Create a timeline view

The timeline view allows you to create monthly and quarterly roadmaps. Time is defined in ideas by the date field, which you can create like any other field.

Before you begin

  • You need to have an active Jira Product Discovery license.

  • You need to have at least one project in Jira Product Discovery.

  • You must have at least one date field configured to create a timeline.

Configure the timeline view fields

  1. In JPD, select a project and under Views > + Create a view > Create a new timeline.

  2. Name your timeline.

  3. Click Select fields and select your start and end date field. If you are new to Jira Product Discovery, chances are that you haven’t define time fields yet. Once you select the date fields the timeline will show up.

  4. Go to Fields > Create a new field > add a name and select the field type Date then, hit Create.

  5. In this view you can select whether you want your timeline to use months and quarters as time scale and the start and end date.


Ideas that have start or end date outside the timeline range won’t be displayed.

Add ideas to the timeline view

  1. Once your timeline settings are configured, you can start adding ideas to the timeline by clicking the (+) icon located at the bottom of your view.

  2. Search ideas and drag and drop them inside the timeline, or create new ideas.

You can now play with ideas by moving them around, grouping them and using filters and fields.
