I'm leaving in a couple days so went to set up my vacation hold.  The little calendar which you click on to set the dates isn't working for me.  Anyone note that issue in the recent troubles of the past 2 months?  I was able to type the dates in the boxes however.

Put my acct. on vacation hold about 3 weeks ago, no problem. Took it off vacation hold 3 days ago, no problem. Wondering if it is a browser issue?

Jeanne, I'm having the same problem. I had to type the date in as the little calendar icons/links did NOT work.

I had the same problem a few weeks ago around the first of March.  Haven't tried it since then.

I agree with Sally; sounds like it's working with some browsers and not others....

I also had to type my dates in. I use Firefox.

It's not working in Chrome. The other calendar, on the book receipt page, seems to be working fine.

If clicking on the calendar doesn't work in your browser, you can hand-type in the dates, as Pamela said.

I use Firefox. I've had to hand-type in the dates for months. Just another glitch that has become the glitchiness site ever.

I use both Firefox (home) and IE (work, not by my choice). It's not working on either for me. I hand typed in the dates.

I use Safari and never have any issues when others report problems.  The last time I had to put my acct on vacation hold was at Christmas and it worked fine then.

I'm also having a problem with Vacation Hold. I put my account on Vacation Hold over two weeks ago, but I never got to go anywhere. How disappointing! smiley
