A big problem for planners is that what you plan isn’t always what ends up happening. Instead of forcing you to manually update values of parent issues, you can tell your plan to infer values of parent issues based on those of the child issues. This is referred to as a roll-up.

When a value is rolled up, your plan shows an arrow next to the value of the rolled-up field:

This arrow indicates that a value in Advanced Roadmaps for Jira Software Cloud is inferred, or rolled-up.
