I'm just trying Jira Work Management and created a project from the template Software Project (Kanban).
Problem is, there is no Timeline view in the project sidebar, which is displayed in the documentation: visualize-your-projects-timeline
I looked into Project Settings, but can't find any option how to enable the Timeline. I also noticed there is no start/end dates on the tasks?
The Timeline view looks very practical and intuitive to track chronological history of tasks and how long each task took to finish. So please, how to enable the Timeline view and include dates in tasks for a project?
Thank you very much! I just thought that all the templates are intended for Jira Work Management.
So, I've tried another template from the Work management category and the Timeline is there!
I would have two more questions though:
1. Is it possible to split a task in the Timeline? Lets say, I've worked on a task for 3 weeks, then had to switch to another more urgent task for 2 weeks, and then will return to the former task. How can I represent that chronologically in the Timeline? Is it possible to specify a non-continuous time interval?
Or should I use sub-tasks to split the work effort? I've tried that, but it seems the Timeline view does not include the sub-task's intervals to the parent task when they are folded.
2. Is it possible to somehow display labels or epics on the board cards? I would like to somehow distinguish task on the board, but I can't get labels there and I couldn't create any epic to distinguish the task -- it seems epics are not supported for Jira Work, right?
Hi @Alex Koxaras _Relational_ thank you very much for your clarification and recommendations. I appreciate that a lot and I will play more with the project settings and epics.
I like the idea of timeline Gantt charts a lot, and I hope in future they will get even more powerful and more customizable.
