WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira

Microsoft Project field



Task name


Resource name

  • Makes the assignee's username and workload as the output.

  • If the workload is 0, Microsoft Project specifies the duration of the task as 0 days as a default. Therefore tasks with no milestones and 0% workload are exported with a 1% workload.

  • If square brackets are used for the full name of the assignee, convert to parentheses. In Microsoft Project, you cannot use square brackets for resource names.

Uses the value of the field configured as "% done" in WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira

However, in Microsoft Project, the % completion rate of a summary task is automatically calculated including accumulated  % completion of child tasks as well. Therefore the value shown may differ from % done in WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira.
