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)?
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.
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.
Hi @Anna-SoftwarePlant ,
Is there anyway that we can view a BigPicture release schedule for bug fixes and new features. I have had a look through the BigPicture wiki and the Jira instance and can see the relevant Jira issue set to Done with a fix version. The bit I can't see is when the fix version is planned for release (and therefore available for users).
Can you advise?
I am sorry to say that I don't have the possibility to publicly share the BigPicture releases schedule with you.
However, as you noticed, the detailed information on the status & fix versions of a bug or feature request tickets are available a ticket itself. Please just provide me with a relevant ticket number or a fixed version, and I will share the planned release date with you.
In addition, please be informed that the next scheduled release is BigPicture 8.1, and it will be released this coming days. Check our overview page for more details.
@MAif something stays unclear or you have matters you want to ask for, I will gladly complete my reply.
Thanks @Anna-SoftwarePlant - It looks like the feature discussed in this thread is included in BigPicture 8.1 as per the overview provided. It would be good if the BigPicture 8.1 overview was made more prominent on your website, as without your link, I doubt I would have found it. Maybe it should be front and centre under the BigPicture product section.
The specific feature is referenced above, but for clarity, here it is Box start/end dates can result from its scope ("Auto scope-based" period mode)
Do you have the release date for this?
You are welcome @MA!
Thank you for your constructive feedback regarding the visibility of the Big Picture 8.1 overview page. Indeed, we plan to expose the information once version 8.1 is available on the Marketplace.
The feature: Box start/end dates can result from its scope ("Auto scope-based" period mode) will also be released in BigPicture 8.1 :) As you can see, the upcoming version will bring significant improvements.
Tag me if only you have further questions!
Have a nice day.
Only one more question @Anna-SoftwarePlant
Do you have the release date for 8.1 that you can share?
You did say in a previous comment that it will be released incoming days, but that's not really a date..... :)
Also you did mention that you could share the planned release date of the feature that I am particularly interested in. Yes I am keen for this feature.
Thanks in advance.
I actually have good news :) Today we started the upgrade of our cloud-hosted clients to the BigPicture 8.1 version. Both features we talked about in previous posts are included in this version.
So please keep an eye on your instance!
If you'd like me to check if you've already been upgraded, please write a message providing me with your base URL via our Service Desk.
