Hi Atlassian community,
A few months ago, we offered a sneak peak of the new hierarchy view on the roadmap. Thank you for all the feedback (and excitement) and for helping us shape the direction of the new next-gen roadmapping feature in Jira Software Cloud.
Based on your input, we’re proud to announce three new features for the roadmap.
Teams love the roadmap because it's great for building a big picture plan and sharing a snapshot of what’s going on in a Jira Software project that anyone can consume at a glance.
We’ve heard from many teams that in addition to the big picture view, they are also looking for the ability to quickly drill into the details. With the new hierarchy feature on the roadmap, you can do just that. You can now see all the stories, tasks, and other child issues that roll up to your epics. You can also find what the status of those issues are and who’s working on them so you can get a sense whether your plan is on track and adjust accordingly.
We’ve heard from customers how much they appreciate the ability to create new roadmap items (epics) inline with a single click. With the new hierarchy view on the roadmap, we wanted to bring that same simplicity to enabling people to break down work right from the roadmap. With this new feature, you can now quickly create child issues on the roadmap without clicking into the issue detail page or navigating to the board or backlog.
Click on the + button while you're hovering on an epic.
As your roadmap grows, it can become harder to zero in on exactly what you’re searching for. We’ve added new filters to help you find what you’re looking for on the roadmap, whether that’s work items owned from a specific person, work in progress, or you can even take a look back and filter for work that has already been completed. Once you find the right view of the roadmap, you can easily export it to PNG through the roadmap’s share feature.
