Best app for Capacity Planning and Resource Management

Hi,

I currently have some problems with my capacity/resource planning for my team. we are a team of 20 and I manage the day-to-day activities of all the projects and I would like to see a real-time report of the resources assigned to each project and how long. This will help me point out if I have over-allocated tasks to a team member and better plan their roster for future projects.

we're currently using Tempo Timesheets, cost tracker and resource planning. The timesheet and cost tracker are fine, however I really don't like the resource planning feature, it has a lot of bugs and really don't integrate well

While browsing the marketplace I found "Activity Timeline" app to be a good replacement for Tempo resource planning. But I could not filter the resource by Projects instead I can only see the tasks assigned to them.

  1. Is there anyway to filter the Capacity planning by Projects?
  2. Have you used other apps for Capacity/Resource planning which has the option to filter the resources used by Project?

P.S - If anyone have used Asana previously, I'm trying to achieve a similar output to their capacity planning report

Thanks

Hello @Surya Durai

 

I am Ostap from Reliex / ActivityTimeline Team, thanks for the great questions!

 

Basically, in ActivityTimeline you can achieve the desired result in 2 ways:

1. Create Project Teams - this will allow seeing users that are assigned to issues from the chosen project.

Here is a great article on how you can do this:

2. Use Automatic Team & Project FilterYou can choose "Automatic Team" in the dropdown and then filter for a specific project, this will only show you the people that are involved in that project:

I hope this answers your question, but if you have any additional questions to discuss, I encourage you to schedule a free demo session with our Product experts so they could go through your use case and answer any existing questions.

Hi @Surya Durai

Taking into account your requirements, BigPicture seems to be a good match for your needs. The Resources module provides all crucial, real-time information to manage resources both at project and portfolio levels but also can give an insight into resource utilization on a PI/Sprint level. 
 
You can display capacity, remaining capacity, and allocation both on the individual and Team level, which allows precise analysis of the consumption of currently utilized resources and forecasted availability. Data are color-coded what helps in the quick identification of both overallocation and under- allocation.

Using different effort modes, you can analyze resource consumption, currently utilized resources as well as forecasted availability. 
Additionally, I encourage you to become familiar with our article: Managing Resources with BigPicture Enterprise
Please let me know if you have more specific questions.

Hi @Surya Durai

It's Tania from the Planyway team. Perhaps Planyway could be a good match for your case? All you need to do is to define the working hours of your team and estimate tasks. To filter by projects, tick the projects in the sidebar:
