Abstract

This enhancement allows an installation or individual running the PROFS Program Product to tailor both the working and non-working day of the calendar function. Because of the diversity of the environments where the calendar product is installed, there is a need for the installation to tailor the calendar according to the needs of their employees. And because there may be several different work schedules within a company, a user may choose to tailor his own calendar. In the calendar function there are two files which are maintained for this purpose. The first being the profile used to tailor the work day. This file may be maintained by either the system's administrator or an individual user. This file contains the following information: -The days of the week that are considered non-working days.
