Easier scope management and planning

Structure builder synchronization with Jira

Elements (such as task field values and/or links) will now align with BigPicture structure builders. You can edit the task structure at any time and see those changes reflected immediately in Jira.


Converting basic tasks into Jira issues

Save time on planning by converting basic tasks into Jira issues. Convert your BigPicture “basic tasks” into Jira issues in just a few clicks. Turn your “draft” plans into the actual ones in no time.


More clarity in execution monitoring and coordination

Inline editing of a task status field

Edit status fields of your work items right in BigPicture columns. Now, you can update the statuses of your work items (e.g. tasks) by in-line editing them right in BigPicture. All the status updates are synced with Jira automatically.

Work ration progress bar

Visualize work ratio in the form of status bars, not just percentage values. Monitoring execution has become yet more intuitive. You can tell if your initiatives are on track just by a glance at status bars.


Improved capacity planning and usability

Inline capacity editing in the Board module

Update team capacity whenever you need – right in the Board module. The capacity of your teams might change along the way. Now, you can in-line edit team capacity directly in the Board module and get the updated values automatically synced with all relevant contexts.

Drag&drop quick filter order change

Make your favorite Quick Filters even handier. You can arrange the order in which your Quick Filters are displayed on the list by simply dragging and dropping them there. Find your most often used filters without scrolling and searching.

Key aggregated indicators right at hand

New aggregations available in the Overview module

Display aggregated values of key work item indicators at the portfolio level. Overview columns such as Status, Budget, Actual Cost, and Estimated Cost can be aggregated by status category, a status category in percentage, or status in percentage, so you can get the big picture of work progress and overall health of your initiatives at a glance.

New BigPicture Enterprise reports

Milestones & markers table

Display all milestones and markers associated with a selected initiative. You can get this report only with BigPicture Enterprise.


Velocity bar chart

Visualize your velocity and sprint plans versus progress in the form of a neat bar chart. You can get this report only with BigPicture Enterprise.
