Hello @Donte Crawford 

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

No, it is not. It has some similar functionality, but it is a "basic" roadmap/timeline function.

For more information on the Timeline functionality refer to

https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/guides/basic-roadmaps/overview#timeline

For more information on Advanced Roadmaps, which is available only with the Premium and Enterprise subscriptions, refer to 

https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/guides/advanced-roadmaps/overview#what-is-advanced-planning

For some high level information about the differences, refer to this page where you can switch between information for the Basic and Advanced features.

Thank you, which option (screen) do I need to access Advanced Roadmaps after purchasing the free trial?

Advanced Roadmaps functionality is accessed through the Plans menu.

I provided a link to the documentation in my first response. That includes an overview and links to more detailed documents.

Understood. So Roadmaps is a build in feature within Plans. Once roadmaps is enabled, will I see it mentioned in the side menu? I dont see it appearing on my Jira yet.

"Advanced Roadmaps" is the over-arching name (the original name) for the functionality encompassed under the Plans menu. There is not specific item named "Roadmaps" anymore.

Where items used to be named "Roadmap" they have been renamed "Timeline".

The Timeline option you see in the left panel when viewing an agile board is the "Basic Roadmaps" functionality. The Timeline option you see in the left panel when you view a Plan from the Plans menu is the "Advanced Roadmaps" version of the Timeline. These two timeline features provide different functionality.

Last question - what do the different colors represent in the timeline view? Screenshot 2024-02-21 at 9.06.46 PM.png

I believe those colors correspond to the Status Category of the issue on the same line.

Gray = To Do

Blue = In Progress

Green = Done

 

Every individual possible Status value that can be used on an issue is created in one of the three above Status Categories. The Status itself will show the same color coding to indicate the Status Category to which it belongs.

Thank you. Im unsure of the issue but Ive created a new plan and when I select 'Sprints' in the filter, its showing all sprints as external and no longer displaying the same timeline view. How can I correct this? Screenshot 2024-02-22 at 6.09.24 AM.png

Take a look at this:

what are external sprints in advanced roadmaps 

(Found by using google to search for (jira cloud "advanced roadmaps" "external sprint")

Donte Crawford February 26, 2024

Thank you. It appears Jira has removed the 'Shared teams' option in Plans. Unsure if it is affecting my new challenge. 

When I want to view my capacity management timeline, I change the 'grouped by' option to 'Teams' Im unable to view the assigned team's work. All of my issues show up under 'Unassigned'

 

Do I need to enable the teams field on my Jira issues? Im currently using component's but when I change the grouped by option to components im still unable to view the team's issues and capacity

In Jira Cloud what was "Shared Teams" under just Advanced Roadmaps Plans is now any Team defined from the Teams menu. Refer to

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Advanced-planning-articles/Teams-in-Advanced-Roadmaps-What-s-changing-and-what-you-need-to/ba-p/2259096

You do need to create a Team under the Teams menu. You need to add the Team to your Plan. The Capacity for the Team within your plan needs to be set.

You do need to enable the Team field for the issues. You do need to set the the Team field for the issues in order for them to show up under specific Teams (rather than unassigned) when using the Group By Team option.

Hello- I am attempting to 'Auto - Schedule' items in Jira Plans. Items that are in progress from the previous sprints. But the timeline is not bringing those stories forth. Any workaround?
