I have started using the advanced roadmap tool for a project which is 1 year long. I see that the horizontal scrolling is not there and this means either I can have a view which is 1 year long and if a task is just 2 days estimation, it is almost impossible to see it on screen or I can just see 2 months view at a time and then I can't scroll.
While there is a work around, the usability decreases significantly. Is this something others have experienced and have you found a specific way of dealing with this issue ?
just changing to my work email id and thank you for the detailed feedback. I have been going through the videos on youtube which were very informative. I had tried using these various ways of timeline you mentioned. They are actually very helpful.
However what I am after is what you mentioned at the end. If I can decide to have the timeline in days or weeks or months and then have the horizontal bar, the usability goes up quite a lot. So I think both are important, letting the user decide the unit on the timeline and having a horizontal scrollbar.
I am actually setting up the first roadmap in my organization and I am a big fan of this tool. I have entered a lot of data already and I have noticed quite a few things which could be easy to fix(maybe not) and increase the user experience. Would you like to have a chat and see how we are using it ?
Thanks for that additional information @Sahoo Manas (SEIT) ... so just to clarify - your preference would be to set the width allocated to each unit (what you might call the zoom level) and then the timeframe displayed would be dependant upon the available width? (rather than the timeframe remaining constant and the unit width adjusting for the available space).
We're glad to here that you're enjoying Advanced Roadmaps... we definitely value any feedback we can get... I actually wouldn't be surprised that a lot of the improvements you have in mind are actually things we're desperately keen to make ourselves! We have a relatively small team and a large backlog of work that we'd like to tackle and have to carefully balance our priorities. I'll share this with our PM team and get them to reach out to you... I'd recommend leaving some feedback through the feedback collector (the "Give feedback" button at the top of the plan) initially to get the ball rolling as this gives us an easy way to get back in touch with you and start a more direct dialog,
Just to piggy back off this comment...it is a travesty that user's can't scroll on a the roadmap. How are we supposed to see the future in the units of time we want without the ability to scroll?
This is such a major oversight that I feel there should be a disclaimer on the product. There is lots of activity on the forums about this (e.g. https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Advanced-Roadmaps-questions/Why-can-I-not-scroll-horizontally-in-the-Roadmap-view/qaq-p/1401649) both from recently and many moths ago.
When can we expect to see such a feature? Has a request been submitted already?
Hi @Max Howarth ,
As mentioned earlier in the thread - this is something that we're currently working on at the moment, but I can't say when it will be available.
I do understand that there might be a preference for scrolling to explore the timeline (if you're a consumer of a plan), but from a planning point of view I personally have never needed this feature as I just need to know what's happening in the current sprint and then plan 6 or so sprints in the future and find that with the custom relative date setting I never need to scroll.
It is possible to explore the timeline via the various presets for the timeline, as well as having the option to configure as many different views of time frames (quite handy to combine with hierarchy ranges to work on short, medium and longer term planning) as well as use the arrows on issues to adjust the timeline for specific issues.
As you point out there are quite a few people interested in having this feature which is why we're working on it. Unfortunately we typically don't commit to any dates when something will be available as that can often just set people up for disappointment if things get delayed for any reason,
