Schedule issues in Advanced Roadmaps using start/end dates

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.


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, which you can learn more about on the Roll-up values in Advanced Roadmaps page.
