    can we use would here?

    I forget that you would be working today.

    Should it be will be working or would be working ?

    Thanks in advance!

    Use "would". However, I think you mean "forgot", not "forget". Am I right?

    I forgot that you would be working today.

    Exact words: "I'll be working today."

    Do you want to go to the park?

    I can't. Don't you remember that I said I would be working today?

    Oh, yes, I forgot that you would be working today.

    You could also say, "I forgot that you were working today."

    I think this is okay, though grammar books caution, I think, that this is "informal". "I forgot that you'll be working today." I like using "would" better in this sentence. So, yes, use "would". I knew that I would say that.
