Set up the roadmap

This page is for company-managed projects

If the lower-left of your project sidebar says you're in a team-managed project, check out these team-managed project articles instead.

Learn more about the difference between company-managed and team-managed projects.

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 company-managed 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 company-managed 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.
