Resource Allocation while Iteration/Sprint Planning

* We want to see resource allocation in term of %, Over-allocated or under-allocated in specific Iteration while doing sprint planning.

* Sprint Planner or manager will plan resource (Developer/QA) based on resource and hours, we will add task in Sprint and allocate to resource. Want to see view that which resource is allocated fully or %

*Also during review we want to see that Iteration is not getting complete because of which resource, (Which resource is not completed their own task timely).

Can you please guide me how to achieve same in JIRA Agile?

The amount of scheduled work is displayed on a timeline interface and workload indicator per each person. Add-on is available at:
