Timeline view: Epic -> task -> subtask hierarchy

Olivier I'm New Here Apr 20, 2022


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. 

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.

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

This is super important for me also.
