For 2022 I present here a free vacation planner for smaller companies and employees.
With the last vacation planner, I have gradually published different versions. At the end, planners even for middle east were then on offer. In this article I will approach it a bit more structured and consider all forms from the beginning.
Update: The planner for 2023 is online.

Use of the vacation planner 2022
Users of the vacation planner from last year already know it and know: It is quite simple.
First, download the Excel template at the end of the article and open it with Excel or similar software such as Numbers from Apple or LibreOffice a free Office alternative.
Now you have two options: Either you edit the file directly in Excel or you print it out and mark the holidays of your employees by hand.
Editing the holiday planner with Excel
You have probably already received holiday requests from your team and can now enter them directly into the calendar. The easiest way is to put a cross (x-key) in the corresponding fields. If you like it colorful, you can also use colored symbols or color the whole cell accordingly.
It is best to save the file in a location that only the holiday planner can view, so that an employee cannot jump the queue 😉
If you want to be on the safe side, you can of course install a lock with password protection so that nothing really can happen.
But if you have some computer knowledge, you will probably be able to crack the password protection.
Analogue use of the holiday planner
As already mentioned above, it is also possible to print out the holiday planner, hang it on the notice board and have the employees fill it in directly with a ballpoint pen or coloured pencil. However, a meeting with a detailed discussion is probably better in order not to create any injustice.
Download section of the staff holiday planner
Here you can download the Excel and PDF files directly.
If you like my templates, I’m looking forward to a little donation 🙂
