How to show sprints on the timeframe markers of roadmap

Hi All,


I found there is a feature that could show sprints on the timeframe markers of roadmap from What does the roadmap show? > 2. Timeline section > 3. Timeframe markers. The article also mentions sprints only show with "Scrum plans". I did not see any active sprint on my roadmap so I am wondering what is "Scrum plans" and how could I make the sprints show on our roadmap?


Thanks so much!

Hey Linda,

I'm from the Roadmaps team, and I'll try to explain how sprints work on the Roadmap.

Firstly, your board must be using the Scrum template. If you are using a company-managed project, then you will need to make sure that you selected the Scrum template when first creating the project / board. If you are using a team-managed project, you can enable Sprints from Project Settings > Features and then toggle on Sprints.

Once you have sprints, you can go to the Backlog to create some sprints. You will need to set a sprint start and end date, or else the Roadmap won't know where to display the sprint on the timeline. From the Backlog, you can edit the sprint details, including its dates. Once you have done this, when you return to the Roadmap, you should be able to see the sprints in the timeline header.

Note: The Roadmap can only display sprints that were created in the same Backlog. It can not show sprints from other projects / boards.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if anything is still confusing.

Best regards,


Hi Henry,

Thanks for your answer. It's very helpful!

I've got one more question: Do the sprints not show if there are more then one active sprints or there are sprints overlapping?

Hey Linda,

That's a great question. You can have multiple sprints on the Roadmap, including completed, active, and future sprints (as long as they have been scheduled with start and end dates). When there are multiple sprints that are overlapping the same period, then the Roadmap will attempt to merge those sprints (visually only). In this case, when you hover over the sprints in the timeline header, you should see a tooltip with a list of all the sprints in that period.

Best regards,

That’s cool! Thank you so much 👍

@Henry Su Hi Henry, I have to jump in on this topic because it's similar to the issue I'm seeing!

Our company-managed Agile Workflow won't allow me to display our sprints. I made a scrum board like you suggested and we have multiple open sprints (each dev team has their own sprint name for the same 2 week period). The sprints were not created from this Scrum board, they were made from individual team boards.

Is there a way I can get the sprints to display on this board I created? I made it for projects so we can see what sprints sub tasks are assigned to. Please let me know what other info I can provide.

Thank you!

@Henry Su  your post above seems to say that unless the sprint is a part of your board you can't see it on the roadmap.  Is there a JIRA idea in place to enable this capability?

you probably need to utilize a Plan to consolidate these boards into ONE roadmap.

when you create the Plan, create it by board. Once created switch the view to Sprint Capacity Management. You should be able to see the sprints all in this one roadmap.
