We are currently evaluating the JIRA Role Based Estimations and Tracking plugin as we really need to split our estimates by developer/QA and probably other roles in the future.
I've implemented the feature and so far it looks good on the issue screen, however I cannot see how to estimate by user for the upcoming sprints:
In sprint planning I need to see what each user has been assigned so that we don't overcommit someone beyond their capacity. Currently this is working on the Original Estimate field, which shows everything. I've tried to change this in the Board setup, but there is no field to select the Developer estimate only. I've tried to use the issue search to show me the estimates of a person assigned in the sprint, but I can't filter by issues assigned using the assigned to (by roles) field, and I can't see the appropriate estimate in the results only. What I need is something like the Estimated Sprint Workload report, but this only works for open sprints, I need it for planned ones. I also cannot access this report on a board where more than one project is in use, which is a blocker for us. All our sprints/boards (except one) use more than one project.
Is there any way to achieve something like we have at the top of a sprint now in the backlog per user, but using the estimations by roles?:
Thanks for suggesting the feature. From what I can understand, you guys want the Remaining Sprint Workload and Estimated Sprint Workload to have all of the sprints included.
There are a few limitations from JIRA, which cause us to not have these two reports on the boards created from multiple projects, but we can definitely add these two pages as a report too. Please allow us some time to add them.
The plugin you have mentioned is a bit too vast to cover as a single feature in our plugin. We do have workload report for sprints from agile boards.
We can definitely have a look at making it work for version release dates, so it works with Kanban boards too.
Let us know your specifics about the feature so we can take a better look at it.
