I'm just posting my comment here in case the moderator doesn't accept it on the blog. We've been waiting for Zoho to roll out the "Skip Week-ends" option for over 2 years. Some posts on this forum have requested this feature for over 4-5 years (yes that's right!). After several promises that this feature is being developed and soon to be launched, imagine my pleasure when I received an email that this feature has been finally rolled out. Then DISASTER strikes, the blog post states: "Skip Weekends is available only for Enterprise customers" This BASIC project management feature will only be available for large teams. Had I known this would happen we would have switched from Zoho a long time ago, but we trusted their word that this feature will be rolled out soon. And now that it has, we can't use it. No, we will not upgrade to Enterprise, there is no need for our company to do so.
I find this completely absurd that this feature which should have been one of the first to implement will require us to pitch in extra just to get it. This is unacceptable. We are extremely disappointed.
Sorry to disappoint some users with this. Basically, we want to classify the feature into Basic planning vs Advanced planning. Skip weekends & Holiday configuration are advanced planning configurations and hence it is given only in Enterprise plan.
Moreover we have promised the "Skip weekends & Configure Holidays" feature will be released in future and we hadn't mentioned anywhere in which plan it will be offered.
You will be disappointing most users, not only "some". Like Michelle (and others) have said, excluding weekends from project timeline planning IS a basic function. It's so basic most people likely assumed it is part of the platform when they signed up. We did and were very surprised to discover it wasn't. I hope you will re-evaluate your decision.
