Best way to assign free time (holidays etc.) to resources

Best way to assign free time (holidays etc.) to resources

I am coordinating a couple of people who are working in several projects. The question is: how do I administer the time that they are not working. I currently use a personal calendar when the are not working structural (so, when their week of work is not 40 hours but for example 32 hours). But how to cope with holidays en personal days-off. Is it the best to plan a special task for each resource to which they are allocated for 100% when they are not working? Or is it a better idea to plan this in their personal calendar? How do I get the best overview?

Please give me some tips!

RE: Best way to assign free time (holidays etc.) to resources

One, brute force approach, is to use only 155 or 160 hrs/month, which simply allows 220 hr/yr for holidays, vacation and sick time.
