Exclude weekends from task assignment reminders and escalations

Hi there, it would be great to be able to cater for business days only (exclude weekends), when configuring NWC task assignment reminders and escalations. Currently when specifying days as part of reminders and escalations there seems to be no easy way to exclude weekends. Thanks.

    Please consider doing this. It is very useful. I am currently looking at creating a workaround using the Nintex Xtension "NWC Tools" to add the action "Working days simple calc" but that only gets me partially there. I have to add at least 6 other actions to make this workaround, and then do that about 5 times for each task assigned in my workflow. That makes the workflow even more complex and hard to manage. It could easily be added to the "Assign a Task" action because you already have the logic in this other action.

    Thank you very much for posting your feedback. At this time, we will not be adding this request to the near-term backlog, as we are focused on other priorites. However, we reevaluate requests every quarter and will reach out if priorities change. Please keep the feedback coming as it is critical for our longer-term planning.
