Auto-scheduling and resource leveling? BigPicture?

I have been testing add-ons to help us with our roadmap automated scheduling. Currently trying BigPicture and it is not clear to me that this tool provides automated resource leveling at this time? 

We've also tried Advanced Roadmaps (which falls short) and Structure which doesn't offer this in their Cloud version. What are folks using to plan inside of Jira?

Hi @Janene Pappas 

ActivityTimeline plugin is a resource planning tool that includes an Auto-Scheduling option. The feature is based on a user's estimate and available assignee. 


If you have any additional requirements please feel free to ask me. We can provide a demo session for you if needed.
Best, Nataliya, ActivityTimeline Team

Hi @Janene Pappas

I am glad to hear that you gave a try to BigPicture.

Please be informed that the BigPicture team is intensively working on implementing new features that will support resource-leveling. I enclose a link to a story that directly refers to a mechanism that automatically will stretch overlapping tasks to avoid resource overallocation. 
You can follow the feature request ticket: ONE-2669. Please note that it is best to open it in the incognito tab of your browser.

Hi @Janene Pappas

None of the tools will autoschedule for you.

We actually sit down with teams and plan what will be completed on the next sprint or pi. Autoscheduling based on capacity will be very messy.


We need this capability for longer term planning, attempting to get away from Microsoft Project.
