Milestones in Jira Software Roadmaps?

Hi there!  I would love it if I could do everything in Jira!  I don't really need a complicated Project Management tool, so I'm hoping that there is someway to add mile stones or task due dates to the Roadmap product.  I'm using the Jira Cloud Free Version now.  Evaluating for subscription purchase. 

Looks like Roadmp only uses the dates from Sprint start-finish.  Can I add arbitrary milestones outside of sprints?


Many thanks In advance!

Hi @Stephen Furlong , there isn't the concept of milestones in Jira roadmaps, at least not the free/standard version. There are addons in the Marketplace you could consider. If interested check these out 

Hi @Jack Brickey thanks so much!  I also just discovered Big Picture and a few others.  Looking forward to diving into them.  Many thanks for the info!

Great. For sure Jira can work well for project management IMO but there are some traditional PM concepts missing.

Yes indeed, IMHO some of those traditional PM concepts can be overkill for many agile projects (all of my projects).  I really like the lightweight PM overhead of Jira SW, Confluence, and Roadmaps.  Just need some milestones!

Really Dig all the Atlassian products! 

Hi @Stephen Furlong

I am glad to hear that you are considering BigPicture. The app not only converts tasks into milestones and displays them on a timeline but also makes it easy to track them. Find more info here.
Feel free to tag me if you have any further questions. 


I too would like milestones, but I dont want a $1K/mo plugin just for milestones.  Any other solutions in Jira Software? and Jira Advanced Roadmaps?
