Is there a way to show a schedule bar for releases in advanced roadmaps?

I find the schedule bars for issues to be a great quick visual for when they will start / complete.  However, this does not appear to be available for releases, which are only represented by small dots at the top of the timeline.  The only way to see release schedules on the timeline is to expand them so you can see the schedule bars for issues within the release, but this gets very messy when you have several releases on the same timeline view.  Is there a way to make schedule bars appear for releases, as well?

Hi @Joe Moss,

If your releases have a release date, they are displayed on the roadmap as a big dot:

You cannot display them as horizontal bars on the timeline. But if you select those dots and activate the highight on timeline option, they will be marked with a vertical line across your timeline view, so you can clearly see how your issues relate to the target:

The result looks like this:

Hope this helps!

Thanks for replying.  The dots and vertical lines aren't super helpful since you can't tell at a glance what releases they are associated with, and can't drag to adjust the timelines.  But I do appreciate the response!

Hi @Joe Moss,

Unfortunately this isn't possible at the moment. Although it won't exactly help it might benefit you to group by Release as this might help give you an idea of where the issues in the release fall on the timeline. One piece of feedback we've received is that people would like to see values roll up to the group header and this would also potentially solve the problem. Unfortunately because a release cross-cuts all hierarchy levels it's not particularly easy to find an obvious place to slot it into the issue scope so that they'd show as an issue bar.

We are looking at alternative visualisations of the timeline and a released based view is something we've thought about, but we have no concrete plans to implement anything yet. I do agree that this is a valid problem though and appreciate your feedback here.



Copy Aha! :-)  It's something they do well.

When you group by release, there's a horizontal row in the timeline for each release that could accommodate a schedule bar.

Thank you for the response, Dave!
