Is it possible to create "dummy" team members to plan/forecast effort for unknown team members?

is it possible to create team members, that basically serve as a dummy (no Jira user behind) such that we can plan/forecast efforts and adjust our staffing accordingly based on the workload?

Hi Marco - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Thanks for the quick and helpful reply!
