Vacation Planning / Resource?


I'm wondering if it is possible to plan vacations per resource in Big Picture (non-enterprise)?

I've tried everything and I can't seem to get this working but maybe I'm just missing something. If I set a week as non working days under BigPicture > Administration > Holiday Plan it applies to all users that are assigned to the Holiday Plan, but I would like that week to only apply to one of the users because its rare that all devs/qa would take vacations at the same time smile

I checked the documentation and noticed that there was a comment asking for this feature in 2015 and SoftwarePlant was working on it but I'm not sure if this was ever released? 

Thanks for the help!

This is an BP Enterprise feature - standard edition of BigPicture lets you define only a single holiday plan and workload plan. To create multiple ones, you have to be using BigPicture Enterprise.

Thank you for the prompt response Marek. I signed up for the trial of BigPicture Enterprise so I can try out the holiday plan per resource but I do have a question.

I created a default holiday plan which has all statutory holidays that apply to all users in JIRA. Now I also created separate holiday plans for each team member where each plan shows that team member's vacation. I'm assuming that for this holiday plan to take effect, the JIRA user corresponding to that holiday plan must be assigned to it correct?

If that is the case, when I assign a team member to the plan, and save that plan and then refresh the page, he is no longer assigned to the plan, is there something I am missing? 

Thanks for the help!

Is there any response on this?

I have found that a Resource can be assigned to a Holiday plan or a Custom plan, but not both at the same time.
