Define work days

Time-related calculations, such as velocity and release burn down, are based on work days and calendars.

Tip: For details about using calendar events for time-related calculations, see Set up calendars.

Overview

Work days are reflected in the following places:

  • Time-related graphs, such as burn up and burn down graphs, and the Control Chart

  • Story Board: in the WIP limit and card time limit

  • Planning tab of features and backlog items

You can define which days of the week are work days. You can define work days on the workspace level or on the team level. Team-level definitions override workspace-level definitions.

The default work days defined are Monday - Friday.

Note: Changes to work days are effective from the time you make the change and forward, not retroactively.

For example: A team member's capacity in a release will not be updated when you change the work days. You will see the effect of the change either when a new member is added to the team, or when the team is associated to a new release.
