Can a kanban board's roadmap show the timeline for individual tasks as well as the Epic?

I want to see the timeline for the main epic as well as the smaller breakdown of timelines with the due date for each task. Right now I only see the timeline for the Epic and not the individual tasks. Any advice?

Hi @nadia.albayati

The other option is to install a plugin like BigGantt. The tool provides easy visualization on a timeline for every WBS element (epics, initiatives, stories, tasks, sub-tasks). 
Moreover, BigGantt supports project management in every phase, helps to plan, manage and track the projects. You can measure the progress not only on a single task level but also on a project or its phases level, visualize dependencies, and create what-if scenarios. 
If you have more questions, simply tag me. 

With the Standard Jira Cloud subscription you have only the Basic Roadmaps functionality. That allows you to see only the timeline for Epics.

You would need to upgrade to the Premium Jira Cloud subscription to get the Advanced Roadmaps functionality to see the timeline for child tasks. Or consider a third party app for your roadmap features.
