Schedule issues in your plan using start/end dates

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

We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in Jira. Go to the documentation for the project timeline in Jira.


To schedule an issue from your timeline, add a value to the start date and end date fields. Alternatively, use your mouse to place a schedule bar on your timeline which you can then expand or contract to change the issue’s duration.

Once you’ve scheduled child issues, you can then extrapolate the dates of parent issues using the roll up dates feature. Find out how to roll up values in your plan.
