Set working days

Azure Boards | Azure DevOps Server 2019 | TFS 2018 | TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | TFS 2013

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 in your team's Settings, Working days page.

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 them through the Capacity page as described in Set sprint capacity, Set capacity for the team and team members.
