Hi @Anneliese Pretorius 

Activity Timeline is a great option in your case! 

This plugin offers features to help you plan out and schedule the workload for your team.

  • Capacity planning: managers and team members can easily access important data related to their workload and capacity with the multi-functional indicator. The indicator is color-coded to help them become more productive and efficient.
  • Availability: on the Workload indicator you can check resource availability instantly when scheduling the tasks.
  • Cross-teams view: plugin delivers wide visualization in order for you to comprehend how to manage your teams more effectively. 
  • Planning and org structure view: you can select multiple teams and schedule the tasks between users-teams in one timeline view.
  • Accessibility: you can customize the settings of who can have the access to the system.

 If you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask me. We can provide a demo session for you if need it.    

@Yuliia Hushcha _Reliex_ Still looks like I need to apply / work in scrum with sprints, NOT a straight business project in Work Management

@Anneliese Pretorius I’d like to clarify that ActivityTimeline is designed to be flexible and can be tailored to meet your specific requirements. While it does support agile methodologies like scrum and sprints, it’s not limited to them and fully supports Team Managed projects created in Work Management section of Jira Software.

Would you be interested in a quick demo to see how it can work for your projects?

@Yuliia Hushcha _Reliex_ A demo would be great, thank you. Based in BST time zone.

@Anneliese Pretorius great! You could choose a convenient time for free demo session here:)

Hi @Anneliese Pretorius


I suggest that you consider Planyway plugin for Jira that will help you get what you are after.


After setting working hours across the team and adding time estimations to tasks, you will be able to see in percentages the free time that each teammate has on their hands and allocate or redistribute the workload accordingly. The overallocated hours will be shown as well.


Furthermore, by stretching scheduled items to a side, you can change their duration and therefore, optimize the workload to make sure it doesn’t exceed the daily capacity.


If you have any further questions, we can schedule a demo to showcase you the full capacity of the tool pared with your user case.
