It's a long read, but I'm hoping others are trying to leverage their investment in Portfolio, and are willing to engage in this topic.
Modeling plans and resources in Portfolio
Current Understanding / Attempts
Projects When many Projects affect many Products, we would like to know when a specific Project is jeopardizing the release of a given Product. “Release” dependencies in Portfolio are limited to a Project/Board – it does not seem possible to make Projects depend on one another.
Option 1 – Create a cross-functional release across for the Product
Option 2 – Put fixed dates on all projects, if any of them show “Red” - the Product releases they contribute to are in Jeopardy
Option 3 – Task level dependency between Projects ( this is a more generalized implementation of https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Portfolio-for-Jira-questions/How-to-make-portfolio-repect-the-release-order/qaq-p/742666
Staff loading across projects seems to be a missing feature – we’d like know who is over/under-utilized based the hours we enter per project. There appears to be no way to set the global availability of a person, and then determine if the assumed allocation across projects is within the global availability.
Options 1 - create a custom report from the underlying database – what are the options? How do we get insight into the schema?
