Create a static image of your plan

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


Export your data to create a flat image of your timeline which you can then include in presentations or emails. All images include a legend which tells viewers what the markers mean, making it ideal for sharing your plan with those who aren’t familiar with Jira.

Only what’s visible on your timeline will be included in your exported image. Be sure to adjust your filters and view settings to include the issues and details you want to see before you export your data.

In order to export or share your plan, you need to have Plans administrator or Plan user permissions. Read more about plan permissions.

To create a static image of your plan data:

  1. Select Share as in the upper right corner of your plan, then choose Image (.png).

  2. Use the menus at the top of the modal to decide how wide you want your timeline to be, and the date range you want to include.

  3. When you’re happy with your image, select Download. Jira then generates an image (in .png format) of the plan’s data based on the current filters and hierarchy range applied to your plan.

Users accessing a plan from a Share as link can’t export their plan as an image.

Limitations of exporting an image

You can only export up to 500 issues from your plan in one image.

For larger data sets, we recommend either exporting your data as a .csv file which is designed to handle large datasets, or exporting your data in multiple images. Find out how to export your data in .csv format.
