Managing workload in Planyway for Jira
Make resource planning as easy as never before by optimizing your team workload based on the daily capacity
Define work hours
To define the daily capacity of team members, open Planyway settings and choose the number of working hours per day.
Working hours settings apply to all projects and to the whole team, and can’t be defined per individual member or project.
Add estimations to issues
To be able to calculate a team’s workload, you have to estimate how much time tasks could take.
The total estimation will be equally divided by the number of days a task lasts. To learn more about estimation, take a look at Jira’s documentation about configuring estimation and tracking.
Visualize workload on the timeline
To see the daily workload per team member, find the Workload tab on top of the Planyway timeline/calendar. To visualize how much time cards were estimated to complete and how much time was logged on them, turn on the corresponding fields.
The workload is visible on a daily scale only. If you zoom out till weeks, months or quarters, the workload will disappear from the view.
By stretching scheduled items to a side, you can change their duration and therefore, optimize the workload to make sure it doesn’t exceed the daily capacity.
