date_shift() shifts x to the target weekday. You can shift to the next or previous weekday. If x is currently on the target weekday, you can choose to leave it alone or advance it to the next instance of the target.

There are separate help pages for shifting dates and date-times:

date_shift(x, target, ..., which = "next", boundary = "keep")

Arguments

x

[Date / POSIXct / POSIXlt]

A date or date-time vector.

target

[weekday]

A weekday created from weekday() to target.

Generally this is length 1, but can also be the same length as x.

...

These dots are for future extensions and must be empty.
