I work at a fairly large company (>500 FB users) that has recently started using FB. I want to start using EBS, but when I look at the report I can't find a way to either filter who's estimates I see or when they're for. Unfortunately some people seem to be estimating quite badly, so EBS is going completely nuts:
There are obviously two problems here:
- Horizontally: I obviously don't care about any dates past a certain time (let's say, the end of the year, though this example goes almost to the next millenium!). I'd like to be able to set an end date and just cut off the display of anything beyond that.
- Vertically: I don't really want to see all 50 people who have entered estimates - I'm not a manager. I'd like to only see my estimates, or at most those in a certain group (eg a certain list of people).
It seems to me that with EBS working this badly, we have a significant chicken-and-egg problem for adopting it. I have absolutely no motivation to enter good estimates if I can't see this chart, and if it only takes one person anywhere in the company with a really bad estimation history to send the program completely nuts, it seems unlikely that we'll get this to work very often. Also, I can't sell this feature to my manager, because he can't filter down to just his group!
If there's a way to filter and I've just missed it, please let me know. Otherwise, can you please add filtering so that companies migrating to FB can start using it gradually, group-by-group, instead of depending on everyone to immediately move over to the FB way of doing things?
