Roadmap Dates and Timeline Style

SIGN UP ➜

Setting the Timeline Style

From your Settings, select the Timeline tab to define the dates that appear at the top of your roadmap. By default, the roadmap is set to display Quarters. You can set your timeline style to Weeks, Months, Quarters, Months + Quarters, Years, and Sprints. You can also choose to not display a timeline by selecting (None).

In the timeline there is a caret showing today’s date.

Setting the Start and End Dates

You can limit the date range that you and others can see on your roadmap. The Start Date and End Date define the scrollable boundaries. As you change these dates, all your data is preserved even if it is before or after the dates you define.

Using the Months to Display / Sprints to Display you can define how much of your roadmap appears in a single browser window – for example, you may want to show only three months of your roadmap at a time, even if your roadmap is a full year. Viewers will need to scroll to see the full roadmap.

 

Scrolling Across your Timeline

When you revisit or view a new roadmap, the timeline will auto-scroll to center on the today line. If the today line is outside of the start and end dates, the timeline will not scroll.

When dragging Bars or Containers horizontally across the roadmap, the Timeline will auto-scroll. Dragging vertically across Lanes will also auto-scroll your view. If you drag a Bar past the end of the timeline, the end date will automatically update to display the Bar.
