As a general rule, make sure that all SoftwarePlant plugins are always up to date to ensure compatibility. 

With version 8.0.19, release versions have been equalized - BigTemplate version matches BigPicture and BigGantt versions.

For example, if you are using BigPicture/BigGantt 8.0.19, the compatible version of BigTemplate is 8.0.19.

Please note that downgrading to older version of our plugins is not supported and rollback to a previous version (to ensure plugins' compatibility) may not be possible or may cause serious problems. Please make sure you choose the correct versions and be sure to have a full database backup before upgrading.

BigPicture/BigGantt compatibility with BigTemplate

If you are experiencing problems when importing a file (things stop loading or you see errors) or exporting your data to a file, it may mean that the versions of the BigPicture/BigGantt and BigTemplate plugins are incompatible.

How to check which version is the right one?

The release versions should match. BigTemplate version should not be newer than the BigPicture or BigGantt versions. The easiest source of information is our Atlassian Marketplace page:
