which country, it already has them all.

    Agree - it would be a big value add to make Holiday setup more automated, with support for holidays that float, but can be programmed. At the very least importing from a simple text file is a great idea.

    While not 3CX specific, there is great thread on this at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3709584/business-holiday-date-handling. Maybe there is a library that can be used to minimize development time.

    Yes please.
    First monday in September = Labour day setting

    Import/export to CSV file

    or go crazy and publish a default holiday template to be imported for various regions.

    In the USA at least, holidays *seem* random, but actually have very well defined rules. If we could duplicate these rules in 3CX, we'd *never* have to input holidays ever again, or need to import them, ever.

    The rules required are:

    A specific date each year.

    1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, or Last Day-of-week on a certain month (E.G. Martin Luther King, Jr. is always the Third Monday in January, and Memorial Day is always the Last Monday in May).

    If a holiday has a specific date, but falls on a Saturday, it is "observed" on the preceding Friday.

    If a holiday has a specific date, but falls on a Sunday, it is "observed" on the following Monday.

    (For example, Veteran's Day is always Nov 11th, but in 2017 that fell on a Saturday, so it was observed the day before, on Friday the 10th. Veteran's Day in 2018 falls on a Sunday, so it will be observed on the following Monday the 12th).

    Guys, you really should look at our FREE tool for importing holidays into 3CX. It is true that it is only for the Windows version of 3CX at the moment, but that will change as we have time to convert our applications over to Linux. Our 3CX Holiday Importer will import all holidays for nearly every country around the world through the year 2029. Effectively, you will never have to enter holidays ever again.

    I've been requesting the Linux port of this since the first Linux release was in beta. You may want to "make time" to convert this tool if you are going to continue advertising it as I believe you're going to see more and more installs go to Linux.
