Resource Planning / Forecasting


In jira advance roadmap are we able to use placeholder resources for planning out future project / initiatives?  EG:

We have a shared team and we're not sure what resource will be assigned in the future but are just trying to capacity plan for projects not yet started.  Are we able to put a placeholder in there to forecast?  I thought I remember seeing someone do that under jira portfolio back in the day.

Hello @Jeremy Janas 


In our solution, ActivityTimeline, we actually allow to create Virtual Resources that could represent new potential employees, show lack of resources, or allow to plan for non-human resources like equipment or rooms.


Here is an article on our website about it:

@Jeremy Janas 

The old interface had virtual users for this, but they don't exist any more in the new interface.

Advanced Roadmaps currently doesn't use team members for anything other than calculating capacity based on the number of members. That means it's fine to put N random members into a private or shared team for planning purposes.

In the future, Advanced Roadmaps will use team membership for more fine-grained capacity planning (E.g. on the member level).

I'd suggest using a private/plan-scoped team for this.
