This article describes how to set working days, off days, and public holidays in Lark Attendance Management.
I. Function overview
Lark Attendance supports clock-in on working days, off days, and public holidays. Whether abnormal attendances should be recorded can be customized by admins according to the needs of the company.
Working Days: Require clock-in, record abnormal attendances, and send notifications regarding them. For example, no clock-in is regarded as absence, and delayed clock-in is regarded as lateness.
Off Days: Permit clock-in, but do not record abnormal clock-in or send notifications.
Public Holidays: If a public holiday is scheduled as an off day, the clock-in rules are the same as for an off day.
Log in to the Attendance Management backend, open the Attendance Group Settings, and click
Add Attendance Group or Edit original attendance group. Locate the shift attendance settings menu to configure settings for working days, off days, and public holidays.
1. Day and Off Day Settings：System defaults set Monday to Friday as working days, and Saturdays and Sundays as off days. Check or uncheck the configuration boxes to adjust working days and off days.
2. Public Holiday Settings：Public holidays in various countries can be scheduled as off days automatically according to the country where the attendance group is. (China, the United States, Japan, India, and Singapore are currently supported.) This setting can also be turned off, so public holidays will automatically be scheduled as off days.
3. Special Day Settings：Clock-in settings for special days can be configured by clicking Add an attendance-required date and Add a no-attendance-required date.
Q: If a day falls into more than one category, which clock-in rule should be followed?
A: Clock-in rules are prioritized as follows: special days (clock-in required or not required) > public holidays > working days or off days.
