It would be awesome if IT could set up a shared zimbra calendar with all relevant countries' public holidays listed. That would effectively remove the need for all@ announcements about holidays. Bonus points if this calendar was automatically added to every employee's Zimbra calendar to remove the step of having to add this manually. Also, it would be great if this calendar (ics file) was public enough that the community could benefit from this too.
Desktop, Please create these calendars in the mozillacalendar@ account (I think that's where MoCo BrownBags and MoCo calendars are). Assign then this bug to me so I can run the scripts to add them to all the employees. Thanks!
Hey - Sorry for the delay. I've created a calendar called Mozilla Holidays. Its open to the public to view at this url: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/Mozilla%20Holidays.html
I note that the calendar appears empty - who is going to populate the calendar?
This would be someone from desktop. Once the calendar is populated, punt the bug back to me to have it pushed to all the employees. Thanks!
Oops sorry - I didn't realize I was on the hook for that. let me get that info in there. Jen
Ok - I have US/UK/Germany and some Canadian holidays for 2013 listed. We're still working on the rest. Do you think would be a good enough start to push out? If not, we should have the rest of the 2013 holidays by early december.
Following up with HR. Once we get the go ahead we can push this out.
This calendar has been created - but we've never been able to get anyone to populate it with the correct data for recognized Mozilla holidays. I'm going to try again.
Hi David - We worked on this, but we found that as we were putting in the different holidays per country in - it was a messy and ended up too difficult to use. Especially because countries like Canada - sometimes have holidays that differ from providence to providence. And there's the added difficulty of trying to make sure everyone is equally represented. Instead, we're going to work on a list that people could reference and then add to their calendars.
