Hello,

My team is using Jira Work Management as a project management tool and would like to see the tasks listed under their respective epics and subtasks under their respective tasks (in drop-downs) in the Timeline view.

However, tasks and epics are currently not linked to each other in the Timeline view. They are listed as separate issues. Is there a way to change this?

I saw this question in the community from last year but there didn't seem to be a recent answer about a recent release.

Same here! Very annoying that it is working on a task->task but not for epic->task!

Hi Olivier - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You should click on the Give feedback button on the bottom left of the Jira Work Management project and let them know you would like to see the visual of the hierarchy.

was this solved?

No, it's not possible in Jira Work Management at the moment.

Is there a tentative date for this? 

The Difference  between Roadmap  in Software Project and the Timeline in Business Project, is just the name I reckon...   the code should be pretty similar.  So implementation must be quick. 

 

In case this is going to take longer,  which template do you recommend me to use If I want to have the List View and the Timeline, but with the Epic / Task / Subtask  grouping available. 

Thanks in advance for your help. 

Regards,

I think we all understand that it's not possible currently, but other threads noted it was coming (last year even) and so really the question is WHEN will we be able to utilize 3 levels of heirarchy in the Business (Work Management) projects? 

@John Funk is there something you can provide us with on that ?

This is super important for me also.

i suspect now that since @Olivier accepted an answer this thread gets very little visibility.... not sure if there's a way to UN-Accept it to make it "unanswered" again? (Sorry @Mke for the incorrect tag)

This seems like a basic need to have three levels of hierarchy. Any update?

Would love a solution to this. It's so weird to have the hierarchy in the list view but not have 3 levels of hierarchy on the Timeline. It's also annoying that you lose all hierarchy when searching for something.

What I would like to do is create isolated views of an epic and it's tasks and subtasks that I can embed or share a direct link to.

Guelmis Martínez June 21, 2023

I cannot believe such a complete solution does not allow us to see epics/tasks/subtasks in the timeline. Its so annoying

Thomas LUK June 26, 2023

Yes, we have to breakdown things to be executeable which subtask does, cannot view it in timeline is a total BIG FAIL.

Would also very much like this. The Timeline feature is very useful for myself and my PMO team to manage BA + UX tasks that cross projects and Boards in one place. Epic, Tasks and Sub-Tasks seems a pretty straight forward requirements for this. We are having to use Epics and Tasks only, which isn't ideal at all for grouping things in other views (Board view etc).

Can we have an update on when this will be made available please?

Thanks

@John Funk is possible could you point me to release note for May? I see May 7-15 for JIRA release dates, want to confirm it's the one you're referring to: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftware/jira-software-release-notes-776821069.html. This is very important for us to plan a critical program which depend on timeline hierarchy support. Thank!

It's just in Jira Software Projects (Kanban team-managed). I don't know why, because it's a very helpful feature.

Thomas LUK June 29, 2023

You sure? I don’t find it in Jira software timeline showing subtask

Micheal Planck November 28, 2023

Jira Software shows epic children but not task children.

Jira Work Management shows task children but not epic children.

I am going to say it again: Atlassian does not know how to write a function. They cannot write a piece of code that does the same thing with different parameters; instead, they write every single effect in every single instance sui generis.

Just like they expect us to create every single project from scratch, even when it is a copy of the previous five projects we've done.

They literally do not understand the concept of a function.

Micheal Planck April 14, 2024

Proof of my assertion: They are rolling out full level nesting for JWM... but not for JSM.

At some in the future, they will rewrite JSM to look like JWM. But they will not simply use the same code to achieve the same effect; they will write new code, with new bugs, and maintain two identical features separately.

Because Atlassian does not understand how to write a function.

Also interested in this feature, newly added stories and tasks are listed on the bottom of the list and not in the epic that is parent to them and to wchich they belong, hard to maintain that, hard to read the timeline properly.

Does this satisfy what you are looking for? Seems like it would...

Thomas LUK June 26, 2023

I think not the case in here. We are looking for sub task. I think it should has at least 3 level of visibility: epic > story, bug, task > subtask.

Epic should be some major milestone the length might over months; bug, story is the high level of tasks to achieve the epic, might take weeks; subtask is the actual execution task to complete and fix each story and bug, might take days.
