BigPicture automatic End Date


In my program i have my task configuration set to use Start date (Start Date) and  Original Estimate as (duration / estimation of the task). However, I cannot find a nice solution to automatically prolong or shorten the end date without doing that manually.

Use case 1:

You need the correct mapping of the Start/End date in your task configuration.

Change the end date to use the Time Spent + Remaining Estimate field.

To access the task configuration:

  1. Jira home page
  2. Jira settings
  3. Apps
  4. Task configuration under big picture

Use case 2: 

We have a feature request ticket for automated resource leveling:

Resource leveling

Hi Patrice,

I cannot be sure what you mean by automatically but the synchronization is bidirectional, meaning that if you change the Start date or the OE manually in Jira on the issue page the plugin will "see the change" (after the page refresh) and adjust the task bar accordingly. Similarly if you move or resize the task within the Gantt view the same changes to Start date and OE will be populated to Jira . 

Please feel free to contact us through our support portal and share more details of your use case and we will do our best to help you configure your plugin to suit your needs.

I hope the information helped.

I will contact you!


I opened a support ticket (320016). I will keep track here of the information to help fellow users...

Here are more information regarding the uses cases:

1) When a new task is created with an original estimate (ex: 4 days), the task duration in big picture is always of 1 day. I need to zoom in and manually resize the task the number of days of the estimate. If the estimate change, big picture doesn't resize the task to the number of days in the estimate. The task end date need to be done manually

2) I have a task of 1 day and I assign a ressource available 50% of the time. I need to adjust manually the task to two days to level my ressource correctly. It would be nice if there could be a mode that allow big picture to automatically adjust the end date of a task depending on the ressource availlability that has been assign to the task.

Let me know if there is a way to achieve the previous uses cases or if it's a feature that is in the pipeline.

Let me know if you need more information

Best regards.
