About Tempo Planner

Tempo Planner is a business planning tool that allows users to create plans and schedules. It also monitors their progress and identifies potential problems without relying on calendars and spreadsheets. Users can create repeating or split plans and display them on Google Events or Office 365. Multiple vacations and workload schemes may be added or absorbed into the plan. It is hosted on a centralized platform to ensure overlapping cannot occur. Users may save or filter resource planning views and set up permissions so that administrators approve plans before actioning them. Timesheets may be auto-generated from the plans entered into the system. Tempo Planner also has visual tools to help users balance workloads, ensuring certain teams are not overburdened while others are underutilized. Team members can add information, add plans and make requests. Employees can use a ticket or a priority system to dictate when the administrator should address concerns or requests.

Tempo Planner Review

Really good.

Pros

Ease to use and implement. Integrates well with other applications.

Nothing really. I am not at the stage of use of finding any limitations or gaps.

Tempo Planner is good but license integration forcing us out.

It works well for partner time tracking. Our QA vendor is generating all their timesheets right of Tempo. It is now our standard for finance audits on time keeping for this partner.

Pros

Integration to Jira is seem less and allows for my QA team to enter timecards in same system they use every day. Decent price for 250 users providing comparable function to higher cost solutions.

Cons

License integration with Jira. I have a 500 IT implementation of Jira going to 750. I only have a partner using Tempo 100 licenses. However, my license costs keep going up. I am paying extra just for Atlassian's license simplification. Rest of IT uses Planview and given this license practice raising my Tempo costs I will be forced to not renew. It would be preferable to have license audits to ensure we are not using 750 than to pay an extra $10k for licenses we will never use. If we were to sunset Planview for Tempo in next audit would true up and pay the full price so no real harm to Atlassian. Versus as it stands now you will loose Clorox Tempo business.

Support is not very clear. Would recommend an implementation service to train us and help us get full potential of Tempo realized.

Could be good but

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.

Effectively plan time on Jira

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.
