Calculate working days from todays date from a variable in hours

I need a label or textbox to display

from a calculation so many days from todays date based on a hour value("dwn_Tasks.Selected.ServiceLevel_hours") in a dropdown

Excluding weekends

(8 hour working day)

So if the value from the dropdown is 72 hours(4 days)from todays date ;

the date displayed would be   2020-7-13  yyyy-m-d

 

Thanks

Dave

Hi @DAVIDPOWELL ,

 

I feel confused with your requirement:

Why do 72 hours mean 4 days? Is it a mistake

What is the start day of the week? Sunday, isn't it?


If my assumption is right, Please try to set the Text property of label as follows,

Text(
    DateAdd(
        Now(),
        dwn_Tasks.Selected.ServiceLevel_hours/24 + 2 * If(
            (Weekday(
                Now(),
                StartOfWeek.Sunday
            ) + dwn_Tasks.Selected.ServiceLevel_hours/24) > 5,
            RoundDown(
                (dwn_Tasks.Selected.ServiceLevel_hours/24 - (5-Weekday(
                    Now(),
                    StartOfWeek.Sunday
                ))) / 5,
                0
            ) + 1
        )
    ),
    "[$-en-US]yyyy-m-d"
)

@v-siky-msft,

Sunday may be the first day of the week, but is not considered a workday. Nor Saturday.

 

But thanks will test the formula.

Great! and thanks. I can work with this.
