How to combine an IF statement with Workday and MAX functions

Hi Friends,

I'm currently using the MAX function to determine the "Next Maintenance" date based on the "follow-up" columns as shown below. I'm looking for a way that if its output has a date of a weekend, it would automatically populate the next Monday date. As an example below, the next maintenance date coming from the MAX formula would be a weekend, and my goal is for it to directly have an output of August 23rd instead of 21st. Is it possible to add here an if statement with both Workday and MAX functions to serve the purpose or is there other ways of doing this?

Appreciate it!

    Hi @Yousef J. 

    Hope you are fine, please try the following formula and convert it to column format formula ( If Saturday will add 2 days, if Sunday will add 1 day)

    =IFERROR(IF(WEEKDAY(MAX([Monthly - Follow-Up]@row:[Annual - Follow-Up]@row)) = 7,
    MAX([Monthly - Follow-Up]@row:[Annual - Follow-Up]@row) + 2,
    IF(WEEKDAY(MAX([Monthly - Follow-Up]@row:[Annual - Follow-Up]@row)) = 1,
    MAX([Monthly - Follow-Up]@row:[Annual - Follow-Up]@row) + 1,
    MAX([Monthly - Follow-Up]@row:[Annual - Follow-Up]@row))), "")

    the following screenshot shows the result:
