It would be helpful to be able to skip weekends in reporting. Especially around reports that look at weekly/daily performance by individuals, it would be nice to be able to exclude weekends.

Hi Ky, do you have a sample use case or chart that you could post as an example to help us understand the use case more fully?

Hi Dan, 

Here is an example of a report we use to show a CSM their daily email activity. In this case, it would be nice to be able to exclude weekends and only showing working days. We have other cases where we have looked at things like our average time to complete a training in which case it would have been nice to exclude weekends, but we ended up having to build it into Salesforce since we were not able to do it within Gainsight.

Thanks Ky. It sounds like you can skip weekends in SFDC? How does SFDC handle holidays or individual vacations (as those would mess up metrics too, right)?

I think they keep it pretty simple. They just exclude weekends, no exclusions to holidays. They just go based off "business days".
