Create priority-based roadmaps, that ensure your stakeholders, team, and clients know what is going on – and when.

After you've made strategic roadmap decisions on the what and when on the prioritization matrix (chart view) you can visualize your roadmap on one of our timeline voews.

Timelines (or gantt charts) are the more traditional way of visualizing a roadmap, showing a time-oriented view of your strategic items. You can enrich a timeline with milestones to highlight goals, achievements, and other critical time markers.

Timeline views are included in many of our workspace templates by default but you can always add more timelines in a workspace by opening the views section in the workspace settings.

You can find more information on how to do this here.

Using the timeline view?

Timelines use item date ranges to pivot data along a timeline. You can either set up the time range by using a timeline field on the item overlay...

...or by using different drag'n drop actions on the timeline view. Use your mouse to move them horizontally or change the dates by extending/reducing the item.

You can also adjust the time scale or zoom (weeks, months, and quarters) for your timeline, choose the dense or waterfall arrangement, and turn your dependencies and milestones off. You find this in the display options.

To add a milestone to your timeline, simply click on the "add milestone" button.

On the timeline view, your items are sorted by group. Assign your items to a group, if you want them to appear in any of the group containers (otherwise they appear on the bottom).

Next steps

Now that your roadmap is set in stone (at least for now), it's time to share it with your team, selected stakeholders, and maybe your public audience. Learn more about how to communicate and share your roadmaps in this article.
