By default, Advanced Roadmaps uses due dates when scheduling issues. If you’d like to use custom dates in your plan, you need to first add the custom date field to the schemes of the projects associated with your issue sources. Learn how on the Enable custom fields used in Advanced Roadmaps in Jira page. Once that’s been configured, you can then select your custom date in Advanced Roadmaps.

To change which dates Advanced Roadmaps uses in your plan:

  1. From the Roadmap view, navigate to settings using the  next to your plan name > Configure.

  2. In the Scheduling tab under the Dates section, use the drop down menus to select what to use as the start and end dates of your issues. Custom dates that you’ve already configured are listed alongside their corresponding IDs for easier identification.

On your timeline, the custom dates are marked with a lozenge D in the Date column. If your dates have S or R next to them, then your plan is inferring dates based on sprint and release assignments, which you can learn more about on the Schedule issues according to releases and Schedule issues according to sprints pages.
