Yes! I think I worked it out.

 

Used this: 

if(or(equals(dayofweek(utcNow()),4),equals(dayofweek(utcNow()),5)),addDays(utcNow(),5),addDays(utcNow(),7))

Hi @MargeNL,

 

If is the due date always 5 days? If it always 5 days, you can add two more days at the End date field.

If it not always 5 days, you can judge the start date whether is Thursday or Friday by using the dayOfWeek() function, if it is, add two more days, if not, no need to add.

Thank you. Sometimes things are so simpel!

Hold on.

I get the two extra days in case of 5 workdays.

 

How do I use the dayOfWeek function in case of 3 workdays?

Thanks for your patience.

Hi @MargeNL,

 

If the due date is 3 workdays, you can also judge the start day whether is Thursday or Friday.

If it is, End date = Start Date + 5 days.

Thank you, I understand that.

What I would like to learn/know is how to have the Flow Judge whether the start day is a Thursday or Friday.
