In the Roadmap feature, how does the Status dropdown works?


We are using the Roadmap feature.

In the Status dropdown, if I check Todo, I would expect to only see Epics that have Status = Todo.

In the screenshot below, you can see that, even though, the Todo option is selected in the Status dropdown, we can still see epics with status = Backlog.

Perhaps I don't correctly understand what the Status dropdown should do ?

Thanks for the help!

Hi @Marc-André Lanciault,

The filter works on status category rather than individual status. You'll notice that the statuses in your dropdown have colors:

  • grey representing to do 
  • blue representing in progress
  • green representing done

Thanks Walter.

So, If I understand correctly, when using the Status dropdown of the Roadmap page, the Epics that will be displayed will be the Epics HAVING issues with status related to what is selected in the Status dropdown, correct ?

I was expecting the Epics to be filtered by the epic's status and not the issues within.

Let me know !

That is correct. This is because otherwise you would lose the context of the underlying stories/tasks in the roadmap.

If there are no issues inside your Epics, then the Epic status will be taken into account as well.

Great! Thanks Walter!
