WORKDAY.INTL Function – Google Sheets

The WORKDAY.INTL function calculates a workday a given number of days away from a date. You can optionally specify a list of holidays to exclude from the count and different weekends. If your days, months, and years are in different cells, use the DATE function to combine them. This function is different from the WORKDAY function because you can also specify different weekends.
