One of the cool features in our calendar is the ability to export data to other Chaos users so they can add it to their schedule without dealing with importing. On the receiving end, you just get a file to download, double-click and accept to get these items added to your schedule. We call this feature Transportable Records.
You can find world holidays in the downloads area of our website or at http://www.chaossoftware.com/trecords/holiday.aspx
Right now, I am almost finished creating new transportable records of holidays, moon phases and Jewish religious holidays for the years 2016 through 2020. If your country (or one you know well) isn’t listed on our website, you can help me and other users by adding these holidays to your schedule then exporting and emailing them to me. I would certainly be happy to post them for others to download, with credit on the website to you, too, if you like.
To be useful, we need all of the years worth of holidays for a country from 2016 through 2020!
If you can help, here’s what to do:
- Enter the items into your calendar. Using a group name for the holidays when you enter them will make it easier to export to send in.
- When you are ready, use the Report screen to find the holidays with a date greater than or equal to 1/1/2016 and a date less than or equal 12/31/2020.
- Highlight the results and look for Export, then choose Transportable Records. You’ll get to name this file and choose where to save it.
- Finally, email that in to me at sales at chaossoftware.com and tell me if you also want credit on the web site.
