Feature Announced: February 13, 2020 / Feature Released: March 9, 2020
Define Project Working Days
Procore has released Working Days, a new functionality that allows users with 'Admin' permissions in the Project level Admin tool to define which days of the week are considered working days of the project. Non-working days will be excluded when calculating the due date of an item.
Working Days has been added as a section under 'Project Settings' in the Project level Admin tool. See Set Project Working Days.
Why is this important?
Before this release, Procore calculated all due dates in calendar days, including non-working days like Saturday and Sunday. The Working Days feature will prevent non-working days from causing an item to become overdue. This ensures that the Assignee of an item is given the proper amount of time to complete the item.
Working Days will impact the due dates of items in the following tools:
Working Days will be accessible as a section within the Project Admin tool, under Project Settings.
Mark the checkbox next to each day you want to include in the project's working days.
Will there be a way to identify holidays, company-specific schedules, or specific days of the week rather than specific dates?
Not upon initial release. This feature is planned to be included in a follow-up release. More details will be released before these changes are made.
Will working days carry over from a project template?
Can there be multiple working day configurations in the same company account?
Yes, you will be able to create multiple project templates to accommodate different working days.
How will Working Days impact items that already have due dates when the feature is enabled?
The Working Days settings will only apply to new items created after the working days have been set. The settings will not apply retroactively to existing items.
