Timeline view: Epic -> task -> subtask hierarchy



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.

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

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. 

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.

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.

@John Funk @Jane Yeoh  any update?

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?

Hi, another couple of months pasted and still not enabled. Anyone aware of any update to this?

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.

We need this feature in Jira Work Management. Any updates if/when this is happening?
