We would also need this feature. It would be great to see some response from Monday as to why it has not been included so far.

Do you have any updates about this feature request. Being able to add our company holidays to the site and then have the system treat those as non business days so that our due dates and timelines are always using the correct dates.

@monday-team This is a super basic thing - why is there no update or reply?

Is it possible to add the above functionality?
It would be vital to the productivity of my company too.

Thanks kindly

As our team is global, we have holidays falling everywhere and even people taking a holiday that we cannot account for in the timeline and this feature would fill a huge gap for us at the moment.

All,

Together with one of our partners we have build an app for more advanced planning. This includes entering dates or timeline, 4 dependency type (including backward planning) and lag. The app is designed to allow for holiday / blackout days. As these days are different in different parts of the world we need to define those days somewhere in the account.

Poll: what do you think is the best location inside your monday account to store your holiday / blackout days. Interested in your ideas, so we can incorporate those ideas in the app.

@basdebruin I’d say probably just in a bespoke board, honestly. Maybe in a “Holiday” workspace just to keep it separate from everything else.

I agree Holiday blocking is an essential feature - this is a basic need for project management. I am disappointed not to see any responses from Monday/com Product Managers here - being a PM myself. I personally would put this feature in Admin area - where we set up the workdays since our holidays are usually company wide affecting all schedules globally. Secondly, and less important - I would put an additional feature for Resourcing for people’s personal days off.

@monday-team We also need this feature. Is there an update?

We totally agree Holiday blocking is basic feature for project management.

Also the ability to schedule based on a 4 day workweek.

There is an app called SchedulePro that let you define both the workweek and blackout dates in a view. The app is currently in the process of getting approved in the marketplace. More info can be provided by @Kimb

Below is a screenshot of the view (blocking out Thanksgiving and the Christmas week). The final layout of the view can change a litle but the funtionality stays the same.
