I am a happy big picture user we’ve had the plugin for about 2 months.


I have some questions.


1.       Artificial tasks. If I create an artificial task is it only visible in that program?  The reason I ask is I have multiple programs (projects) which I have gantt charts for, but I also have a big picture view of all these projects which is driven from  a filter. If I create a artificial task it only displays in the program I create it. Is there any way around this?

2.       Artificial Tasks. Is there any way to create a quick filter to remove them from the view?

3.       Resource view. Is there any way to have a search for issue box in the resource view, like in the gantt view?

4.       In Jira its not possible to assign the same issue to multiple users. Is it possible to do this in resource view? i.e its assigned to one user but is also assigned via a custom field to a second/ third user?

  1. Not yet, as artificial tasks are indeed per-Program. Would it suit you if we added a button to easily convert artificial tasks to standard JIRA tasks, which would make them visible cross-Program?
  2. Not yet, though this is a very good idea! Added to our backlog and will keep you posted.

  3. Sure, added this to our backlog, as this is a rather obvious functionality that we somehow missed.

  4. Currently not, because Resources uses the JIRA Assignee field and therefore inherits its limitations. However, very soon we will add an option to use a multi-user picker custom field instead of Assignee.
