Help with setting up BigGantt

So we (a team of 6) have Jira Cloud free plan but need more granularity on Roadmaps and for now can't afford the Premium plan for Advanced Roadmaps.

I thought to try a Gantt app and have just installed the BigGantt. However I'm having no succes in getting this up and running with our already existing project data. We have only one project approx 100 issues..

Question: where and how do I map BigGantt agains this existing project? I can't find any easily interpretable documentation and our project has only default settings.

The first step is to create a Program Box in the Overview module. You can do that by clicking the "Add new" or "plus" icon. Please see my image as a reference.

Once it’s done, you will see a green popup with a link to the Scope definition.

When you click on “Configure scope now,” you will be transferred to Scope Definition. So two clicks, and you are in the place where you can define the scope of your Program. You mentioned that you would like to add the Jira Project. Please enter its name in the right field. See my image below.

Please let me know if there are other areas that you would like to discuss :)

Beautiful! This is exactly what I was after and as you said; two clicks and done!
Thanks again for your help and good luck with your products.

Hi @Dirk de Rooij

I am glad that you decided to explore BigGantt. It's a very comprehensive tool that makes project management easier!
In the beginning, I encourage you to watch our tutorial: How to manage Scope.

In case of further questions, just let me know in this thread. I will gladly help you!

Hi @Anna-SoftwarePlant, great that you repond so quickly!
I have watched the tutorial video with interest earlier, but the issue is that I cannot find where I should first configure BigGantt to load or synch with my data. Also the tutorial has the presumption that there is already data showing.. See my screen shot with no data yet whatsoever. I can also not find where I can select to have BigGantt Boxes point to the appropriate Jira Project...

So if you can point me in the right direction, then I'll try to continue from there..

Thanks again!
