One thing I noticed is that I can know what is going on across projects.

The core of this plan is the new link type "tracks/contributes to". This link type allows to link WI over Jazz Repositories and not only within one CCM instance.

The current implementation only gives a rolled up schedule by using the planned snapshots in the other plan containing the workitem that is being tracked.

See also my forum question:

And my Defect (see also the attachment)

I'm do not use this snapshot and GANTT chart functionality and I'm working within one repository, thats why I prefer the "Resolves/Resloved By" link type. It has more fuctionality yet for my use cases.
