As Product Discovery matures into a shipping product, it would be good to see roadmap view (like in Advanced Roadmaps/Project roadmap) and the true nested hierarchy features release (as are discussed in other questions on this thread). We currently utilize another product (Aha) for some of these features, but would like to consolidate into the Atlassian ecosystem.
Is there a "roadmap" for the beta of the product to be able to understand the features that are planned, and relative timeframes? Also, are there plans for importing roadmaps from other projects, or at a reverse sync from Jira to populate a Product Discovery project?
Hi Ken, and thank you for your feedback! You pack a lot in a single message :)
Today you can create roadmaps using lists and boards, which is what most teams do. It applies quite well to roadmaps which are not time-based (e.g. Now/Next/Later). For the team that want to rely on time-based commitments in their roadmaps, we are working on a timeline view, which would look like this:
What you'll notice though is that this view is also abstracting away from the details. Its goal is to help you share and collaborate on product roadmaps that explain the "why" (why are we focusing on this? which goal does it contribute too? etc.) and help give a general (loose) sense of timing. It is not meant to be used to create detailed delivery roadmaps which typically provide a breakdown of tasks - for this we recommend using the delivery roadmap features in Jira Software, or Advanced Roadmaps.
Nesting ideas / idea hierarchy
Jira Product Discovery has a different approach to products created by other vendors in this space when it comes to organizing ideas. Instead of a hierarchical model you can make use of the flexible views and fields structure to visualize your ideas based on a number of dimensions.
You can use this to create a parent/child or opportunity/solution relationship, but it takes a bit of ninja skills today and we plan to make this easier to work with:
We plan to make importing ideas easier, including from other Jira projects. Today you can import ideas in 2 ways:
Jira Product Discovery's roadmap
We're not currently sharing the full product roadmap (and we don't communicate timeframes), but you'll find updates in the community fairly regularly. The problem areas we're currently looking at:
Following this, we currently plan to focus on a better way for product teams to collaborate with other teams, users and customers.
