The Tempo Folio for JIRA team has yet again been hard at work to bring to you some great new features in 10.1 that have been highly requested from our customers. This release focuses on giving Project Managers and PMO the ability to quickly identify who is over allocated and make changes as easily as possible within problem solving time. The new features include an issue planned time view, member planned time view, and enhanced portfolio reporting.
Issue Planned Time View
The first new feature gives you the option to quickly view the breakdown of planned time on an issue per staff member. This allows you to easily view what work is planned on any issue and who is working on it.
Getting to this view is simple. When you’re in the planned tab of the staff section, you can now click the hours next to the issue name in the righthand column. These numbers indicate the amount of time planned on that issue and the total estimated effort needed to complete the issue.
When you click on the hours, a page that looks like this will pop up.
Here you can see which members are working on that particular issue and exactly how much time is allocated to them for that issue. In a glance, you can see if there is enough, not enough, or too much time planned on any one issue.
Tip: As you can see, the start and end dates next to the member are also clickable. If you click on these dates, it will take you back to the planning timeline and show the allocations for that date.
Member Planned Time View
Another new feature is that next to each team member in the planning timeline, you will now see a number indicating their remaining capacity, which is circled in orange below. If they are over allocated, this number will be in red for easy identification.
What’s even better is you can click on this number and you’ll be presented with the member planned time view, as you can see below. This gives you a quick overview of an individual staff member and what they’re working on broken down by issue.
This enables project managers to quickly identify if a staff member is over allocated, or perhaps under allocated and easily make changes as they see fit.
We’re big fans of customization, so we’ve implemented changes to the portfolio reports and added the ability to customize them even more than before. The expenses report has been enhanced, allowing you to now filter the report by folios. This makes it possible to see the data for as many or as little of the folios associated with the portfolio as you like, depending on your needs.
On top of this, you can now select all or none of the options from a particular category, making filtering less of a hassle.
