Setting up Public Holidays

Jarrison Time can automatically handle Public Holiday conditions and as part of this each year’s public holiday dates need to be added to Jarrison Time.  This is generally done when the time and attendance software is run for the first time, and at the start of each year. South African public holidays are pre-programmed in Jarrison Time to make the setup easy. The clocking system automatically applies “Monday PH if PH falls on Sunday” South African rule.

Custom public holidays can also be manually added and removed in Jarrison Time.

To add Public Holidays:

1) Go to Setup > Public Holidays


2) If no Public Holidays are present in the middle area, select or confirm the year for which you would like to add them.

3) Click on Add Standard to add regular South African holidays. Namibia is also pre-programmed, the location can be changed in the dropdown next to “for”.


5) All public holidays for the chosen year will be added and displayed.

6) A new public holiday can be added by clicking the Add button. For states besides SA and Namibia all public holidays will need to be added this way.

7) A public holiday can be deleted by selecting it and clicking the Delete button. Note this can’t be done if a calculation has been done on the public holiday.

Glossary of Terms

.Net Framework

(known as “dot net”) .Net is a software development framework for building and running applications on Windows.

Access Control

Access control refers to the restriction of people’s ability to clock on biometric devices based on location and/or time. Advanced access control includes anti-passback and zone sequencing.

Access Groups

Access Groups in Jarrison Time are combinations of Devices and Time Zones, used to determine on which devices and at which times members of the Access Groups may clock. Access Groups also facilitate restrictions based on too much or too little clocking in specified time-frames.

Access Groups can by synchronized or imported by Third-Party Import, or by users.

Access Zone

In Jarrison Time an Access Zone is how devices are grouped together to form logical zones for the purposes of access control. The option is available with the JT Live module.

Adjustments (Manual Adjustments)

Adjustments are the method of covering absence of time by employees in Jarrison Time. Examples of adjustments would be Annual leave and Sick leave. Adjustments are typically applied by a user via Daily Details as needed, or can be imported from file. It’s very important that Adjustments are correctly configured and applied as paid or unpaid. (Unpaid will result in Short Time.)

Anti Passback

Anti Passback is a form of access control where people are restricted from clocking on the device most recently clocked on, until they have clocked at another device.

Approval Bypass

Approval Bypass is a feature of Jarrison Time Approvals that allows for the first approval tier to be approved without any exceptions being cleared.


Approvals are a system-wide setting that forces users to correct Exceptions and then lock periods from further editing, ready for submission to payroll.

Jarrison Time allows for up to three tiers of Approvals: Daily Summary (timesheet), Pay totals, Department totals. Starting at timesheet level, each tier needs to be approved before the next one can process.


An Area in Jarrison Time refers to a GPS location with a set radius, which designates a permitted T&A clocking area for JT Clock users.
