allow capacity planning by product line

We share development resources across several products, and capacity planning by product is of limited value.  Enabling an option to set and track of capacity at the master release level would be very helpful.

Ideally, capacity within subreleases would roll up to the master release so as to easily see the resources allocated for each product, and the total of all products

    This is the exact same problem I am having.  We plan quarter by quarter,  for  a team with a set capacity.  But within that quarter, there are multiple releases for  the product, and related add-on modules.


    I thought I could do this within the "Master Release",  but that forces the release date to be the same. Making the visual timeline useless.


    any suggestions on how to fake this with the current capabilities?

    Seeing this as a problem here as well.  We do multli-year planning and it's on different schedules for different product lines.  Not being able to set this at a Product Line level, is cumbersome and leaves room for error.

    I have exactly the same process. We have a large central development team who works on multiple products, so I need the ability to estimate capacity at a product line level, and then allocate available capacity between individual products within the product line so that individual product managers can then work within their allocation.

    Echoing what others have said.  We too have created product lines across our larger product, and those product lines have share technology resources (capacity).
