Hi,

We created in SharePoint the team calendar. As the team member stays in different countries, we would like to see the public holiday showing on the calendar. Is it possible? At the moment, we are adding the public holiday manually, like showed in the attached picture. Is there any automatic way to add?
Thank you very much for your help! BR Ying

    Hi @Wang
    There is no direct and effective method in sharepoint online to add holidays automatically.

    1. As a workaround, you could sync the calendar list to Outlook:

    2.Then add holidays to your calendar in Outlook for Windows

    3.After you add all the holidays to your Outlook calendar, open up the SharePoint Calendar in Outlook - Drag and Drop the events from Outlook to the SharePoint Calendar in Outlook.
    Holidays added to SharePoint Group Calendar through Outlook will be synced immediately.
