I'm scheduling a trigger. I notice under Schedule Watcher, Specific days of the Month that there is a Work Day option. We work Monday through Saturday. I only see 23 work days. Does that mean Monday through Friday are the only work days AutoMate uses? Are the Work Days customizable for a site or AutoMate computer?

Thanks

There are several different ways you can schedule your trigger to run Monday through Saturday. You can select your interval to run daily and exclude Sunday, or select the interval to run on specific days of the week and specify the days you want your task to run by checking the appropriate boxes.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the information. That still doesn't help me run a task on the 4th workday of the month.
That would be:
9/5/08 (if 9/1 was excluded).
10/4/08 (that's a Saturday)
11/5/08
12/4/08

If I exclude a day, is it skipped as a work day?

I'm sorry I misunderstood your question in the first post. It looks like you want a task to run every 4th workday of the month . If thats the situation all you need to do is open the Shedule Watcher Trigger-------use the drop down menu and select specific days of the month------select work day------add which day of the month you want your task to trigger. Please see attachment for example .

Hope this helps
