Hi Giovanni,

That's a good question. Tempo Timesheets and Planner are quite different although they have some similar features. Tempo Timesheets is mainly for logging work in JIRA, generating reports on that work, it allows you to manage teams centrally as well as customers and their accounts. It will cover any of your time / work logging needs. It will also allow you to plan on issues to a certain extent. Individuals can make plans for themselves and Team Leaders are also able to plan/allocate (not to be confused with Assignee) for their team members. The planning features of Timesheets are quite limited but will be enough for some use cases.

Tempo Planner on the other hand is a much more comprehensive planning tool. It will allow teams to plan their work in a great planning interface, they can do long term planning on projects and short term planning for individual issue. Sprint planning is a big part of Tempo Planner allowing you to manage sprints (and create sprints without JIRA Agile) and assign issues within sprints to team members based on their actual availability (lots of things can affect a persons availability).

Tempo Planner will also enable you to get a higher level view of your plans, where you can group your teams together into so called Programs. In the program view you can lay out roadmaps for your teams and projects, get an overview plan health and progress as well as insights into the capacity of your teams and when they will be able to take on the next project.

I hope this answer will clarify the difference between the two add-ons.
