Resource Planning

Has there been any progress made in Jira in terms of resource planning - at an individual level? 

We have developers, QA Analysts, BAs, etc. and would like to be able to account for estimates for each of them individually. 

We are in the earliest stages of using auto scheduler to assist with scheduling in Advanced Roadmaps, but as of right now, it is a great place to get us started, but the calculations seem fairly inflexible. I've heard there may be add-ons out there, and that's great. I would like to better understand the tools we already have first so that I know that we are not simply not understanding how to use Jira for all its worth.



Hi @Jamie Edmondson 

Advanced Roadmaps can assist you with planning based on the information you feed into it, now you always have this option to override it but if you want to plan resources over the period of time then you can also take a look at Tempo Planner. It will let you plan/allocate resource to Jira issue on a timeline.


Thank, you @Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ ! I appreciate the response. I may have to give that a try. I hear good things about Tempo.



Hi @Jamie Edmondson 

If you consider using a plugin I would suggest ActivityTimeline. ActivityTimeline provides resource planning and availability on a timeline view. You can track tasks progress, workload, and availability for each employee taking into consideration the part-time, full-time, or even different work schemes for users, and holidays. Workload or availability could be calculated for individuals or teams on the same view.

There is an ability to plan your work with bookings and placeholders.

The additional modules provide numerous reports including timesheets reports. 

ActivityTimeline has integration with Advanced Roadmaps as well.


If you have any additional requirements please feel free to ask me. We can provide a demo session for you if needed.
Best, Nataliya, ActivityTimeline Team
