I really like the Gantt chart in BigPicture (or the BigGantt plugin) but I have always wondered how to use the board view together with te Gantt view.
When placing a Jira issue in an program increment on the board it does not move on the gantt chart.
Example: I have a ticket ABC-123. I placed it in a program increment which has a start date on 2020-11-12 and end date 2021-01-13.
However ABC-123 has not moved on the gantt. It start date still is 2021-02-14.
Hello @Charlie Misonne
To activate synchronization between Board and Gantt, you must enable Task Period alignment. Here you have 2 options available so that you can adjust task alignment to your actual business needs. Both settings are recommended for agile and non-agile teams who want to use BigPicture as a Roadmap tool and present their plans using the Gantt module.
Precise alignment means that a task's period will align exactly with the box's period. The fields mapped as start and end dates will get updated to match the boxes' start and end dates when a task is planned in one of the time boxes.
While Smart adjustment, a task's period will align to the start or end date of the Box without changing the task's duration (if possible). The fields mapped as start and end dates will get updated when a task is planned in one of the Sprint, such that the task will start on the start date of the Sprint or end on the end date of the Sprint.
Regardless of the selected alignment type, transferring a task to another sprint will always be reflected on the Gantt chart.
If you have further questions, please let me know.
Have you refreshed the screen ... other one I've done is the powerup remembers the stuff, so you can unload the power up, put another in for a while, then reload and it remembers association.
I use AGEING power up normally, but BIG PICTURE occasionally, and just swap between them both.
Give it a try, or maybe copy the board first and do in a copy.
