Portfolio for Jira - Weekends can't be excluded.


I want to plan my teams tasks without weekends being counted as work days.

The project is configured in the default workdays configuration.

The board is configured in the default workdays configuration.
The board is configured as Kanban.

I have defined estimates in days for the stories.
I have defined dependencies for the stories.
I have assigned the stories to a release (which I want to schedule).

I am using the improved planning interface of portfolio (Advanced Roadmaps) (Cloud)

=> In the planner view, I can see all parts of the release as expected. When I manually schedule the "bar" it can be assigned to weekends, which are annoyingly still visible in the calender timeline.Advanced Roadmaps Weekends.png

+ The placed story has to be adjusted by hand to the estimated length in days (single klick makes it 7 days long.... not e.g. 4 days long like defined.

+ The placed story (or the subtasks) can be assigned to WEEKENDS!!!!


=> Bonus Problem: Autoschedule (sometimes) ignores estimates and dependencies. It ignores the sequential scheduling and the estimated length of each task.

+The auto scheduler even displays his own errors (self aware?)
+The estimates are completely ignored
+The assignee is expected to be able to clone himself AND time-travel.
