New features: business days for your deadlines, and changing process on the go

Calculate due dates in business days

Every company has non-working days: weekends, holidays, etc. Now you can exclude these days from due dates calculation in Metatask.
Use business days option instead of calendar days. So when you start process, due dates are calculated without weekends or holidays, only working days included.
Setting task due date with business days

To start using business days option, all you have to do is customize your company's Business Calendar - set necessary days as weekends, create holidays list. You can even include your company birthday or professional holiday into it!

For example, if you start new process on Friday and task has due date formula "1 calendar day after process start" - due date will be set on Saturday.
Due in one calendar day

But if you use new "business days" option - due date will be properly set on Monday.

Due in one business day

And more - this list of non-working days is then used everywhere you see calendar to pick dates:

Change process on the go

Great news for process managers - now you can edit active processes easier, using just process details page.

Change these process details on the go:

  • rename your process
  • reschedule process deadline
  • edit the list of process managers
  • change process description

You can also edit tasks in the same place: assign and complete tasks, change due dates.
