New key features

Jira Cloud performance improvements → Two important features work faster: re-sync and rescheduling. Moreover, we have limited amount of queries from BP to Jira, in that Jira is not overloaded by BP and works smoothly.

Tasks are automatically scheduled based on assignee's working days (Gantt module) → Task start and end dates (task period) and its duration are always (if the feature is on) adjusted to working days of an individual resource assigned to a task, e.g. task will automatically be longer if non-working days are in-between task's time period. Read more here.

Task period is recalculated based on task mode (Gantt module) → Auto mode is replaced by two new modes: auto bottom-up and auto top-down. If auto bottom-up mode is on, parent tasks will be adjusted to their children; if auto top-down mode is on, children tasks will be adjusted to their parents. Read more here.

Field: Project is automatically filled in based on parent task (Gantt module) → By creating new Jira sub-task field: Project is automatically filled in based on marked task. Read more here.

Task mode is synchronized with a chosen select field in Jira (Gantt module ↔ Jira) → It is possible to migrate all task modes from BigPicture/BigGantt to selected field in Jira. Read more here.

Migrate values option is added to all fields in task configuration page in BigPicture technical administration (BigPicture ↔ Jira) → It is possible to migrate values from all fields from BigPicture task configuration to chosen Jira field. Read more here.

Allow App to make changes in Jira instance (BigPicture ↔ Jira) → The configuration applies to specific cases, such as updating issues fields which are not visible due to screen schemes configuration, that allows you to start working with an add-on without warning. Read more here.

Roadmap reports (Roadmap module) → It is possible to visualize the statuses of PI/iteration team objectives and main objectives on bar charts and pie charts.

New Column Views (Scope module) → There are three new Column Views added: Timetracking, Basic, People, Releases. Read more here.

User can schedule tasks on a week-number scale (Resources module) → In Resources Module was added third timeline scale to represent a number of a week. Read more here

Individual's capacity is calculated based on availability in program teams (Resources module) → Calculation of an individual resource's capacity takes into account the availability of an individual in all Program teams he/she is a member of. Read more here.
