    Hi @maltaee

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    • Add a checkbox helper column (You can name it Working Day)
    • Add the following formula that will be checked if it's a Working Day and not a Non-Working Day, Weekend,/Holiday.

    =NETWORKDAYS(TODAY(), TODAY(), Holidays:Holidays)

    You can change the Holiday reference to another sheet with a cross-sheet reference or remove it completely if you add the Holidays to the Project Settings)

    • Add a condition in the Workflow(s) to only trigger if the helper column above is checked.

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!

    Best,
