In this roadmap, we'd like to share some features the Structure.Gantt team is going to work on in the near to mid term. The scope of this roadmap is 6 months to 1 year.

...

  • We only list new, important functionality– we are also going to work on other stuff, such as improving existing features, improving quality, improving user interface , and adding minor features.
  • This document lists only upcoming features in Structure.Gantt. We're also working on Structure for Jira and other Structure extensions, such as Structure.Gantt, which have their own roadmaps.
  • The roadmap is subject to change. We will update it periodically so it reflects our current vision.
  • We only describe features briefly. If you are interested in the details of some specific feature or can provide feedback and ideas, please let us know at gantt@almworks.com

...

Note

It is our general approach at ALM Works to focus on the quality of the product. Sometimes it this means delivering a product later or changing plans and priorities, as unexpected dependencies and challenges appear. Therefore, while we try to adhere to the announced roadmap, by no means should it should be considered an obligation from ALM Works, and it shouldn't should not be relied upon when making purchasing decisions.

If you have any questions about our roadmap policy, please write to info@almworks.com.

...

We generally aim to release a minor version of Structure.Gantt every 1-2 months and a major version every year. The following is an approximate release schedule for the scope of this roadmap.

Roadmap

Here's the list of major features that we're planning to work on in Structure.Gatt 1.x series up until Structure.Gantt 23.0

  • Confluence Gadget, Export to SVG/PDF – Gantt chart as a static Confluence gadget, PDF export of a Structure grid with Gantt chart.
  • More granular configuration –  more flexible configuration that allows to specify individual Gantt settings for different sets of tasks (for example, different settings for different issue types).
  • Agile Planning – ability to visualize and plan tasks based on Sprints
  • Syncing to JIRA Custom Fields – writing the calculated values (such as Start Date and Finish Date) into JIRA custom fields.Baselines – ability to save a baseline and later compare against it
  • Constrained Scheduling – aka Resource Leveling, automatic scheduling that avoids resource overallocation
  • Multiple Resources – ability to specify several resources along with their usage.
  • Sandbox Mode – ability to play with "what-if" scenarios, without affecting the data seen by other users.
  • Baselines – ability to save a baseline and later compare against it.
  • Dependency lag/lead time – ability to specify lag and lead time between dependent tasks
  • Resource Management – more flexible way to manage resources and share them between several charts
  • Deeper Integration with Structure Attributes – lets Estimate, Manual Start Date be extracted from an arbitrary attribute (including calculated attributes).
  • Constrained Scheduling – aka Resource Leveling, automatic scheduling that avoids resource overallocation.
  • Calendars Integration – integration with major providers of work calendars, such as Tempo, Portfolio.
  • Sandbox Mode – ability to play with "what-if" scenarios, without affecting the data seen by other users

Planned for later:

  • Actual Start and Actual Finish Dates

     – optional configuration option to have automatically managed fields define actual start and finish date of a task, regardless of scheduling and estimates.

Planned for later:


  • Syncing to Jira Custom Fields – writing the calculated values (such as Start Date and Finish Date) into Jira custom fields
  • Editable Work Calendars – a UI for managing calendars.
  • Milestone-driven Driven and nonNon-binary Binary Critical Path  – a way to calculate critical paths for a specific milestone and calculate a relative risk for a task to become critical.
  • MS Project integrationIntegration – wizard for importing data from MS Project.
  • Split Tasks – supporting a way to break down a task into pieces when dependencies change and the task already has non-zero progress.
  • Structure of Structures, Gantt of Gantts – support configurations where a structure contains other structures and its Gantt imports the pre-calculated Gantt charts from those structures.
