What are special periods?
Companies often have specific periods during the year where the global operations are impacted in some way, for instance, closing periods for financial activities, maintenance or frozen windows for software development, etc.
On Winddle, those periods are gathered under the umbrella term of Special Periods. By registering them on Winddle, they will appear on the relevant Checkpoints in your Project Lines, giving some additional context to both your employees and your partners.
