    Hey David, Johan and Paul,

    Great news :) With the big release this week, you can now perform far more advanced calculation to the brand new Calculation field.

    We have an article to explain how this works here:

    We use a number field called "Number of work days".
    That allows us to calculate number of leave days taken in reports.

    I know it sounds great to have a calculation that automatically works out the number days between a start and end date... but what about weekends? Public/bank holidays? I.e. if I put in a leave start date that's a Thursday and leave end date that's the following Tuesday... surely I'm only taking 3 or 4 workdays (depending on whether the end date is inclusive/exlcusive) - you wouldn't want the app to add in the 2 weekend days as well.

    So we use both a date and number field:
    - "Dates" date field in order to visually see who is away on the calendar view
    - "Number of work days" number field for the leave taken calculation
