Step 1. Specify effort on all tasks which require actual effort to complete.
Only tasks with effort appear on Workload charts. There are a few different ways to add effort to your tasks, so choose the one which fits best.
Step 2. Create a Workload chart for each team whose capacity you need to manage.
A Workload chart shows all scheduled tasks with effort, which are assigned to your team members on a timeline. You can create, reschedule, and reassign tasks and edit their effort directly from the chart.
Step 3. Configure a Backlog Box for your Workload charts.
Backlog Box is a place for tasks which are waiting to be assigned or scheduled. You can configure it based on different task attributes (for example, you can choose to show only tasks with a specific status) and can reconfigure it at any time, if necessary.
Step 4. Share Workload Charts with your teammates.
After the Workload Chart is created and configured, you can share it with your teammates. If needed, you can set up Access Roles for users and user groups, with whom you are sharing the chart.
Note that when you share a Workload Chart the folders, on which it is based, are not automatically shared with the user or group.
Step 4. Track your work using Timesheets
Timesheets help you see all the work you’ve done for the week.
