Why do only some of my issues have assignees?

Rather than use an existing board, I'm using a filter to create my Portfolio Plan. Once I've pulled in all my issues (stories, epics, tasks, subtasks), my next step is update the team (type, weekly capacity, and adding individual members). At this point I start getting visibility into each person's capacity – kind of. My issue is that only some of the issues show the assignee correctly, the rest are blank.

  • I get that Portfolio tries to auto-assign people, but is there a way to turn this off and pull in the existing assignee/estimate information?
  • If not, should assignees only be done within Portfolio? 

Could I be missing a configuration option somewhere?

It looks like I figured this out – if you go into the Configure options you can toggle from Scheduling Options from "Subtasks" to "Other" and they all show up.

The caveat is that ONLY assignee's show when there is an estimate on the ticket. The ones without still are blank.
