Roadmap view and nesting features

Hi All,

 

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?

 

Thank you

Hi Ken, and thank you for your feedback! You pack a lot in a single message :) 

Roadmaps

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. 

Demo: using fields and views to organize a large list of ideas

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:

Demo: grouping solutions by opportunities. And here's a recording for how to reproduce this configuration

 

Importing ideas

We plan to make importing ideas easier, including from other Jira projects. Today you can import ideas in 2 ways:

  • If moving from another tool: using Jira's CSV import
  • If moving from another Jira project: bulk move issues to the Jira Product Discovery project

 

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: 

  • More visual ways to prioritize ideas, in particular a matrix view and the ability to rank ideas differently in different views (to show relative priorities based on the target audience)
  • Supporting time-based roadmaps, with a timeline view
  • Supporting more ways to visualize the relationship between ideas (opportunity/solution, parent/child, etc.)

Following this, we currently plan to focus on a better way for product teams to collaborate with other teams, users and customers. 

This is great information, thank you Tanguy!

Thank you Tanguy for the information.  Looking forward to working with the timeline view, as well as exploring the relationships capabilities that you described.

Hello @Tanguy Crusson 

When will this timeline view will be available ? This is a feature I have being looking for .

@Erion Peci I don't know when it will be available yet, but we are going to start working on it in the next couple of weeks
