Change your plan settings

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 the project timeline in Jira.


Once you’ve made a plan, you can change settings on a per-plan basis in regards to how your teams work. Unless otherwise noted, these changes only effect your plan, and not others on your Jira site.

In your plan, you can change:

  • which dates your plan uses to schedule issues

    • due dates, sprint dates, release dates, or custom dates**

  • which boards, projects, or filters whose issues you want to include in your plan

    • these are also called Issue sources

  • show or hide custom fields**

  • in what units issues are estimated

    • story points

    • time-based units (hours/days)

  • which completed issues show in your plan, and;

  • how your plan handles dependencies (this change will affect all plans on your site)

    • sequential

    • concurrent

** - if configured by your administrator
