I'm trying to use BigPicture for to plan at a high-level if the project is deliverable.
I have a bunch of Jira tickets raised, organised by Epics.
I was thinking to use Artificial Tasks, as well as Fix Versions that I prefer, because they get synchronized on the Jira ticket itself.
Question 1 - Fix Version Synchronization:
I have the following Synchronisers on:
The Automatic Task Structure is configured in the order of Project, Epic, Version, component, subtask.
The problem is that when I update the Version and add/remove items, 'Re-synch' option doesn't pick up the changes. Moreover, when i added more features into the Fix Version, the dates of the release got randomly reset.
Any advise here?
Question 2 - Task Start-End synchronisation
When i created Jira tasks, they had no estimate. I think start and end date were populated automatically. I've created dependencies between tasks, e.g. Task A depends on Task B etc. To be that means, that task A can't be started before Task B is complete. However i can't see how i can reasonably see that reflected on the gantt Chart. I would expect red arrows to be used, but instead the dependent becomes a child... that's not right.
More to that, if i amend the duration of the task in Gantt Chart by drag-and-dropping, it doesn't reflect in the Resources section of the screen which is still using the arbitrary start/end date of the original task. And the task start-end date don't get affected either.
Question 3 - work allocation
I have about 15 team members, all of them with some special powers, and i've used Teams to specify it. Some people have more than one power, so i can assign them 50/50 or similar.
I would like to allocate teams, and occasionally individuals, to calculate my real capacity. What is the easiest and simplest way to do this, with the combination of the above?
