If you’d like to visualize your Jira projects and team work, timeline is the best way to do it. It can give help with creating a product roadmap, resource planning and even building a project portfolio.
Planyway for Jira is the perfect app to bring the timeline view to your daily Jira workflow. First, it has the possibility to demonstrate data from different perspectives. Second, due to extra features, it allows you to use the timeline for managing team workload as well as improve task estimation based on time tracking.
Now, let’s see how you can create your own timeline with Planyway:
Planyway has three main types of timeline: basic, team timeline and project timeline. While basic timeline simply shows issues according to scheduled dates, team timeline allows you to group timeline by team members to manage resources and project timeline transforms the view into a project portfolio.
In order to adjust the timeline to your workflow, use scales. At any moment, you can switch from the daily to weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual views.
Scheduling issues on the timeline is super easy. Simply drag cards from the task list to the timeline to schedule. When you drag issues to the team timeline, you can assign them straight away if they are dragged to somebody’s lane.
If you add start and due date inside Jira cards, issues are visualized on the timeline automatically.
Subtasks can also be seen on the timeline and assigned to teammates. Just set dates and allocate them to people in Jira cards. At any moment, you may hide them from the timeline in Settings.
Team timeline is helpful for those who need to distribute new work pieces based on the current workload and availability. Additionally, you can open the Workload mode with indicators above issues that will help you balance the workload and make sure no one is overwhelmed.
In order to work with issues from multiple projects, just connect them in the main menu. This way you can keep track of several projects from a single page.
Releases and milestones will signal you about upcoming deadlines, so you never miss them. Also, releases have the progress bar that indicates how much work is done already, that makes it easier to understand if you’re going to meet the deadline or not.
If you’d like to avoid being overloaded with information and see only what you need at the moment, make use of filters to see only issues of certain type, status, or allocated to certain team members.
Your Planyway team ❤️
