I don’t generally like to just repeat content from other sources but this has been such a common question/request that I thought it was worth shouting about.

In the latest Visual Studio Online release (January 22nd) you can now configure your working week to exclude weekends, or define which days you do you want to be included in the burndown:


Go to the admin site, and for each project team, you can then change the working days setting.

The release also includes support for querying tags from work item queries, another often requested feature.

Good stuff!
