Hide weekends from Paper timeline

Explorer | Level 4

Fairly common feature in most gant-charts and similar, since most teams work Monday to Friday hiding the weekends from the timeline view offers a more accurate representation of how many days the steps will take.

Sorry Emma but this is a bit silly assumption to make from the team. Even though it's a single request, this is a high priority for most people using gat, that along with the ability to create depoendencies, multi-selection and critical lines, but I would put weekends above those. Just look into other apps that have introduce timelines, this request is quite common, and sometimes a deal breaker.

I need to remove weekends from my timelines.

I need it to be from Monday to Friday. 

Is there a way to do so? If not, please dropbox people, think about it.

Thanks, I wanted to create timeline for a work and decided to use dropbox timeline. I too felt a great need to hide weekends. Hiding weekends would be a great addition to timeline
