How can I set the weekends to be non-working days in Jira OnDemand?

The title says it all. Greenhopper manual suggests to go through 'Administration' > 'Global Settings' > 'Timetracking', but there does not seem to be a corresponding menu option in Jira OnDemand.

Answering your question, it is currently not possible to set this. This has been requested here which originated from this request -

JIRA Admin > System > Time Tracking

Thanks for the quick answer, Jobin, but I have no "System" option under "Jira Admin"...

What I do see under "System Info", however, is that "Time Tracking Days Per Week" is set to 5. Would you know if that implies that Greenhopper skips weekends in the burndown charts?

Yes, it will skip weekends.

In my case I already have 5 days/week, but I still see weekends in my charts

Yes, that's what we see too, so I'm wondering if it actually skips weekends in the cancellations. Still going to have to test that.

I ran a test and found that unfortunately the weekends are not skipped and burndown is expected in them, even thought the "Time Tracking Days Per Week" is set to 5 in our Jira OnDemand instance:
