Monthly or quarterly repeats on a working day

I’m trying to create a task that repeat every month on working day 7, that is not the 7th of each month but the 7th day of the month that is not a weekend.

Eg if the 1st of the month is a Monday, the 7th working day will be the 9th (the 6th is Saturday and 7th is Sunday so they don’t count).

Any idea how to achieve that?


one way that you can calculate the days using ms Excel, the import the cvs file to Omnifocus.

i don’t know if there are any calendar apps that are robust enough to even handle this situation.

OmniFocus’ calendar management is fairly basic.

The only thing I can think of is to create an Applescript that would handle your conditions. Of course that would mean you would need the OmniFocus 2 Pro upgrade. OF2 Pro is capable of handling Applescripts.

It is true that excel is able to do this with WORKDAY(date, days) but I was hoping to handle such a repeat in Omnifocus without relying on excel or scripts (I’m using OF on Mac but that’s not my iPad is my main machine for OF)

Thanks for suggesting!
