Step 1 – Calculate First Day of Year

Add new rule to “StartDate”
Condition: None
Rule type: Action
Run action:
Set field’s value: StartDateFirstDayOfYear
Set To:

concat(substring-before(StartDate, "-"), "-01-01")

Add new rule to “EndDate”
Condition: None
Rule type: Action
Run action:
Set field’s value: EndDateFirstDayOfYear
Set To:

concat(substring-before(EndDate, "-"), "-01-01")

Step 2 – Calculate Last day of Year

Add new rule to “StartDate”
Condition: None
Rule type: Action
Run action:
Set field’s value: StartDateFirstDayOfYear
Set To:

concat(substring-before(StartDate, "-"), "-12-31")

Add new rule to “EndDate”
Condition: None
Rule type: Action
Run action:
Set field’s value: EndDateFirstDayOfYear
Set To:

concat(substring-before(EndDate, "-"), "-12-31")

Step 3 – Calculate the total days for the year so we can check if this is a leap year

Add new rule to “StartDate”

Step 5 – Calculate the week of the year

Set field StartDateWeekOfYear default value to Formula:

round(StartDateDayOfYear / 7)

Set field EndDateWeekOfYear default value to Formula:

round(EndDateDayOfYear / 7)

Step 6 – Get the number of weeks difference between the 2 dates

Set field WeeksDifference default value to Formula:

(EndDateWeekOfYear - StartDateWeekOfYear)

Step 7 – Calculate the difference in days between the two dates

Set field DifferenceDays default value to Formula:

(EndDateDayOfYear - StartDateDayOfYear) + 1

Note: On this case I’ve added one day to the formula so the last day is inclusive, if you don’t want the last day inclusive, remove the “+ 1” from your formula
Step 8 – Calculate the weekend Days

Set field default value to Formula: WeeksDifference * 2

Step 9 – Calculate the business days

Set field Businessdays default value to Formula:

DifferenceDays - WeekendDays
