Hi Team,

How to disable Auto bottom up and Auto top down options in big picture program

We have a requirement that only manual option will be visible and reaming 2 options I,e. Auto bottom up and Auto top down options should be disabled.

Is it possible in big picture program?

Hi @kanaka prasad ponnuru

You can set the period mode for each of the Boxes in Box Configuration > Tasks > Scheduling. To access this page you need the Box Administrator security role.

Please note that the period mode applies to newly created tasks only. A newly created task is added to the scope of a Box for the first time. If the task is already within the scope of any Box, its period mode will not be overwritten.

Moreover, in Administration >> Box types, you can determine default settings applicable to multiple Boxes (all Boxes of a given type). Those settings are adjusted in Box type administration.

This option specifies a default configuration for newly created Boxes of this type.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Hi @Anna-SoftwarePlant ,

Thank you for your response.

Here my team's only concern is that whenever a program box is created , any other user is able to change the period mode at anytime which causes a lot of problems as we need to again change it to manual mode which is our default preferred mode of tasks/program box. My requirement is no user should be able to change from manual to auto bottom-up/top-bottom/lock .

I would like to have any workaround if currently this is not feasible as this issue is of critical importance which needs to addressed at earliest.

Hi @kanaka prasad ponnuru

Thank you for your feedback. It's really precious for us.
Our PM Team has analyzed your request, and we do understand the need for disabling auto-scheduling.

You can follow the functionality development works in the feature request ticket ONE-35418. Please note that it is best to open it in the incognito tab of your browser.

Meanwhile, I would like to suggest a workaround: you can map the Period Mode as Jira field and force 'Manual' value through the automation scripts - e.g.: by Scriptrunner or Automation for Jira.
