How to create a Gaant Chart roadmap view in Jira Product Discovery?


In a Jira Product Discovery project, is there a way to create a Gaant Chart view where you can see the Ideas over a timeline?

I'm trying to create a 'Roadmap' view where I can view Ideas grouped by a field (e.g. Product Area), over a timeline.

For example, instead of NOW/NEXT/LATER at the top, I'd like to see calendar months.

This would be similar to viewing epics over a timeline like in Jira Advanced Roadmaps:

Short answer: a timeline view is coming soon, the team's actively working on it now. It's probably going to be a few weeks before we start sharing something about it. 

It's not going to be a Gantt chart though - not meant to be used for delivery planning, but for prioritization discussions and high level time-based roadmaps. Think of it as "it's like a board view, except that the columns can be quarters or months or a mix of that, and cards can span multiple columns". 

@Tanguy Crusson - thanks for the quick response. Sounds interesting, looking forward to seeing the timeline view in action!

You can rename the columns from NOW/NEXT/LATER to anything you want.

For dependencies and more detailed timelines I think the advanced roadmaps is the way to go. Because that's when it also already turned from just being ideas to a more defined roadmap.

@Christian Happel  - thanks for sharing.

I agree, makes sense. It’s just that we usually have a mix of locked delivery epics scoped into a release along with some feature ideas that are candidates for a release (could become epics) that we are still doing discovery on/collecting insights. So, a view of both epics and ideas over a monthly timeline would be nice. And then, we can share this roadmap internally & externally to give everyone a view of what’s on track and what’s a possibility we deliver (with a status).  

Would be nice to accomplish all of this with the current Jira Standard plan, but it looks like we’d have to upgrade to Premium, and separately, Jira Product Discovery.  

Anyways, I will try to add more columns and rename them to dates/months to recreate something like this:


@David Nadri @Tanguy Crusson How do you get a view of Jira Advanced Roadmap like you have with the plans tools? Thank you.

If you search the forums for Timeline View you might find something. Timeline views are (likely) on the Product Discovery team’s roadmap (ha!) but I’d just venture a guess that they are negotiating cannibalizing other Jira products. :) Hopefully soon though!! #want

Hahaha I can see someone's worked in a big company before 😅
