3242772 - Configuring Business Days in Workflow Accelerator


Currently escalations, reminders or due date are triggered also on the weekend or public holidays. Is there any way, that the Workflow-system will trigger such emails only on business days?

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


Yes, this is possible. For this option you have to create a JavaScript task and use the moment-library.


In the newly added ScriptTask, add a boolean variable such as "IsWorkingDay".

Determine if it's working day today and set the variable.

Now you can use this IsWorkingDay flag in your workflow.

You can find more information in our userguide.

There is also an idea to add business days configuration to exisiting reminders/escalation settings for user task forwarded to our Product Managers as Feature Reuqest.

If you like this idea, please register your interest by creating a ticket in the Signavio Support portal, referencing this knowledge base article.

We'd also like your business case, so we can better understand the needs of our customers.
