How to Build a Trello Roadmap

Looking for the way to have a visual overview across your Trello boards? Then, it’s time to build your first roadmap with the Planyway power-up! In this article, we’re going to show you how you can do it quickly and effortlessly just in 5 steps:

Step 1. Visualize cards on the timeline

Planyway visualizes all your Trello cards on the timeline based on their start and due dates. Apart from a regular Gantt-like timeline, you can group it by Trello lists, labels, members, and boards to look at your workflow at many angles.

Step 2. Manage multiple projects

In case you’re working with multiple Trello boards at a time, you can connect all boards you need to a single view to see cards from different boards on a single page. What’s more, you can make a project portfolio with Board grouping.

Step 3. Visualize subtasks on the timeline

Apart from just Trello cards, you can make subtasks visible as well to bring a better structure across activities. All you need to do is to create check items and schedule them. They will show up along with the Trello cards on the timeline.

Step 4. Show dependencies

In order to see how Trello cards are interconnected, draw dependencies, so that you can understand when one task can not be done without the other.

Step 5. Set up milestones

Milestones will give you a hand in terms of visualizing important key dates. Having milestones highlighted brings a better understanding of deadlines.


When you manage a project, there are so many things you have to keep track of. Having a bird’s eye view of your workflow can prevent you from getting bogged as you have a clear visual representation of what you have to do.

Also, a roadmap is a great instrument to keep your team aligned with your goals and objectives in a transparent way and make sure everyone stays on the same track.

Happy planning,
Your Planyway team ❤️

@Tania _Planyway_ hey there! I've been meaning to dig more into Planyway 😊 What configuration is needed for Planyway to understand card dependencies? 

@Brittany Joiner, hi! Planyway has its own dependencies, in order to add one, you need to open a card in Planyway and click the Dependency field:
