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.
Hi @Marwan Saab , I would like to know how you do the comparison between the baseline ("original plan") and the actual plan. Do you do this in advance roadmap directly by switching dates configuration ? I'm curious and also sorry, I know this post is almost 3 years old ;)
Unfortunately, with Jira Advanced Roadmap, the feature of plotting on the timeline both the "Target/Plan" vs "Actual" - is no longer an option.
There is flexibility to visualize based on any "start" and "end" date fields in your instance's configuration - however, only one set at a time.
There are different solutions to highlight and/or report on work that is behind original planned days... however, these solutions are specific to what questions are you trying to answer + your Jira structure design.
Features that can be leveraged:
Hope that helps.
