Only show weekdays (or lmited days) on the schedule board

Many companies do not schedule resources on the weekend, thus it would be helpful if we could hide these days completely on the schedule board. I would not fix this to Sat/Sun as some countries have different weekend days or companies might have entirely different working days.

Update 2/4/2021. 

On the new Schedule Board, you would be able to see the Booked hours aggregation and the Name of the job on the Bookings itself. However, the ability to show a custom field on the Bookings in the Days view, is still something on our roadmap, not yet available in the schedule board. 

Thanks,

Vinay

Same dispaly of schedule board booking tooltips view for hourly, daily, monthly view

Booking Tooltips view is differently displayed (hover by mouse over reservation) within the schedule board hourly view setting vs daily and weekly views setting. The Idea is to allow to set up the same booking tooltips for hourly, daily, weekly scheduling calendar view.

The booking tooltip in the new schedule board has been updated to be the same display for all calendar views hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly.  Additionally, when you customize the booking tooltip it will change across all calendar views. 

Thanks for the feedback!

Allow different types of work hours, such as normal, overtime, travel-only, etc.

We often get requirements where bookings should not be stricly constrained by the working hours. For an emergency, it may be acceptable that the technician works longer. Or travel from/to the job might be possible or even required outside the working hours. It would be great if we could define...
