Grouping Teams Together into Programs

Abstract

How to group teams together into programs

Important

Creating programs for teams requires the Tempo Team Administrator permission.

A program is a group of teams working together on a common project. Teams that are associated with different Jira projects or boards can be added to the same program. Each program has a program manager who has a high-level overview of the capacity and progress of the program's teams. The program manager can plan work for the teams in the program. 

To create a program:

  1. Select Teams Teams__1_.png in the Tempo sidebar.

  2. In the Teams view, click Programs at the upper-right.

  3. Click the Create Program link at the top-right and fill in the fields in the form:

    • Name - Enter a name for the program.

    • Manager - Assign a program manager. The program manager will have the permissions to manage and plan work for the teams in the program.

    • Teams - Select the teams you want to include in the program. You can also specify the Program for a team when you create it, or after you've created it.

  4. Click Create to create the program.
