I suggest Structure Plugin should ...

Show live Gantt chart

The Structure Board could display Gantt chart instead of the aggregate progress.

However, this may need for additional data to be recorded for each issue (work logs may be not enough).

Also it would require a wide screen for effective use.

        Hello,

        Thanks for voting for Gantt Chart feature in Structure. It's been a few months already that we've been working on this, and the team is very excited. We've got some very nice ideas but we need your help.

        There are many ways to implement Gantt Chart, many JIRA configurations and various conclusions to be drawn out of the chart. We'd like to reach out to you to learn more about what *you* need from this feature.

        We have set up a Google Group for Gantt Chart early adopters. We are going to publish short surveys and ask for general discussion of certain Gantt-related things. Later, we're also going to publish links to preview versions of the product to get your impression and feedback.

        If you would like to see Gantt Chart for JIRA work in the way you'd like it to work, please subscribe and participate:

        Thank you!

        Jamie, thanks for your feedback. Yes, it's too early to ask when, sorry!

        I can say that we indeed want to start small, and have the first version contain only the very basic functionality. Things that you mentioned are certainly on the radar, although I'm a bit worried about that "etc." :)

        Once we have something to show, we'll start a private early access program. I will post here an announcement when it's ready. I can say that it won't be ready _at least_ until 3 months from now.

        Kind regards,
        Igor

        Good news. I assume it would be too much to ask how soon? We integrate all our plans for mechanical, electronic and software subsystems into JIRA tasks and structures. The long lead deliveries on our mechanical and electronic parts really need a gantt chart view to show our true development timescale. We are looking again at pulling the data from JIRA to update an external MS Project view of the overall development. I would very much like to avoid this and just build that view into a cross-project structure or structure or structures. It need now be as powerful as project, just the basics of allowing dummy tasks to show lead times (similar to the folders that appear in structure 3.0, finish to start relationships, a distinction between duration and the effort estimate in JIRA, critical path highlight etc.

        So, now that Structure 3.0 is formally out there will we be getting Gantt Chart functionality soon..

        Hi Derek,

        Thanks for the kind words! Structure 3.0 isn't released yet, but it's coming soon.

        As for the Gantt, yes, we do commit to creating Gantt chart for Structure, however, I cannot promise specific dates or versions. I would imagine 3.0 will be succeeded by a sequence of "smaller" releases, but Gantt will definitely be the next major thing. The initial work has already begun, and after 3.0 release it will have full attention of our core team.

        Kind regards,
        Igor

        Hi Igor,

        Now that Structure 3.0 has been released (congrats!) can we maybe get this "ideas" board updated please?

        This idea (gantt charts) is still the top voted by a long way and the 2 below this I can now see are in your 3.0 release ("Create parent issue that does not create jira issue" and "Allow an issue to be located in multiple places within the structure")

        We're very interested in using Structure for project management so if ALMWorks can't commit to this feature in an upcoming release we'd be very disappointed. Please let us know.

        Many thanks and we find Structure invaluable (so far) so well done.

        Hi Travis,

        We have started working it conceptually. However, our current main goal is to release Structure 3.0, which will contain a lot of great new features, which will also be instrumental for the best Gantt chart we would make after that release.

        I'm sorry I can't give you more specific details yet -- please stand by for Structure 3.0 announcement.

        Kind regards,
        Igor

        Hi Igor, any update on when the Gantt will be available? Would love to have this feature. Thanks!

      • Igor SeredaAdminIgor Sereda (Admin, ALM Works) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Kevin, thanks for your feedback.

        What you describe is indeed a light-weight version of Gantt chart, or at least a related calculation. We do have plans to work on this after the release of Structure 3.0. Quite probably we'll cover the simple cases first.

        Kind regards,
        Igor

        Another vote added for this.

        We are planning on using Structure within our organisation for multi project management and we need an additional 'date tracker' that could be provided by a Gantt chart view. Any news on this?

        Alternatively it would be useful if the remaining estimates of sub issues calculated the due date of a parent issue. This should be a moving date that can be compared to a static original due date field. I couldn't find a similar request for this?

        Thanks
        Kevin

        Jens-Martin, thanks for keeping interest in this feature. We're currently working on Structure 3.0 and will start working on Gantt right after that release. No ETA is yet available, sorry.

        Kind regards,
        Igor

      • Igor SeredaAdminIgor Sereda (Admin, ALM Works) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Mark, Eduard, thanks for your comments. We're one step closer to Gantt with 2.5 release.

        Our next big release is going to be Structure 3.0, with a few things remade from ground up. Generated structures, non-issue rows, multiple places for one issue in a structure - all that is coming.

        That would be another step. After 3.0 we will be able to focus on the Gantt chart. Before 3.0 it wouldn't make much sense technically - we'll need to do things differently on the new API from Structure 3.0.

        Thanks again for your interest in this feature and your support.
        Igor

        Sometimes we do not appreciate all that is there and ask for the world - make this a combination of all the best of the best PM tools that exist.

        What about looking at this in pieces, rather Agile-ish.
        currently have a start date and an end date.
        what if we looked at getting the Gantt view of just that, not Real Time up to date.
        Will really come in handy for Planning.
        Then it can be built upon to increase any real time status.

        I believe in keep it simple.

        Our company is using Structure over other plugins like Greenhopper and hope to see Gantt charts in the near future. is this something we can expect in about 6 months, or more like atleast 1 year away?
