Configure working days

Azure Boards | Azure DevOps Server 2020 | Azure DevOps Server 2019 | TFS 2018 - TFS 2013

Configure the days that your team works. Your team's working days aid in capacity planning purposes and when you're using sprint and scrum methods in Azure Boards. Each team's sprint planning and tracking tools automatically consider days off when calculating capacity and sprint burndown. Leave those days of the week that your team doesn't work unchecked.

Note

The Working days setting specifies the days that teams regularly take off each week. To specify additional non-working days off, such as holidays or a team day off, set these through the Capacity page as described in Set sprint capacity, Set capacity for the team and team members.
