BigPicture 8.4 is here! Deeper integration with Jira and improved clarity of information

We’re happy to present the newest version of BigPicture and BigGantt - 8.4. We were focused on creating an easier, more intuitive tool that requires even less time to master and unleash its full potential. We have further improved the usability, and accessibility, followed by significant improvements in the Portfolio Management aspects to make them even more powerful.

Even easier planning and scope management

Scope Management becomes smoother than ever, thanks to deeper integration with Jira. In BigPicture and BigGantt 8.4, all your work item structures built and modified within the app sync with Jira automatically. You can edit your scope structures at any time and see those changes in Jira immediately.

Also, you can convert your BigPicture or BigGantt “basic tasks” into Jira issues in just a few clicks, so your sketch plans can be easily transformed into the actual ones.

Additionally, your favorite Quick Filters are becoming even more accessible, and you can always have them available at hand. You can arrange the order in which the Quick Filters are displayed on the list with a simple drag and drop technique. You can get instant access to the relevant data without scrolling and searching.

The Board module of BigPicture is getting a huge upgrade with the in-line editing of team capacity directly in it. The updated values, such as closed or reopened tasks, sync automatically with all relevant contexts. Monitoring execution of these tasks has become yet more intuitive with the help of visualized work ratios in the form of status bars. Just a quick glance, and you know your initiative's status.

Portfolio management - improved reporting and new report types

Overview columns in BigPicture and BigGantt, such as Status, Budget, Actual Cost, and Estimated Cost, can be grouped by new outlines. These are status categories, a status category in percentage, or status in percentage. You can review key indicators and get the big picture of work progress, and the overall health of your initiatives at a glance and optimize your portfolio accordingly.

With BigPicture Enterprise you can get even more control over your initiatives thanks to two new report types: Milestones & Markers table, and Velocity bar chart. The former allows users to generate a report showing milestones or generate a report showing markers for the selected period. The latter, Velocity bar chart, is a report showing Velocity & Sprint Plan for iterations.

This version of the BigPicture suite - 8.4 - is a continuation of our effort to create even more intuitive and accessible apps, suited for many different needs and ideas of our users. Every new version of our suite brings even more to the table and, as usual, more is yet to come.
