Holiday/Emergency Closings


This article will cover the configuration workflow for Holiday/Emergency Closings feature for the event and room management products (SignUp, Spaces, and D!bs).   

The Holiday/Emergency Closings feature creates an easier workflow for configuring holiday/emergency closings schedules for all locations and rooms/spaces.  This feature enables the configuring of the closings from one place vs editing each location's hours.  Libraries with multiple locations and rooms identified this as a key pain point in managing the hours for their system.    

To access the Holiday/Emergency closings feature, select the Settings menu in the side navigation menu.  Select the Location Setup sub-menu.
