Deployment Schedule

Deployment Schedule shows a timeline of all the Deployment Plans linked to individual Project or Independent Releases and provides a high-level status on whether or not each of the Deployments Plans are:

  • On Time: Activities are being completed on time as per their planned dates and times.
  • Overdue: Activities are not being completed on time as per their planned dates and times.

The Deployment Schedule page is blank until you choose one or more Releases from the Releases combo box and click View.

Then, all the Deployment Plans linked to the selected Project or Independent Releases will load, providing a timeline view of the Activities or Activity Groups within the Deployment Plan. Each Activity or Activity Group will be highlighted on the timeline view as being On Time or Overdue as per the logic above. If Activities are part of an Activity Group then the schedule will summarize the status of the Activity Group based on the status of all Activities within that group.

Important: If any activities within a deployment plan do not have a planned start and end date or any milestones do not have a planned date then the deployment plan will not load on the schedule
