Hello, we´re trying to export Advanced Roadmaps with stakeholders who don´t have Jira permissions and the Public link fails because they can´t see the macros unless they have a jira user profile. When trying to export the Advanced Roadmap, I only found the "export as csv", which does not work for us.
Is there a way of exporting it as PDF instead?
Hi @Mariah Rottoli ,
Adding image export (it would mostly likely be PNG rather than PDF) is something that we're really keen to add but unfortunately this keeps slipping down the priority list on our roadmap. We're aware that this is a key feature that customers need and want to get to this as soon as possible but we have to balance relative priorities of features and have a limited number of developers available to work on new features. I'm not in a position to give you any idea of when we'll get to this.
I appreciate this is probably a somewhat disappointing response for you but I just wanted to be honest and set your expectations realistically,
This Chrome-Extension allows you to capture and save your view as a PDF, may work as a way around this issue.
You're quite right @Morgan Barnes - and these style of plugins are things that we have recommended in the past. The important thing is that they scroll down the page because Advanced Roadmaps is implemented with virtualisation which means that we don't render parts of the plan that aren't on the screen.
The main disadvantage of this is that you're rendering static images of controls that you can't interact with. The designs we have for a dedicated export facility are actually an alternative view which doesn't require interaction to understand (for example when you have filters applied the button says "X filters applied" but you can only find out which interactively - in our designs for an export the image would clearly describe how the plan is configured. It's unfortunate that we don't have enough developers at the moment to get to implementing this sooner!
Is there any experience of a successful implementation of Better PDF Exporter in this regard or another plugin which allows a PDF export of content coming from Advanced Roadmaps you would like to share? We are still working with the screenshot tool as a temporary workaround and keep looking for alternatives.
One option you can try is the integration between Better PDF Exporter and Advanced Roadmaps, which allows you to export your roadmaps into customizable PDF documents.
(Please note that Better PDF Exporter is a paid and supported app and I'm part of the team developing it.)
Hi Levente, thanks for your answer.
Our team tried exporting a roadmap but the only view they got is a list (similar to the template you showed). They wanted a view of the roadmap plan overall (as seen in Jira).
I´ll try and find other templates to see if any of they fit their need.
Hi @Tanna Walters - I haven't run into any issues with random parts of the roadmap being cut out or the screen show showing white gaps.. however if I have a plan that covers multiple pages down, only one page of the plan can be printed (ie: exported to PDF) at a time. So then I have to print, scroll to next page, print, scroll to next page, print.. and so on.
We Rreally need a way to export the ENTIRE plan to a PDF (per the feature request mentioned above, which I'm waiting closely.)
