Set up the roadmap
Are you on the right help page?
The following information only applies to classic projects.
To check which project you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:
If you see an icon stating You’re in a next-gen project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a next-gen project. Check out our next-gen project documentation.
If you don’t, you're in a classic project.
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.
When configuring an epic in a classic project, the Start date and Due date fields will not appear within the default issue view. In order for date ranges to appear correctly 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
In classic projects, 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.
