Ability to define capacity for a assignee in Capacity Report



I had a look at the capacity report and I think it has good potential. In order to make it useable for us, we would need to be able to define the standard weekly capacity per assignee, as well as exceptions such as leave, holidays etc. 


This is what I would say the core piece missing in order for us to use this function instead of current capacity tool.

    Our team's capacity planning use cases also require additional functionality to meet our planning needs.

    1. As a project manager I need to set expected capacity for each user by defining holidays, PTO days, and setting an expected capacity variable using either days or a percentage, in order to accurately plan and schedule each user's work in a project / workspace.

    2. As a project manager I need to set holiday schedules that are applicable to all users but that can be modified at the user level to account for users who may work a holiday. A use case for this would be our engineering team working a holiday night to complete planned maintenance.

    3. As a project manager I need to be able to schedule individual users across multiple project workspaces and have their total capacity calculate for a specific workspace as well as their overall capacity across all workspaces where they are assigned work.

    This should be an essential feature. Sprint planning must have a method to capture team availability so creating dummy features is an unprofessional workaround.

    Yes.  Definitely need this.  We assign features to teams and not individual developers so we need to be able to set the capacity per assignee as it currently thinks our "Team 1" is only 1 employee.

    We are also looking to be able to set an expected capacity per assignee. We have developers who are full-time, part-time, taking PTO, junior dev have a lower capacity than our senior devs, etc.

    Currently, we create a feature for each assignee and set an estimate on it for how many days/points their PTO, holidays, or capacity level is for the month. It would be so nice if we did not have to create fake features to accomplish this.
