Ability for autodecline function to allow for weekends

For a journal that I work on, there have been a few complaints from reviewers who have been invited to review on the Thursday or Friday and then autodeclined on the Monday, without having had enough time to respond over the weekend. We require the autodecline time to be short during the week, when most people spend enough time at their desk to respond to our emails. However, the option to be able to allow for weekends, and for ScholarOne to recognise when the invitation timeframe extends over the weekend and automatically add two days to the autodecline date, would be great. This could be configurable (optional) for each journal.   

I am aware that there has been a similar suggestion regarding the invitation reminder emails, but I am writing here specifically about the autodecline function.
