Importing Holidays into the Lotus Notes Calendar

There are a few simple steps to update a Lotus Notes Calendar with holidays for your country or religion.

The administrator:
Open up the administrator client and go to the "Configuration" tab.
Go down to the "Miscellaneous" section and open up "Holidays".

You will see entries for each country or religion. They may look old but they are actually repeats so they could be quite valid.
My old entries here are good for 10 years.
The newest Holiday entries are kept in the NAB template.
To get them into your NAB click on "Actions" in the menu and select "Import Holidays from Template".

After running the import:

TIP: Since all calendar entries are in English you might want to consider translating the entries in the NAB now for any of your non-english speaking countries in your organization before they get pushed out to your users calendars.

The user:
Open up your calendar.
Click on the "More" button and select "Import Holidays"

Choose your country or religion.

Click OK and your are done!

Easter Holidays which I had translated first in the NAB

In regards to holidays, you will not need to update the calendar until 2017
