Issue “Due date” shown in WBS column and displayed as a Gantt chart icon
We have added a function showing a due date icon in the Gantt chart when a value is input in the Jira issue Due date field.
We have also added a Due date column to the WBS screen as a standard so you can check deadlines this way as well. You can change issue due dates in WBS Gantt-Chart by dragging and dropping the deadline icon or by editing the value in the deadline column.
Date and Date/time cell formats can be modified by users for international use
The start date and end date shown in WBS, along with the format of the date and date/time fields, can be changed as users require.
Previously, dates were always shown in a pre-set format (e.g. 2018/12/31). From Version 9.7 onwards, you can use the date format in Date picker or Date Time picker, or you can choose from the pre-existing formats set in WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira.
Ranges for quarterly periods (Q1 to Q4) can be set in line with a fiscal year
We have added a function so that when quarterly periods (Q1 to Q4) are shown in a Gantt chart, these can be set to start from any month you choose (according to the start month of your organization’s fiscal year).
For example, if the start month of the fiscal year is set to April, Q1 is the quarter from April to June, Q2 is the quarter from July to September, and so on.
Q1 to Q4 are displayed as Gantt chart headers with year shown above denoting the fiscal year in question. You can set the desired start month of the fiscal year from the View setting.
Selecting numbered weeks as units in WBS Gantt-chart
We have added a function to enable you to select Week number as a display unit in a Gantt chart. If Week number units are used, the week numbers in the year are displayed as headers.
