Trend line incorrect due to company furlough + holiday break

Started a test run in early December. Coupling Christmas holidays followed by a week of furlough, and the way weekends happened, and no one did any testing for 11 days (lucky us to have such a nice break!). This seems to have deeply affected the projected end date in the trend graph.

I cannot find a place in the Milestone to exclude time like this (furlough time, PTO, vacation, holiday, excused absences, etc). Is it even possible to configure such non-testing time? How does TestRail account for such time (or doesn’t it)? Is there some technique that I’m missing?
