Within the Gantt chart you can choose to skip weekends. If you choose to enable this, weekends will be hidden within the Gantt chart. Any tasks with start or due dates within weekends or milestones within weekends will be pushed to a weekday.

Note: Teamwork defines a weekend as Saturday and Sunday.

To enable skipping weekends, select the 'settings' option to the top of the Gantt chart to view the general settings where you can toggle the 'Skip Weekends' option.

Once you have enabled it you will see the following message if you have project items falling on a weekends:

"You have tasks with start or due dates within weekends, so they will be shown on the chart on weekdays and will be highlighted with an alert icon. Clicking the 'Save' button in the upper right of the Gantt chart screen will apply the adjusted dates."

The above means that if you have project items that have been updated automatically, those changes will not be applied until you save changes on the Gantt chart. This gives you an opportunity to preview the changes that will be applied before clicking 'Save'.

When you enable ‘Skip Weekends’ and have ‘Auto Save’ switched on, next time the Gantt chart attempts to automatically save changes you’ll be reminded that tasks have been updated so you can choose to accept those changes.

How it works

When enabled, task and task list duration's are calculated excluding the weekends. When moving or resizing tasks or task lists, the Gantt chart maintains the duration, while modifying the start and end dates, so that they fall on a business day.

Tasks, task lists and milestones which start and end on the same weekend are displayed as one day items on Monday of the following week.

The skip weekend preference is saved on a per project basis and if it is toggled on then it will be enabled for all project users. Only administrators can enable the setting.
