To get the most out of your roadmap experience, consider the following additional configuration options during your initial set up.

Add the start date and due date fields

Hovering over an epic will display its date range, allowing you to view the start and due dates of your epic.

For epics, the Start date and Due date fields don’t appear within the default issue view. In order for date ranges to appear on your roadmap, you’ll need to configure the field layout for epics to set these dates.

To learn how to add the Start date and Due date fields to your issues, see Configure field layout in the issue view.

Epic name vs Epic summary

The Epic name and Epic summary fields are used interchangeably. On the roadmap, the epic displays the Epic summary.

To maintain consistency, use the same name for the Epic name and Epic summary fields.
