We are converting to Advanced Roadmaps from the old Portfolio. But in our teem we see some change behavior regarding "Auto-schedule".
We have a lot of estimated issues (grouped in Epics) and when we use "Auto-schedule" a lot of issues (with the same assignee) and with estimates longer than a day, get the same "Start Date", as if the same person could work on multiple tasks at the same time.
Have others experienced the same and a way to fix it?
Both the Start date and Due date are calculated simultaneously with the auto-scheduler which looks at the totality of all assigned work items and schedules for not just when they can be started and ended meaning that no 1 work item (issue) is scheduled independently and multiple items can start and the same date. The algorithm will account for the total days/hours needed and propose a Due date accordingly.
In scenarios where the work items should be scheduled individually and no 2 items should be worked on at the same time, this is where you would need to implement a dependency type of schedule which is done by adding Dependencies to the Issues so that one item cannot be started before completing the previous one and so forth which is what I believe would be ideal for your use case so that 2 issues can't have the same Start date.
