Work day calendars for automation schedules

Add ability to set up a calendar with work days / holidays and sync Automation schedules with this calendar so the schedules do not run on non-work days.

Example: A schedule runs daily to create shipments for all open sales orders and print confirmation to the warehouse.  This schedule should run every day, expect if it is not a work day.

Typically setting the schedule to run Monday - Friday works, but that does not account for Long weekends and holiday etc.

If there was a check box on the automation schedules to sync with the company calendar, users will not have to worry about deactivating multiple schedules over holidays.

    This would be a great feature, and I'm somewhat surprised that it doesn't already exist. 

     

    For some of our use cases, financials cannot be run on holidays.  However, because automation schedules cannot account for this, we have to resort to other means, such as using external batch schedulers in combination with web services exposed from Acumatica.
