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.
Thank, you @Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ ! I appreciate the response. I may have to give that a try. I hear good things about Tempo.
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
Thank you, @Nataliya Vasyliv !
Very interesting! Thank you for responding to me question. I may have to try out Activity Timeline if its available for trial use.
