The burndown charts are always be stepped due to including weekends. Is there an option to have a smoother burndown by hiding weekends?

Thanks, Dmitry

Hi there,

As far as I know is there already an enhancement request issued which covers this problem. More information related to that is available here:

Anyway, we had the same question within our organization and adapted the existing Burndown report so that the adapted version can be customized by an additional parameter to exclude certain days from the Burndown result. Due to the additional parameter it doesn't work in the plan view but for all other reporting issues it works quite good in our environment. If you interested in the adaptations I can give you some details about the changes or send the rptdesign file to you.
