BigPicture Gantt Task Inclusions

Edited

I'm new to BigPicture--trying to learn my way around.  I've create a task sync rule to include a Jira filter.  Scope Definition shows "21 tasks in scope".  When I show the tasks in the Gantt view, there are only 16 tasks listed.  What can further filter the Gantt view?  

FWIW, the missing issues do show in the WBS widget on the Issue page.

Hi @Steve Randolph

I am happy to hear that you have chosen BigPicture! 

Would you please be able to confirm if you still face problems with your plugin? If so, please provide more details (preferably supported by screenshots of Scope Definition and Gantt chart) so that I am able to shed more light on your doubts. Thank you!

Yes, it's still a problem/question.  21 tasks in Scope.  15 tasks displayed on Gantt.  Re-sync doesn't change anything.

The missing issues do show in the WBS widget on the Issue page, but do not show when “Enable WBS when issue is not in any Box” switch is off.  Seems like the issue is not in a Box.  So, maybe my question is how can a task in the Program Box’s Scope Definition be filtered out of the Box’s Gantt chart?

Hi @Steve Randolph

Indeed, on the screenshot, there 15 issues displayed. However, there are 3 issues (Prototype reports + 2x Oracle Apex Install) that are collapsed, and their children are not displayed. Please expand those tasks by clicking on the arrow as on my image below and let me know if the total number of issues in scope is 21.

Now I really feel stupid.  Thanks for pointing that out!

BigPicture is a comprehensive tool, and therefore it's good to address every question. I am sure that more people had this issue, and thanks to your question, users will know what to check in the first place in case of inaccuracies in the number of issues in scope.

Have a wonderful day!
