Visualize child issues in the roadmap

I want to visualize in roadmap or GANTT view child issues with start and end dates within my Roadmap. 

The image below as displayed in this support article leads me to believe this is possible but I cannot create the same visualization.

How do I recreate? Currently, I can only see child issue progress through the rolled up bar and task list underneath. I want a visual bar relating to the epic beneath which corresponds to the start and end-dates I set. 

My current view which I would like to visualize as shown above.

Thank you!

Hello @Sarah White 

Welcome to the community.

According to the below issue, displaying date bars for child issues based on the Start Date and Due Date in those issues is not supported.

Do you use Start Date and Due Date on your Epics?

I haven't had a chance to play with the Roadmap, but I also notice that the article says it will display the "duration" of the tasks. Have you tried adding effort estimates to the child issues?

For anyone happening upon this, according to the link above this feature is under active development and as of this posting, is due out by the end of July 2022.
