Mark company holidays (per location) on schedule
It would be a good option to have the ability to color the local holidays, so the workers and management could have an overview if that day is a normal business day or a holiday. This is useful for work planning and also for extra-work accountability since these days are counted as extra (at least by our country's law).
I would like to see the weekends at minimum appear in a shaded or highlighted color. Holidays as well. I add this as a comment on the day at the top of the schedule right beneath the dates. I also include the paydays and department meetings here. That way if a staff member checks their schedule they get this reminder on that day.

Would it be possible to have the bank holidays automatically imported like in Outlook?

For our retail business, the ability to display public holidays based on country will enable managers to quickly see when extra shift cover is required in stores. Store staff are also paid higher rates of pay on these days and will, therefore, support budget calculations for each store and beyond.
When marked it would be good to have two options: 1) to allow time to be scheduled on the holiday; 2) not to allow time to be scheduled on the holiday.

Great idea - as a college, we have some holidays we work (MLK Day), some we have no class but still work (Wednesday before Thanksgiving, day before Exams), and some days we have no class and no work (Independence Day). I'd love to be able to set the Work/Holiday schedule for the year in advance.
Country Specific public holidays can be made available to be added in Calendar so they do not need to be specified separately. Like Christmas or Independence day holidays are always there which Admin can select to be as holidays as default.
also, it will be nice to show Location based on AD criteria in calendar & views created automatically with location specific.
Based on Country/Region, have the ability to automatically create Stat Holidays in the scheduler so they do not have to be scheduled manually.
