Customers on the new version of Capacity Planning will now be able to access Capacity data in the Insights section.

In this section, you’ll be able to assess resource workload, utilization by team, demand versus allocation by business unit, demand by project category and more.

Time Frame Filter

  • This filter allows you to generate reports from specific time frames. Filter options include: Last Week, Last Month, Last 3 Months, Last 6 Months, Last 12 Months, and Custom.

  • The Custom option lets you pick a start and end date, but not beyond the last 12 months or into the future.

  • Charts update to show data for the selected time frame after you click "Apply".

  • Your filter selection will remain the default view until a new filter is applied.

Resource workload – Demand vs Allocation vs Capacity across time

This chart is designed to help you quickly see how well the team’s time is being used and how much capacity was left available across a selected period of time. Here, you will see a clear comparison of what's needed (Demand), what's available (Capacity), and what's free to use (Availability) across all teams for any selected time period.

This chart is designed to help you:

  • Determine if teams can handle new projects or tasks.

  • Assess the distribution of work among various resource types.
