Add, edit, and remove columns in your plan

This page refers to the advanced planning features that are only available as part of Jira Cloud Premium and Enterprise.

We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in Jira. Go to the documentation for project-level roadmaps in Jira.


Add column to your plan

To add a column to your plan:

  1. Open the Fields menu on your timeline.

  2. Select a field or use the Choose fields… dropdown to find a specific field.

  3. Press Enter to add it to your plan.

New fields will be displayed as columns with values pulled from Jira issues. Globally-scoped fields can be used across all issues in your plan. However, custom fields from team-managed projects can only be applied to issues from the same project in which the field was configured.

Hide timeline section
