    Bank holidays

    I find it would be really useful to be able to introduce exceptions to the 7-day pattern for days like Christmas Day or other statutory holidays that may fall within the week

    Hi Silvia,

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I have thought about integrating holidays before but I have not come up with a solid solution. Having holidays calculated automatically is not really an option as holidays differ for each region/locale and there could still be exceptions where businesses remain open during a holiday.

    As for adding holidays or exceptions manually I think the property editor is not suited to store the data. In many cases multiple instances of the property editor is used (e.g. multiple businesses, departments, etc) and content editors would surely prefer entering these exceptions just once, in a central location.

    And most importantly, how are these exceptions to be displayed in the front-end? In my experience it can be as simple as adding an RTE which allows the content editor to input the exceptional dates. If you want to work with actual dates I would suggest using a multiple date picker, either somewhere in the root or right aside the property editors.
