The plan view has a special panel for VERSIONS and EPICS -- is is possible to group tasks by ASSIGNEE?
I have see the more general quesion:
Although this would help, quickly showing tasks by Assignee would help evaluate team resource distribution.
There isn't a way of grouping them by Assignee in the Plan Mode.
You could create a Filter by user though and filter the Plan Mode with that.
I believe this is basically because in the plan mode, the idea is to determine the tasks that will be going to the sprint depending on the estimates of each task, priorities, team capacity, etc. Then you can move to the Work Mode and you'll have all the issues on the TO DO column at the left. At that time you can assign work individually and you'll be able to see the amount of work per person.
In plan mode you can still click on each issue and see the detail on the Right with the Assignee but there is no grouping possible that I am aware of.
Hope that helps.
This makes sense for larger organizations with dedicated teams by discipline, but it makes it difficult for small cross functional groups. If all the tasks in the sprint are going to programmers, my artists and designers are twiddling their thumbs. Also, within those groups people have specialties making a department filter less valuable.
But you cannot view in work mode until you already committed to the sprint. Is there a way to view who was assigned what prior starting the sprint? We like to assign issues in the planning meeting and it is hard to see what has been assigned without switching screens back and forth.
Yes, the icon at the right of the issue in the Plan mode shows you who is assigned to the task. See Using Plan Mode
For more details you can click the issue to display it fully without leaving the Plan board but the idea in when planning is to select the amount of work depending on the team's capacity. Usually the asignement of tasks is done when the Sprint is started by each individual by grabing them from the Work mode. http://guide.agilealliance.org/guide/sign-up-for-tasks.html
