Burndown chart should exclude non-work days

Including weekends and other non-work days skews the slope of the ideal tragectory line. You may leave the office on Friday looking like everything is on track only to return Monday 2 days behind. If you don't exclude those days, at least flatten the tragectory when no work is expected to be completed.

    Today we have announced that the burndown excludes the weekends on Visual Studio Online. Later this year, this feature ships with TFS 2013 Update 2 for our on-prem customers.

    See the announcement at http://www.visualstudio.com/news/2014-jan-22-vso

    If you want to configure the working days of your team, you can click on the gear button in the top right corner which will open the admin area in a new tab. Click on your team, and choose the “settings” tab.
