JIRA Portfolio for Resource Management

Hello there,
I am evaluating JIRA portfolio to determine whether we can use it for resource management. I have created Sample JIRA Portfolio Plan. What should I do to answer the following questions in the Sample JIRA Portfolio Plan?

1. What project George from the Beatles team (sample JIRA Portfolio plan) will work in a particular month/week?
2. What is George (Beatles Team) utilization in the month of April 2015?
3. How much is George available in month of April 2015?
4. Is there any developer with a particular skill available in the month of April 2015?

Please advise.

These are very good questions but perhaps only Atlassian has the experience right now to answer them

I have these and similar questions. JIRA Portfolio seems to assume that I want to get everything done ASAP. But what I really want to do is schedule a task and spread it out over a set period of time. I want to use this leeway to forecast capacity over time because all of my start dates and deadlines have external determinants.
