There are two areas that affect Abacus Administration.

Global Administration

Abacus is ready to use out of the box. However, if you plan to use Date or duration formulas, we recommend paying attention to the Working Days configuration.

In this section - Under Systems Setting > Manage Apps > Global Working Days , as a user you can define Working days that affect all projects in Jira.

Project Administration

In this section - Under Project Setting > Apps > Abacus, as a user you can create new formulas or adopt existing formulas from other projects, create and maintain execution plans and configure project specific Working Days.
