Weekend/weekday alerts: weekday alerts to be triggered only on weekdays and weekend alerts only on weekends using daily granularity

Currently, it is not possible to create a weekday alert which is triggered only on weekdays.

If using daily granularity, an alert will be triggered every day even if weekday condition is set due to the granularity. It is also triggered on the weekend stating that the number is 0. This is a false alert, causing unnecessary concerns and checking of the data.

It's a shame Adobe don't offer this out of the box but you can work around it using the technique I describe here:

This question was about hour of day, but I'm sure you can adapt it for day of week.

 

Hope this helps, any questions let me know
