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.
After you create your plan, Advanced Roadmaps shows the issues from your sources as line items in a timeline format.
Let’s break this view down:
1. Issue column
In the first column of your plan is the Issues column. Advanced Roadmaps shows the following information for each issue:
issue ranking (if you’ve chosen to sort by Ranking)
issue type icon
If an issue contains children, select the arrow (>) to expand collapsed rows. Or use the Issue dropdown menu at the top to expand or collapse all issues.
If you create an issue using the + Create issue button, Advanced Roadmaps will place your new issue at the bottom of your current project. If you’ve made a child-level issue (such as a story or subtask), it will be listed under the collapsible x issues without parent heading at the bottom of your timeline until it’s linked to a parent task.
The middle columns shows values like start and end dates, status, teams, releases, and any other information you decide to include in your plan. Use the Fields dropdown menu to add or remove columns. To edit a field, select the one you want to change, edit it, and press Enter when you’re done.
3. Timeline bars
Lastly, the timeline bars represent the expected duration of scheduled issues. You can change the timespan that your plan covers using the timeline menu in the bottom corner of your timeline.
