BigPicture add on, Gantt view, edit column directly


we are currently using Jira + BigPicture for project planing.

Our project team is hard to convince to move to BigPicture because they can't edit columns directly.

Is there an add on or option to do this? Similar functionality is in ProjectLibre.

Even few field would be enough, like task name, start and end date.

Hi All,

Right now inline editing is under development and will be introduced gradually throughout BigPicture modules starting with Scope. See the ticket on our side:

Unfortunately we are unable to give an estimate when it will be implanted. Please review the ticket every now and then and watch the Fix version field for something that starts with "prod/" which will mean it has been released.

Hi All, 
Please be informed that inline editing of numeric and string types of fields is available. However, at the moment, we experience an error that our Dev Team is fixing. Soon you will be able to update your tasks by inline editing again.

Moreover, the following fields will be supported in the upcoming releases:

  • Date,
  • Time tracking estimates,
  • Assignee.

If you have further questions, please let me know in this thread.

I have the same problem - found a solution?

It's possible to create different prospective for them to see. In that prospective they can define the column. 

I have a simular issue. Is there a solution available now? 

Same problem. Is there a solution available now?

I looked back at the ticket in Is it true that this feature dates back to 2015, and five years later it is still undone? I am comparing with WBS Gantt-Charts, and that's a feature they have that works great, but sadly for their cloud version, the information isn't stored in the issues fields, so it isn't as clear as with BigGantt/BigPicture.

Same issue here, we are going to choose WBS Gantt-Charts for the quick editing of fields direcly on the chart, without editing the single tasks in Jira. Is there any idea on the delivery of this feature in BigPicture?

Why not use Scope? If you like rearranging your column views, Scope is the module to use. See the image below showing how easy it is to add new fields to column views:

The issue, or what is being requested, is not adding columns to a view. What is being requested is the ability to edit the field values directly from the BigPicture table UI. This is currently enabled for the Issue Summary field, but not others (I have not checked them all). 

This is functionality offered by other apps but IMO those apps are not as good as BP in many other areas.
