Can we stop automation notifications triggered on weekends and holidays?
I hope you're well and safe!
Try something like this.
=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)
Did that work/help?
I hope that helps!
Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!

@maltaee stopping automations on weekends is easy enough if you add a column that calculates the day of the week everyday. You would add a condition to check for that on the automations.
For the holidays.. I'd have to think of there is an easier way than having some lookup sheet with the dates of holidays and column that would disable automations as a condition by checking if today is a holiday...

@maltaee I think I have an idea using the workday function, but I'll have to play with it next week to make sure it works like I think it will
Thank you, Darren and Andree.
My trigger date is two days after the requested date.
RE playing w/ project settings, is that feature only available with Gantt View? - I don't see it with Grid View and don't need dependencies enabled for this intake sheet.
@maltaee "RE playing w/ project settings, is that feature only available with Gantt View? - I don't see it with Grid View and don't need dependencies enabled for this intake sheet."
Correct, you have to be in Gantt View and enable dependencies to enable those settings.
Happy to help!

I'm sure this is super simple but myself and a colleague could not figure it out. I have some very simple data I need graphed for a project: Not Started, In Progress, Complete and then % Complete using the total. The pie chart for the Not Started etc. comes out correct: But when I ask it to graph just % complete, it does…
Hello, I am working on a training log for our company. I am trying to get the status color to turn green if training is completed, yellow if it is due in the future, and red if it is incomplete.
