Looking for a capacity planning tool for Jira? Well, that’s where the Planyway addon can give you a hand. Dive deeper in our quick guide and see how to manage team capacity in a couple of minutes.

Step 3. Balance workload

Set up Original estimate in Jira and switch to the Workload tab. The workload indicators above issues will tell you if someone is over or underloaded.

You can simply stretch issues to the right and left to recalculate hours and balance workload.

Step 4. Optimize estimates

In order to make better estimation in the future, ask your team to use the Planyway time tracker. Having the information about how much time was really spent on work will help you improve your estimations further.
