Managing teams and releases

If you're using the improved planning interface (3.0 and later), this page is for you. If you're using live plans (2.0 to 2.27), head to Portfolio for Jira live plans.

While planning work for your teams in the improved interface, it's worth monitoring every now and then the existing teams and releases in your plan. This is especially helpful when you're frequently auto-scheduling your plan — the teams and releases in your plan do have an impact in how work is scheduled in your plan, and even how fast your plan performance can be.

For example, you may notice that your team capacities are becoming more and more overbooked over time. You may need to check the weekly hours or velocity that you've set for your teams. Or perhaps you need to add more members to an overbooked team, so that team has more capacity to work with.

You may also want to consider removing releases that have been completed from your plan. Over time, your plan may be collecting releases that you no longer need to monitor. By removing these releases, you can increase the loading performance of your plan.
