Reproducing the Issue

  • As per Work Schedule, employees work 5 days a week. (e.g Monday - Friday; Saturday and Sunday are non-working days);
  • The requirement is to set one non-working day (say 2nd Dec 2017 (Saturday)) as a working day.



This can be achieved using Temporary Time Information.

  • Create a Work Schedule with only one day, which is a working day. (e.g 2nd Dec 2017 as Working day. Rest of the days configure it as non-working days);
  • Create a Temporary Time Information for all users who should be working and assign it to this created Work Schedule. You can do this via MDF Import in a Mass scenario.


NOTE: If this is only a non-working day via Holiday Calendar, you have to remove the holiday from the Holiday Calendar and create a Recalculation event as well.
