Can you set a task to ignore non-working days?

Can you set a task to run for a fixed number of days - regardless of non-working time?

 

For example - I have a 3 day task which is the time it takes for changes to be applied to a User Account (e.g. the addition of new software, changes to security permissions, etc).

 

This takes 3 days. Weekends and Easter Holidays don't apply to computers! So a change made on Friday morning will be live on Monday morning. But if I put in a 3 day task starting Friday, it will show as ready on Wednesday morning.

 

If this isn't possible - a request would be to be able to assign a "hard" duration to a task.

 

"3d" = 3 working days

"3dh" = 3 days (always T+3)
