Micro-Burndown Chart Missing Dates on X Axis

 We have been using the micro burndown chart for some time now, and all of a sudden they are not displaying all of the dates.  The chart starts out with labels for every day, then skips 2 days, then skips almost 2 weeks.  Any idea what could be causing this?

Hi Robert,

I guess because these skipped 2 days are on weekend (Saturday and Sunday), and no activity is collected in DW. Nov 6 is future date, and it should not have any data (burndown). Maybe you specified Nov 6 as an end date.

Yes, Nov 6 is the sprint end date.  I guess the point of confusion is that the burndown charts on the Plan View show a proportional scale, while this Micro-Burndown chart does not.  Is there any way to get it to show a proportional scale?  We are fine with skipping weekends (we configured it that way) but would like to see the remaining days so that the projected line is not just a steep dropoff.

Micro burndown should also show amount of remaining estimated work (in hours) over time. The burndown reports plots the remaining backlog of work in terms of  the time estimated to complete it. Only work items which are open and in progress and which have an estimate specified are included in the burndown report calculation. Can you ensure there are work items within the problematic plan that are in open and in a progress state and the Estimate attribute does contain a value?
