What is the value of Target dates in Advanced Roadmaps? I can add them in the fields view but they do not auto chart a timeline on the data area but Start and End Date due? So why would I use the Target Start and end? Just
Hi @Channing Childs ,
Under the Configure > Scheduling section - you can change which fields affect your timeline - so, if you like to set Target Start and Target End that would work.
Please note that if you make this change in the settings, the Auto-schedule will now update your Target Start/End fields.
Having said that, the way I use them (since Portfolio for Jira) is to keep a static value of my "original" plan - the values I enter manually; and leave the Start Date and Due Date to be updated by the Auto-schedule based on the available data (team capacity, velocity, priority, estimates...etc.).
Hope that helps.
