Can timewrap be utilized to only use weekdays?

Specifically, if I am searching from a Monday for a daily report, can I skip Saturday and Sunday and use the timewrap utility to chart Friday? We want to be able to skip Saturdays and Sundays when we use the daily comparison of timewrap.

Thanks!

You could do something like this, run over -7d@d to @d+d in my case:

| tstats prestats=t count where index=_internal by _time span=1h | timechart span=1h count
| eval wday = strftime(_time, "%a") | where wday != "Sat" AND wday != "Sun" | fields - wday
| timewrap d

The first line loads an example timechart, the second throws out Saturdays and Sundays, and finally it runs timewrap. I get a chart for latest_day, 1day_before, 2days_before, 5days_before, 6days_before, 7days_before - note how 3 and 4 days before are missing, those would be Saturday and Sunday.

Yes, however, I want to skip Saturday's and Sunday's. I wasn't sure if that could be done utilizing Timewrap.

So... you are doing a "compare today with the last X working days" report?
