Portfolio 3.0 - auto schedule vs assignee


When I do automatic planning - how is the assignee taken into consideration? will it always keep the same assignee but make sure that they are not over-allocated? is there any place that explains well how it is done?

By the way - I see that issues are always assigned to the size of a sprint, so that even if I think an issue takes 2d if my sprint is 2w, it will be allocated for the entire 2w, is this something that's going to stay?

Hi @Ron Grosberg

Yes, the assignee is taken in consideration and is not re-assigned by the scheduler. Scheduler algorithm does its best to not overbook a person when assigning previously unassigned issues to them. However, Portfolio 3.0 doesn't support individual capacity yet and each assignee gets an equal share of team capacity.

> I see that issues are always assigned to the size of a sprint

In a Scrum sprint, issues are delivered at the end of the sprint, hence they are shown as size of the sprint by the scheduler. We do not have any plans to change this at the moment. You can manually adjust issue size in the roadmap if you wish.

Portfolio for Jira Server Team

Thanks! that's good to know. I have a lot of experience from my previous job in trying to manage a roadmap for a group (I had ~35 people) I really hope that with the new portfolio we will be able to use everything inside jira as using multiple tools is really a pain in the neck...

Is there a roadmap I can see of what's coming when?
