Forecast

Planning¶

The planning forecast shows a timeline view of the estimated work and allocated users per project but separated per type or name of events. This view is useful to quickly see that the total estimated work is correct together with having enough users to work on it. All numbers are shown as work days. When grouped by project the total column shows the summary for all dates including outside of the current timeline range.

Note

Only events with forecasting turned on contribute to this view.

Estimated¶

The estimated value shows the total estimate for the project and event type together with estimate per date. Events with an estimate higher than 0 contribute to this view.

Allocated¶

The allocated rows show total work days allocated for the project and event type together with per date. The event effort is included in this calculation. Events with users contribute to this view.

Capacity¶

The capacity forecast shows a timeline view of total and available capacity per group of users. When the number in a cell is 0 it is colored yellow and any negative numbers are red. Use filters to narrow down on the most interesting groups of users. Event efforts are included in these calculations. All numbers are shown in work days.

Warning

If a user is part of more than one group the capacity numbers may not be accurate due to the user being counted more than once.

Note

Only events with forecasting turned on contribute to this view.

Total¶

Total is the number of work days a group of users is available for work with any planned leave subtracted.

Available¶

Available is the number of work days a group of users is available for work with any forecasted events subtracted. Availability is basically how much more work a group of users theoretically can take on.
