Anaplan does not currently have a similar function, but you could use an assumption module to collect the number of working days in a month or to "flag" days as working days and then get a monthly total of working days.
Thanks for that,
The module can hold the actual working days in the month, although it will be a tedious task calculate the working days in excel for each contractor and load them on a regular basis. How do others build a contractor based model? Is it likely this will be a feature built in time?
I don't think there are any changes to the formula addressing working days in a month. You could always use WEEKDAY formula and Holiday mapping (dependent to year and region) to address this.
I have attached a sample screens below in which I used to address number of working days in a month.
Hope that helps.
Hi,using the weekday formula in addition to a dedicated time management module will make the job :
weekday will allow you to split days monday to sunday, thus having the "usual" working days easely indentified.
a time management module with boolean will allow you to add January 1st, Xmas day and and so on either manually or through formulas by testing dates (01/01, 25/12....) depending on your country.
