We have recently transitioned to the Jira Software tool, and are trying to customize it as much as we can so if fits to our needs.
Since our product discovery work is usually separated from the development work, we have created two separate projects: one for Product and the second for Development.
They also differentiate in how they works since the Product team uses kanban and the Dev team uses a Scrum framework.
However, even though they are separated, we need to have visibility of the roadmap for both projects, as they are sharing the epics and need to know the progress of each of them.
Is there a way of sharing the roadmaps between those two projects?
Additional info: we do manage to link epics to tasks pertaining to them on both projects without any problems, however, we don't have visibility of it in our roadmap section of Jira.
Thank you all in advance!
While that would be nice to have, it doesn't work that way for the roadmap view in classic or next-gen projects. Atlassian has Advanced roadmaps which is a premium feature that can do what you mentioned as it can pull out multiple boards into plans. If you have the budget for it, I will suggest you try that application.
Thank you very much for the answer!
We will upgrade to the Standard Plan, since our team is of 6 people, however, I don't believe we will upgrade to Premium just for the sake of shared roadmaps.
We are a very small team and will not use the full capacity of the Premium plan, so I believe we will do with cloning, and having everything well documented and linked between boards.
Hi @Mateja Jermanis,
Another option is to adopt a dedicated solution for your product discovery work.
Productboard is an Atlassian partner that helps product teams identify trends in user feedback, prioritize what to build next, and create high-level roadmaps that can be shared across your organization.
It supports a two-way integration with Jira so everything stays in-sync.
You might still have use for Jira roadmaps for more detailed release plans with your delivery teams.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for your reply!
I have used ProductBoard in the past, but we have decided against it in this project.
We are trying to minimise the different softwares used in order to manage our workload, so for now we are using Jira Software and 2 more apps that help us in our day-to-day.
As i mentioned above, we will try to do with cloning and keeping our roadmaps up to date :)
