Ability to create release phases and milestones which automatically use business days

For example, this would allow me to create week-long phases which would be 5 days (and not 7 days). A milestone would also automatically be populated on the first business day available.

Related to this, I would like to be able to create templates of phases and milestones that only take into account business days

    This would simply the tracking and reporting significantly!

    I need to hide both weekends and holidays. There would need to be a way to these specify holidays.

    A great feature we'd love to see

    This is a needed option for release templates. Trying to line up phase durations to start and stop at the beginning of a standard five day work week is infuriating.

    This would simplify the sprint setups and JIRA integation. Please add this feature.

    This seems like a key item for us.  Our estimates and jira work items are based on 5 day work weeks.

    Essential to have things built around a work week. Please.

    When setting up default phases for releases, we can specify the number of days (duration) that are allocated to a phase. Is it not possible to have this as the number of work days instead of calendar days?

    I think APP-I-5002 should be merged into this one and its votes counted.

    I was boggled by the lack of this functionality when I tried release phases for the first time. I've never seen a work scheduling tool that doesn't understand working versus non-working days, at least based on days of the week.

    Not having this makes planning really hard. Must have asap.

    I am surprised this does not exist. This is "Gantt chart functionality 101". Please consider implementing this.

    Having the option to filter out weekends and apply them to these phases would be very helpful.

    Absolutely essential, additionally would be good to add peoples holidays ,exceptions etc and have the release and resourcing account for it.
