Plan and view work across multiple teams, projects, and releases with Advanced Roadmaps.
This page refers to Advanced Roadmaps, which is a cross-project planning tool only available as part of Jira Software Cloud Premium and Enterprise.
We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in all Jira Software plans. Go to the documentation for project-level roadmaps in Jira Software.
The information that you want to highlight in your plan varies depending on the audience. Upper management might want to see an overall view of your timeline, while a development manager might be interested in a more granular breakdown that focuses specifically on their team. For this reason, Advanced Roadmaps lets you save different settings profiles of your plan so you can quickly and easily recall a view depending on your audience.
Within each view, you can add or remove columns, apply filters and sorting preferences, change color settings, and more to tell the story that each individual audience needs to see.
Adjust how Advanced Roadmaps displays your data
The View settings menu lets you customize how Advanced Roadmaps displays issues and related information on your timeline. This menu lets you:
change how issues are sorted
change how issues are grouped
add color to issues in your plan
show full hierarchy on your timeline when filtering
change how dependencies show on your timeline
enable roll-ups in your plan
If you want to get started straight away, Advanced Roadmaps comes with four preconfigured views out of the box. Each has their own preset settings, but all are editable:
Sprint capacity management view
Top-level planning view
Dependency management view
If none of these show your plan the way that you want, you can also save custom views to your plan.
Plan for all outcomes with scenario planning
Advanced Roadmaps lets you create different versions of your plan to capture a range of possibilities and outcomes. What if this task goes long? What if we don’t have to build this from scratch?
Scenarios in Advanced Roadmaps let you explore all the ways your project could go. And once you’re ready, you can easily make that scenario your main plan, and commit those values back to your Jira issues.
