In the past, Portfolio for Jira required a high degree of detail–foresight that was unrealistic for many businesses to have–in order to produce a reliable long-term roadmap. We're turning that notion on its head by providing early access to a new planning experience that will be a hallmark of the upcoming 3.0 release.
The features now available for early access in version 2.19 allow you to easily create a realistic, data-driven roadmap across multiple teams in the earliest stages of the planning process, even when details like who will do the work and what level of effort is involved are still unknown. This provides a huge benefit to all businesses, regardless of where they are in their agile journey or the way they plan their teams' work.
For those of you who were keeping a close eye on Portfolio's development, you might have seen that we quietly enabled opt-in access to the new planning experience in version 2.18. As we build towards Portfolio for Jira 3.0, our focus is on collecting feedback as we iterate on and expand the included features and functionality.
Portfolio for Jira Server/Data Center version 2.19
The planning experience in Portfolio for Jira 2.19 offers a new way to visualize, groom, and communicate your roadmaps. Today, it includes the following features and more.
A total UI refresh making it easier to see the data that powers your roadmap
New drag and drop scheduling functionality with enhanced coloring and grouping options
Color issues to show the status of work or the team assigned.
Group issues based on assignee, project, or team.
Identify dependencies and manage them with simple drag and drop capabilities.
Ready to take the new experience for a test drive? There is no intensive migration process involved. Simply convert your existing plans to the new planning experience with a few simple clicks. And, not to worry, you can always disable the new experience as an early access feature without loss of data. Here's a link to help you set up the new experience.
Given the testing we've done thus far, we also feel confident these new capabilities are suited for your production environments.
Help us make your planning experience delightful and intuitive - your feedback at this stage will help influence our roadmap as we continue building out the planning experience leading up to 3.0. Please submit any and all feedback that you or your team may have using the in-product "Give feedback" button. Our team will review each submission and reach out with any questions as needed.
Portfolio for Jira has the power to transform how you plan your roadmaps and now can support an even broader set of planning scenarios. We hope you'll join us in making it even better. Get access to version 2.19 in the Atlassian Marketplace today.
