Roadmap planner does not save changes

When I edit the roadmap planner within the macro it works ok. When I press 'insert' it returns to the Confluence page and the following changes do not save properly. 

- timeline date changes

- titles on bars

- location of bars

Hi, I have a similar problem.

I have made significant changes and the roadmap is deleted when I click insert. It is the 3rd time it happens today, so I basically lost 2 hours of work, anyone knows how to retrieve the changes? 

I'm experiencing the very same thing and reverting to the previously saved version doesn't help. (Browser = Chrome)

Hi, I'm having the same problem. When I edit my roadmap, click Insert, and Publish changes, it only *sometimes* saves my work. Is there any resolution in sight? 

I’m experiencing the same issue and it’s so frustrating. Has anybody found a way to fix it? 

I have wasted 3 hours today on the roadmap because of this issue. I don't know how much time I will still waste before having the roadmap correctly saved.

Same problem on my side, very annoying.

Me too.  Hours of work lost, two days in a row!

Come one Atlassian, respond please!

Same problem. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

I am still experiencing this issue. I just lost hours of work - after clicking Insert, it all just disappeared. 


Agreed, AVOID THIS TOOL. What a waste of my day this has been. 

I just lot a whole day of work having plotted over 50 items on a roadmap for the rest of the year.  I can't believe what a waste of time this has been.

I feel your pain.

This has happened to me as well several times. Again sometimes after clicking Insert after editing the roadmap is saves and updates correctly, often it doesn't. I am also using Chrome on Mac as browser. 

After clicking Insert there is whitespace on the page, so it's like the data is there but hidden, and from then on I am unable to edit the Macro so I have now way to get back to editing to recover. 

The visual is nice, but I'm about to switch to another solution as this is just a huge waste of time. 

Same issue... repeatedly 

Happened to me yesterday, spent 2hours with dev manager building roadmap for our project and as I clicked Insert in the page, changes were not saved. This was just before an important meeting to present the project plan to CEO and I had no roadmap to show!

This tool is to be avoided. I'll use ProductPlan instead from now on, which saves changes for every bar.


Looks like in my case issue was more severe than described by OP. Perhaps it was because I had the same page in edit mode on two tabs, so I could see page content on one tab and reflect it in the roadmap planner on the other tab.

I spent hours in a conference call working out the details of our roadmap. All that work was lost. There is a spacial place in hell reserved for whoever wrote this junk. I hope you die a slow and painful death.

same thing just happened to me, very frustrating

Same here...Confluence?

This has just happened to me too. Both having changes not saved, PLUS having it fully delete the roadmap after a subsequent attempt to edit it.

Someone else just logged a bug for this a couple days ago. I've added my detailed comments to that bug. I recommend anyone else experiencing this go to that bug and up-vote it and leave your feedback.

Update: Atlassian's confluence team just reported that they've fixed this bug. See their comments in the linked jira ticket.

This is definitely not fixed, as I ran into this problem this morning. An hour or more of work . . . POOF! Gone. I was going to redo the work but then I found this thread and knowing this problem exists, I am 100% not going to waste my time trying to do that work again.

Stay away from this tool; it is nowhere near a viable feature and the UX is horrible.

Confluence road maps keep turning into road rage. Have lost hours of work several times now for various reasons. Just don't use them, use or any other diagramming tool in stead. Or stick with gitlab roadmaps (premium license required)...
