How to track Workload effectively with new Indicator Mode in ActivityTimeline

What we created?

A totally new Mode for tracking actual time allocation in your Team.

How does it work?

Set a new “Worklogs and Workload” Mode on Dashboard. The remaining estimate will be excluded from the timeline in Past days and you could track only actual tasks.

How could it be useful for my planning?

  You are not focusing on tasks that are in “Done” status. If the task is logged for a long period and just little amount of work is done than remaining estimate will be pulled up front to the rest of future scheduled period.

Here is how it works in ActivityTimeline:

  If user logged work on a task in the past period than remaining estimate will decrease. You see what is going on with the task in real time.

Use case:

There is a task for a week with 40 hours of the remaining estimate. Jon doesn’t work on that task on Monday and the remaining estimate is pulled to the next days (Tuesday-Friday).


Then Jon logged 8 hours of work on a task for Monday and remaining estimate decreased to 32 hours. Logged work is visible on Dashboard and Indicator too.


Jon worked on Tuesday on another task and logged work to it. We see that time was added to Dashboard on Wednesday. Remaining estimate of another task was decreased as well.


But Jon still did not finish his task and Indicators signals that he is overloaded: 8h of scheduled work + 8h of logged additional work = 16h of work per day on Tuesday.


The manager is warmed about Jon’s overload. The manager can change Planned End Date of the task in Schedule section in Issue Card or just resize the issue to future days.
