How on Earth Didn’t I know about this: Import Holidays
Today while complaining that I hadn't realised last Monday was a public holiday when arranging our latest BizSpark Camp for Windows 7 development, Developer Evangelist extraordinaire, Andrew Coates kindly pointed out that Outlook has an option to import all the holidays – and perhaps I needed to import them. Of course, my first response was – “No way!”. So Andrew walked me through how to set it up:
In Outlook, go to File -> Options & then select Calendar.
Once the calendar options screen opens, click the Add Holidays button:
Tick the box for your country
Ta-da! You now have the Public Holidays in your calendar!!
