Vacationplanner 2021

Header to Article "Vacation Planner 2021"

For 2021 I present a free holiday planning for smaller companies and staff.

At the time of publication, however, the topic “Corona” is still in the air and for many people the prospect of going on holiday (at least for 2020) is very much clouded. Even if the borders in Europe are open again and holiday destinations are reachable; the report on television about the flights already made makes me stay at home rather: Airplanes are completely booked out and are accordingly full. Sufficient protection is not to be thought of.

But I do not want to digress too far, and I hope that in 2021 things will return to normal and that we can enjoy a well-deserved holiday.

Vacationplanner 2020

The holiday planner for the current year (2019) has proved to be extremely popular and of course the holiday calendar for 2020 should not be missing! That’s why I’ve already started to create it.

A holiday planner is extremely helpful.

On the one hand, it helps the company or a department to make sure that someone always holds the position and that not all employees are suddenly on holiday. Well, there can always be cases of illness, but this is another construction site ?

On the other hand, a timely blocking of the own vacation can ensure that one uses his vacation days efficiently: Thus one can make by consideration of the holidays with 8 days 2 weeks vacation. As for example with use of Good Friday and Easter Monday.

The new template for holiday planning 2020

In the last Excel files for the planning of the holidays, I have also taken the following year into account in order to guarantee planning beyond the turn of the year. This is also the case in the current planner.

Vacationplanner 2019

Holidays for 2019 are still a long way off, but some companies need to plan for the long term to avoid understaffing. For this case, I have updated the vacation planner 2018 to 2019.

Update: There is a new planner for 2020.

Unlike the last vacation plan, this time there are three instead of two worksheets. Two for the year 2019 and one for the first six months of 2020. Thus, the holidays for the New Year or New Year can also be recorded immediately.

On the first two worksheets you will find 6 months each with the individual days of the week and room for 7 employees. You can print the sheets and mark with color or characters (for example, a cross or a dash) on which days which employee is on vacation.

Break-Planner with excel

There can be a break schedule for different purposes

  • for the break planning of employees of a department, where always a person must be present, e.g. in order to ensure the telephone contact of customers, and
  • for the recording of break times for employees and workers who take their breaks themselves but have to record them.

For these 2 purposes I have prepared different break schedules in Excel, which hopefully will be useful for future break planning.
