BigPicture PM Box Configuration Alignment to Gantt


Is there anyway to align a box start and end date in BigPicture PM with the start date of the first task (issue) and the end date of the last task (issue) within the gantt (schedule)?

Hi @MA

Currently, there is a possibility to adjust the start and end dates of the task assigned to a Box (or sub-Box) so that they start and finish within the Box period (Precise Alignment or Smart Adjustment).

However, in the coming release BigPicture 8.1, we are going to introduce scheduling automation that should be the answer to your needs. It will allow a Box period to be automatically calculated based on the periods of all the tasks in the scope.

Please have a look at the planned feature. Please note that it is best to open it in the incognito tab of your browser.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks @Anna-SoftwarePlant 

This is exactly my use case.

Can I vote for this new feature?

Hi @MA

I am glad that the suggested feature will meet your expectation.

Please note, that voting is important in the initial phase when we gather customer feedback to get the overall idea of what the demand for such compatibility is.

The good news is that the development works on the feature were already completed and currently, it's waiting for the release. We are planning to introduce BigPicture 8.1 on the Marketplace in the coming months.

You can just add a milestone.

Thanks @Brant Schroeder 

But what I am trying to do is to automtically adjust the start and end dates on the box configuration to align with the first and last tasks in the gantt rather than just have a milestone to show the project end date in the gantt chart.
