Please add Expr function to return number of working days between 2 dates or in general work with Calendars defined in Gantt
We need very simple capacity management in Structure. For this to work we have almost everything:
- ability to aggregate from tasks to Epics (and higher levels) for remaining estimates and spent
- Top-level group can act as a teams, for which we can defined daily capacity and planned work ratio (using field with CASE() for example)
What we lack is we can't calculate remaining capacity considering resources availability, mostly because we can't use production calendars (similar to NETWORKDAYS() of Excel) If we had this ability we could automatically build Structure view which shows current remaining estimates vs. remaining capacity (until a release) which is huge in terms of giving product management big picture of the release.
We understand maybe it was intended to use Gantt to achieve this, missing ability to work calendars is so sad, it could allow to completely through out Excels, use Structure for 'what if' analysis, etc.
Check the comment please, thank you!

Thank you for suggestion! We will think about excel-like function. And yes, we have additional Structure.Gantt plugin (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1217809/structure-gantt-planning-at-scale), where you can define the calendar and create plans to track the big picture of your releases.
