Workload for user?

Hi, is there any way I could generate reports for the workload of a user, or easily see how many hours they have planned for a given period? Currently the reports only seem to be able to work on historical data.

Thanks

Hi Nathan,

Estimated periods are displayed in each time report.
There are two columns: Time spent and Time estimated. While creating Time report, you can point Query criteria:
Assignee: <username>
prettyPrint(); or others, regarding your goals.

Thank you.

Thanks Andrey, I did try this but I always get "There is no data matching your request". I assumed it's cause it only acted on historical data and the user has no time logged yet (though he does have tasks assigned with estimates).

Nathan,

Yes, that's correct. If you have no spent work items, issue won't appear in this report. Main goal of this is to display comparison of time spent and estimated time.
Roughly, you can try it with Matrix report, with Query
Assignee: <username> #Unresolved
prettyPrint();
it'll display all unresolved issues assigned to user. But, it won't show exact workload in time periods.

Thank you.

The matrix report does not allow you to specify and time spent fields, so it's not useful.

By the way the user in question now has some time spent on various issues but the time report is still empty. Not sure why.. ?

Ah nvm I had to modify the date range. Still would be nice to see their workload somehow though.

Hello Nathan.
We had the same need and it seems that you are right. We found a workable solutions by always putting Time Spent to 0 when we assign or estimate a task. By doing this you can create a report that will show you the total estimated time and the spent time. Spent time being 0 at first.
You can create, for example, a Workload Time Report in which the criteria is the current sprint, e.g. Sprint 1 and you can group it by Assignee. By doing so you will see all the hours estimated per user(developer in our case)

It works great for us so far.
We can see the workload for each developer and also the current time spent.  

Hope it helps.
