Am trying to find a way to do "high level resource planning" with this plug-in. I'm not interested (yet) in detailed task planning which would assign issues/time to individual users. Rather, I'm interested in assigning an issue (overall a set of issues) and associated effort to team(s) of folks, without having to do so individually.
In our development process, an issue may impact multiple "teams", e.g.
and require effort from each (as shown) to complete. Imagine a release with 100 such issues needing to be scoped/planned against a finite but aggregated resource set and you get the picture.
I've tried to create "fictious users" representing "groups", but one cannot over-subscribe/plan effort beyond 100 hours per issue, nor can one define more than 24 hours / day of allocable workload capacity per user, so that doesn't work well.
Defining teams of users doesn't help, because work must still be planning individually per member, even if by a team leader/manager.
I want to assign blocks of work (issues) against blocks of resource (teams) over time, but "coarsely" for initial work scoping and capacity planning. Later on I'd come along, remove those reservations and replace with a real detailed plan of work.
Any shortcuts or ways to "trick" Tempo into enabling what I seek?
Thanks in advance,
Thanks for the response. I could not find a workaround.
This would make the Tempo far more useful for larger orgs. Oddly enough there are ways to do things well for detailed planning without Tempo, but no good options yet for what I'm seeking. JIRA is great in a microcosm but limited in high level abstraction. So too Tempo for now.
OK... now I'm getting it... I thought that Planner was intended to be a new function added in Timesheet. If you're saying it's different, then I've never seen it and would like to...
I recently started an OnDemand trial with JIRA 6.0 and Tempo, mainly just to play with the latest Tempo version and see what is there. What can I do to get an early look? I also have a standalone instance in a Sandbox here of JIRA 5.2.6.
Thanks for the interest. It will be available in early access to those signed up to the list on http://www.tempoplugin.com/products/tempo-planner/
It will require JIRA 6. At least the early access version. OnDemand does not accept new plugins so it is unlikely it will be available there anytime soon.
