Confluence Op Link to Calendar.gzip

Please note

  • Please carry out the Operation Scaling 7.0 before you link to the calendar. Otherwise a raster interval will be created per calendar day type.
  • XML definitions are available for a quick import of calendars.
  • Please check if day types shall be taken from the calendar (seldom) or if a certain denomination shall be used (e.g., "Holiday"). 
  • In addition to the public holiday calendar there are also some holiday calendars or macros for computing available. (Link in old wiki does not work any more)
