Thanks @basdebruin.

Hi @yenlee & @greiser we’re hopefully to have this all up and running by February next year.
Feel free to email me at if you’d like additional information.

Thanks Grace. Our app will be able to do all of the above apart from on an owner by owner basis.

This is also a feature that we really need.


While there are external solutions to this as noted above - this is a function that should be available if monday truly wants to become a workOS. The ability to block-out dates globally is needed so that when we have dates generated (dependency + x days), it should be able to use holidays the same way as weekends. Due dates shouldn’t calculate to weekends, and due dates should also not calculate to holidays.


Hi all,
This functionality (holidays/non-working days) is now available with our app SchedulerPro!
Install a trial, here. :partying_face: :partying_face: :partying_face:

Hi Kim, is scheduler pro part of

Hi @WendyV, yes - SchedulerPro is part of in the sense that it’s an app that you can purchase on the app marketplace. Built for purpose, to power-up your account.

So, is this function ever going to to be a basic capability of rather than a 3rd party add on?

We would like to be able to indicate public holidays and school terms in Date column calendar view.

Great idea @odelegacy and thanks to everyone for voting and sharing feedback. We’ve discussed implementing blackout days in Timeline/Gant views with out development team and they agree that it is important. While this feature is not immediately planned, due to other priorities and team capacity, the development team hopes to be able to provide an update in the near future.

This is a feature we still really need! Please consider this a priority item!



I am looking for the functionality to block off days on a Employee’s schedule for both personal days and “blackout days”. I envision this being something the individual would do in their Profile that would then inhibit anyone from scheduling items/subitems to them on the days they have marked as “Vacation” or “Blackout” days. The need for the vacation day scheduling is I believe self-explanatory. The “Blackout” days would be used for instances where the employee needs to be offline or has recurring monthly/weekly priorities they attend to on those days hence they cannot get to any other tasks.

For example our web programmers have offline days where they get into the weeds coding, and our SEO Specialist has 2 days a month where he does reporting and auditing of the clients we manage.

I would want them to be able to set these days in their profile as stated, then if someone tried to schedule a task on their list during one of those days it would not allow them to schedule said task. Instead the person doing the scheduling would get a note that the employee was unavailable that day, or it would automatically schedule for the next available day - something like that.

Is there something like this in place already - does anyone else have a need for this or a workaround that has been working? Let me know! Thanks!!

This third party App is $99/mo! This is way too much for a function that should be basic and included in software. Very disappointed


Agreed, that’s not an option for small organisations, when it should be standard functionality.
