Tempo Planner overview

What is Tempo Planner?

Tempo Planner is a resource management platform which helps businesses streamline team and resource management in Jira with resource and capacity planning tools, plus real-time reporting, permissions management, drag-and-drop functionality, an approval workflow, and more.

Tempo Planner enables users to find available resources, plan and approve work, and request time from other teams. Filtering technology helps users search and find team members quickly by team, user or role. The Tempo Planner calendar gives users an overview of all of their organization’s resources, while assignment management tools enable users to manage teams and their tasks effectively.

Real-time reporting capabilities provide valuable insight into resource utilization, allowing users to see the allocation and availability of their team members. Tempo Planner helps users plan work with a central work timeline and drag-and-drop tools. Users can simply drag and drop issues onto the work timeline, and keep track of work status, marked as open, closed, resolved, or in progress. As a cloud-based solution, Tempo Planner enables users to manage resources anytime, anywhere, via any internet-enabled device.

We were looking for the software that can be used for planning especially in context of development resources. With Tempo we can easily book a resource for a specific task or project and anyone can see that the resource is already booked. The second way we are using it is for out of office (vacation/training/sick leave etc.) planning that gives transparency to everyone in the organization so it's easily to check who is planning to be off on a specific time.

Pros
You can plan any task in JIRA with Tempo planner, it's easy to see the overall plannig per team or individual user, planned time can be easily reported.

Cons
Sometimes confusing UI, especially if you like to see the planner from reports engine.

Pros
Tempo Planner is great for planning time in Jira. With seamless integration with the excellent Tempo Timesheets this is a fantastic addition to the Tempo family and vital in planning time for your software development team. Supports water fall and agile working methods and provides lots of tools to help your teams understand what they should be working on.

Cons
Currently lacks google calendar integration on the Server version which would be really useful in syncing meetings and planned work programmes.

The ideas behind seem fairly sound but the implementation is poor. Also, you have no idea when the plan on fixing the problems in the software since there is no communication about roapmaps or coming features.

Pros
* The integration with Jira was the main selling point. * A web interface was also something we were looking for. (We only plan on the "project" level. Planning within individual projects is handled by PMs on Jira project.)

Cons
* The software is confusing (several similar views that do different things) * Administration is a *nightmare* - really, I seen nothing as bad as this for several years: we have 25 teams, 250 "Internal" users and 200 external. Admins need to be added to each individual team (no central permissions) and if users are to see plans from other teams the 25 teams need to be updated manually each time we get a new user. * Each user has a workload scheme - but if a user's scheme i M-F: 8, 8, 8, 8, 5 and you add a 37 hour task for Monday, Tempo plans 7,4 hours per day showing the first days as under allocated and the last over allocated. Come on??? * Seems buggy. We have had a number of issues where we could not work out what we were seeing, reported a bug to Tempo - just for issues to magically disappear after a day.

Pros
Ease of use, the overview and the rich reporting features, as well as the integration in all Jira issue features. Very good to make detailed plans on a daily or weekly basis.

Cons
There is no change history. Often things get messed up, accidently. Then there is no possibility to investigate what happend to learn from, or to restore. Also user permissions are fairly poor - at least too poor for our team. No option to plan on a higher lever/portfolio planning.
