Run automation only during workdays and work hours

With 5,000 automations that can be ran a month, I would like to reduce my automations by not running them during the weekends or on off hours.  This would greatly reduce the number of automations I am running.  Is there a way to do this in Qlik Automation?  

I am not looking to use a condition to not show the results during these times.  I am looking to not run the automations during these periods, at all.

Check if details in below link is helpful, looks like Qlik is still working on better options to do that -



Thank you for the response.  I reviewed that link.  It doesn't look like it stopping the automation on the weekends but just not showing the results.

I am trying to not allow the automation to run at all to help preserve my 5,000 automations.  There are so many wasted automations.  

If I was paying for the 20,000 automations or more and more than half of them were useless due to being ran on the weekends or after hours, I would be pretty upset with that.
