WBS Gantt Chart - How to auto organize the tasks for the same resource


I'm not an advanced user of Gantt-like software, but I'm used to setting up the three basic things: Task duration, dependencies, and resource distribution.

I'm testing the WBS Gantt Chart for Jira and it's quite nice. The problem here is I assigned the same resource for 2 different tasks and both tasks still on the same day. I was hoping it would adjust it automatically, moving one of them forward in time, like what happens with dependencies or like other Gantt software.

The question is: Did I miss some (obvious) set up in this process? Or is there a refresh command or something like this to change it?

Hello, @mango 

Thank you for bringing this behavior to our attention and creating this Community Question. We can see that you have created a ticket on our Support environment as well, so we will paste our reply to this Community Question to help similar users with the same issue:

"WBS Gantt-Chart does not re-schedule Tasks based on the Resources of an Assignee.

In this case, based on the screenshot attached, to have the second Task starting after the first one, you need to create a Dependency between these 2 Tasks.

For more information regarding Resources Allocation and Dependencies on WBS Gantt-Chart, please visit our Documentation."

If you need assistance with our plugins or have any other questions, please contact us anytime at I will be happy to help.

We wish you a great day!

Exactly same issue!

This should be a P0 bug since it renders auto-scheduling and resource leveling useless.

See sub-tasks AI-1900 and AI-1926 are creating an overallocation.

The support answered me. It is not possible.


 Best regards.
