How to Configure Holiday Time Zone Setting in Ingress
The Ins and Outs access of the buildings are crucial in ensuring safety, in particular, employee and company assets lost. One of the ways to reduce the risk is by limiting the building access.
For employee access, the time zone can be set for those who are working for a designated time period. For example, if the building has a standard operation hour, the weekday access time of the building can be set from 8.00am to 6.00pm. However, if a public holiday falls on weekdays, the building can still be accessed despite being a public holiday. To better address this concern, the Holiday TimeZone is designed to satisfy a higher security of the building access.
It is easy to establish the holiday time zone in the Ingress software. This software also allows the Time Zone setting to arrange workers by group. Setting the holiday time zone is also possible using the R2 solution, however, the settings for this will require each user to be set one-by-one accordingly. This could become a time-consuming task for big companies that have many workers.
