Change Weekend setting by board or workspace

The weekends setting should be a little more flexible, either by board or workspace. Previously, it only applied to timeline columns and it was recently (Nov 22) retro-fitted for date columns as well. This has wreaked havoc on my organization as we sometimes need to set weekends as a running date for an item but the deadline should always be on the weekday (we don’t work weekends). This has caused a lot of issues for us when using monday.com to create timelines with dependencies as we now have to manually update each line item to not include weekends. Help please!!!

It would be great to also be able to set holidays (company closures) by board or workspace alongside the ability to choose weekends or not.

Hi Marcy,

Just out of interest, why would you need to plan a deadline in a weekend? Is that because monday dependency does not work correctly with deadlines (that should really take 0 days from a planning perspective).

Our partner Work Perfect has an app SchedulerPro that support real deadlines (taking up 0 days). The app is in the process of getting listed at the monday marketplace. You can express your interest by using this form here . The contact person for this amazing app is @Kimb

Very soon after initial release the holiday blackout will be introduced. This will work as a view where you can create multiple schedule. Each different board can use a different schedule. Below is a sneak preview of the working day schedules view. The app also supports lead and lag days and all 4 dependency types.

Thank you for this. I went ahead and filled out the form. This will be perfect for my timeline boards and I have been asking about holiday blackouts since we acquired our monday.com account.

To clarify, we’re an advertising agency so our traffic team will set weekday deadlines based on (sometimes) weekend run dates of a publication. However, during our busy season, we will sometimes even have to set deadlines over the weekend. The ability to be flexible with working days from board to board is extremely helpful.
