What are teams in Advanced Roadmaps?

The Team field is a custom field in Jira Software.

If you want to save this back to your Jira issues, you'll first need to add the Teams field to the Jira screen. Learn more about this on the Enable custom fields used in Advanced Roadmaps in Jira page.

Once configured, Teams in Advanced Roadmaps act as a label to designate which team will eventually pick up the work on your timeline. Once saved, you can search for issues that have been labeled for that team, then assign them to individuals when grooming your backlog.

There are two types of teams to choose from in Advanced Roadmaps:

  • Shared teams are visible across your organization and can be assigned to work on multiple plans.

  • Plan-only teams only exist within your plan so you can explore what-if scenarios and see how changes to your teams will affect your plan. This is what Advanced Roadmaps refers to as Scenarios.

Choose Teams from the view selector menu to see the list of teams included in your plan. Each included team will have an entry like this:

The teams dropdown in Advanced Roadmaps depicting a card that displays the team's name, and board and sprint metadata.

This team snapshot includes:

  • the issue source associated to the team (board, project, or filter)

  • the capacity and iteration length (capacity information will vary depending on whether it’s a Scrum or Kanban team, as well as how their work is estimated)

  • team member avatars

  • A lozenge in the upper right corner indicating whether this is team is shared or plan-only

You can also Filter issues by this team to view only the issues assigned to the specific team in your plan.
