Scheduling issues is as easy as adding the duration for issues directly in your timeline. Alternatively, you can add target dates for the issues, and these dates will display in the timeline section accordingly.
Set the duration of work for an issue
|2||Set the target dates of an issue|
To quickly remove a date for an issue, click the x icon next to the date.
|3||Monitor the status of releases|
While scheduling work for your team, we recommend you keep track of the status of the releases in your plan.
Click one of the release icons in the timeline section, to view more details about the release.
Sample release icons and details
You can also use the releases view to monitor all the releases in your plan.
- In the new experience, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is always used when handling the dates of issues. Depending on how dates are configured in Jira, the dates may sometimes vary across Portfolio for Jira and Jira.
- When scheduling child issues, the start dates and end dates of these issues roll up to the dates of their parent issues. Effectively, this means:
- the start date of a parent issue would be the earliest start date of all its child issues,
- and the end date would be the latest end date of all its child issues.
To reschedule issues, do one of the following actions:
- Drag and drop the schedule bar of an issue to its new schedule.
- Edit the duration of an issue by dragging one of the sides of the schedule bar accordingly.
- Change the target dates of an issue in the fields section.
Scheduling issues according to sprints
Before you begin, note that this only applies to issues sourced from Scrum boards and when issues are assigned to Scrum teams.
When a team and a sprint are set for an issue, the target start and end dates of that issue are automatically derived from the assigned sprint.
Sample plan, with target dates of issue aligning with sprint dates
With the sprint set for the issue, you cannot change the target dates for that issue — you cannot drag and drop, nor resize the schedule bar of the issue.
