Tempo's Best of the Best — Our Developers' Favorite Tempo Planner Features

With the product release of our new Tempo Planner add-on for JIRA imminent, and the development of the product in full swing, we were curious to learn more about Tempo Planner from our developers' perspectives. What better way to get to know about the product than by learning first-hand from the team that built it?

We asked our Tempo Planner development team which product feature is their favorite. Here’s what they had to say:

Guðleifur Kristjánsson

Gúlli is an experienced developer who is the ScrumMaster for the Tempo Planner team. He’s in charge of organizing tasks for the team, making sure that the team reaches their deadlines and objectives, and developing the product.

What’s your favorite Tempo Planner feature? The Planner Timeline's recurrence and refinement settings.

Why is it your favorite? They offer extensive and complex features giving the user great control over allocation functionality.

Are you currently working on its development? Yes.

Árni Freyr Snorrason

Árni Freyr is one of Tempo’s most promising software developers. He’s been working hard on developing features for the Tempo Planner, which he hopes will hit the spot with prospective customers.

What’s your favorite Tempo Planner feature? My favorite feature is the Allocation Sidebar.

Why is it your favorite? It allows me to access more detailed information on my allocation, and it also gives me access to further allocation functionality, such as splitting and repeating the allocation.

Are you currently working on its development? Yes, and will continue making it better and better!

Lúðvík Snær Hermannsson

Lúlli is a talented software developer who has been developing the Planner since the beginning. He believes that users will come to love the Tempo Planner once it will be released.

What’s your favorite Tempo Planner feature? The Planner's recurrence allocations.

Why is it your favorite? If I have a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly assignment that I know I have to work on, I can make a recurring allocation on the Planner Timeline, and the timeline makes allocations with that rule until I don’t need it anymore. It’s easy and user friendly.

Are you currently working on its development? Yes.
