Control Chart Average - Mixing Weeks & Days?



On the control chart I have "show non working days" unticked. 

But the way it display average cycle times seems odd:

In the average display (top left of chart)..

For values less than a week I get e.g. 3d 4h 

For values over 1 week I get e.g. 1w 3d 4h 

so far so good...

But I also see values like 1w 5d 4h

Should this last one not say 2w 4h if I am not counting NON working days. 

Why does it show 1w then 5 days (5 days is one week assuming I'm only counting working days). 

Does a 1w actually mean 5 days in the display or am I missing something.

Hi Ian,

how is your time tracking generally configured (in the JIRA administration look in the System menu)? The default is that one week means 5d.



Hi Ian, I read 2 w 1d to be 15 working days so 3 calendar weeks. Hope that makes sense! But of course it doesn't.  I stand to be corrected, I would love to be corrected as this discovery is mind-melting.
