Roadmap layout is becoming uneven where first and last column are getting wider than average column width when fiscal quarters are set to start from 1st August and ends on 31st July. The first and last quarters in the roadmap are disproportionate compared to other quarters.
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Results: Quarterly periods in the roadmap have average column width
Actual Results: Uneven roadmap Layout, first and last columns are wider than other Quarterly period columns
This issue has been reported to Engineering as DE50766.
Release : 15.6
Component : CA PPM SAAS STUDIO
This issue has been reviewed by Engineering and it has been determined that this is not a defect.
If the time-span (here total fiscal period) spreads over 2 calendar years, the available space (width) is first divided equally between two years. Then again for each year, the space (width) is subdivided into equal quarters.
Now say you have only one fiscal period (quarter) in the first calendar year and remaining in the other.
So now the first calendar year is having only one quarter instead of 4 quarters. Hence the leading white space indicates that you don't have any task defined in that period of time.
Same logic also holds for the trailing white space.
