Hello Umair, 

To edit a Bar, simply click on the bar while in edit mode, and then click the title of the bar. When you will hover the bar title, you will see a pencil. 

To edit the "dates" it's not really possible cause the bar doe not have dates, but you can adjust the view to "weeks" instead of "months" in order to drag and drop the bar more precisely. You can also use markers, to specify key dates. 

Hermance, I'm can't rename the bar either. Actually, I can rename it but no matter what I do it still displays as 'New Bar'. I click the bar while in edit mode, then I click the title of the bar. Then a give it a name. When I save it, it still says, 'New Bar'.

What might be the problem?

While I realize this is old, I hope this response will help the next poor soul looking for an answer.

The bars on the Roadmap Planner have 2 components - the Title and the Description:



Title is modified by left clicking on the title of the bar, modifying the text and then left clicking on the checkmark to save the changes.

The bar title is what is displayed on the Roadmap Planner.



A Description can be added to the bar when you add it to the Roadmap Planner by left clicking on the text 'Click to add description' as seen below:


The Description can be modified by left clicking on the bar and then left clicking again on any existing description that may be present for that bar:


Enter any changes as desired for the Description and then left click the checkmark to save the changes.


I have yet to determine what functionality the bar Description provides. It does not appear to be visible from a 'mouse over' nor any other mechanism. So usefulness of this feature is TBD.


A very special Thanks to my Team Mate P. Nguyen for illustrating the subtleties and helping formulate the above answer.
