    Unfortunately, I could not find a way to count only working days, currently you can only count the days between two dates without excluding those not working days.

    Here is an example about calculating days: https://form.jotform.com/53097140976967.

    Feel free to clone it.

    Hi exsfvid

    TitusN (JotForm Dev Team) just recently released an improved version (on Feb. 23, 2016) of the Dates Difference widget (fig. 1). In the new release, you can manually select specific day(s) of week to exclude in the calculation (in your case, put a check on Saturday & Sunday) - fig. 2

    You can view or clone the demo form I made to see how it works (fig. 3).

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Nik_C.

    exsfvid is asking if you have a way (or widget) to translate the Dates Difference widget (or entire form) into Spanish? Currently the calendar day-labels, widget titles, and output are in American-English.

    You can translate the label, but not the texts inside the widget.
