People Team Vs Plan Team(Shared)

Hello Team,


I like to understand what is the difference between Team in People menu and Team in Roadmap? How to use it? in our functions we have three teams. each team has it own backlogs. so we need to assign the backlog team wise. i have created the Team name "RELLAB in peoples but it is not listed in the team field in issues. but it shows shared team where i created the Team name as "RELLAB" in PLAN menu. please clarify.

Hello @Sundar G ,

Thanks for reaching out, and welcome to the community.  The difference between Teams in advanced roadmaps and teams field in Jira is covered in the Advanced roadmaps documentation under the page What are teams in Advanced Roadmaps? noting:

Teams in Advanced Roadmaps are different from the teams found in the rest of Jira Software Cloud. In Advanced Roadmaps, they act as a label applied to issues that designates which team will eventually pick up the work on your timeline. By adding the Teams field to your Jira issues, you can save this value back to your Jira issues, which makes sprint planning easier.

Since Advanced Roadmaps is a planning tool, the Teams field is a way to use features like capacity management without assigning issues to individuals, which happens in sprint grooming or planning sessions.

You can also use Advanced Roadmaps' view settings to focus on work assigned to a specific team. For example, you can choose to color issues based on the team to which they’re assigned, group issues by team on your timeline, or hide teams from your view.

Hope this gets you on the right track and points you in the right direction.


Is it possible to convert a Team found under the People menu to a Shared Team in Advanced Roadmaps?

I have the same question as Erin... anybody have an answer? Thanks!

HI @Erin Quick-Laughlin & @Deepa J ,

No, as mentioned in the document above:

Teams in Advanced Roadmaps are different from the teams found in the rest of Jira Software Cloud.

The Team located in the People Menu is an entirely different function of the application for managing what users have access to a project and is completely separate from the Team configurations in Advanced roadmaps for capacity planning of what users that have access will be doing the work under that project defined by the team.

As an example, every user in your system may have access to a project as a team member but only a handful will be expected to actually do the work within that project and need capacity tracking applied.
