Roadmap

The roadmap provides a highly-configurable, version-based view on the issue tracking system that helps planning and managing the development of a project.
It also provides an in-depth (version-based) overview of the current state of your project.

Overview

If you select the Roadmap you will get an overview of the current state of your project, like the following:

The above mentioned view contains the following "blocks" of information for all (incomplete) versions:
  • a progressbar which indicates overall active/done/closed-ratio based on the %-done and statuses of the issues targetted to the corresponding version, visualized by different colour-gradients and including the date the version has been scheduled to be complete
    the content of the wiki-page that has been configured to be attached to the version
  • if configured: the content of the wiki-page that has been configured to be attached to the version (see below)
  • if configured: a list of all the issues assigned to the specific version (see below)

The mentioned progressbar includes drill-down links to the issue-list which preloads the specific filters thus providing quick links to open/closed issues targetted to a corresponding version. Simply click on the number left to open to see all open issues in the issue-list. If you like to know which issues are already solved/closed simply click on the number left to closed.

If you click on the version itself (0.8 right from the -icon) you can get a detailed view of the current, overall state of a specific version. This is the version-view.

Managing the Roadmap

If you have the appropriate permissions you can change the Roadmap-view in two ways:

  1. You can attach a wikipage to the version (see ProjectSettings) which can be used for describing main objectives of the version etc.
  2. You can select the trackers of which individual issues, which are targetted to the corresponding version, are listed in a way that you will see an area with all related issues directly under the version. This behaviour can be changed as an administrator in the area of the trackers.

Sidebar

The contextual sidebar on the right of the roadmap provides several things:
  • a checkbox to include completed target-versions on the roadmap
  • checkboxes and an apply-button to include/exclude issues from specific trackers on the roadmap (which trackers are shown here with checkboxes depends on the individual tracker-configuration)
  • links to the configured target-versions of the project where each links to the roadmap itself starting with the selected target-version

Version overview

The version overview provides a detailed view of the current, overall state of a specific version. This includes:
  • a list of all the issues assigned to the specific version, including a progressbar which indicates overall active/done/closed-ratio based on the %-done and statuses of the issues, visualized by different colour-gradients
  • the content of the wiki-page that has been configured to be attached to the version
  • a block which shows the time-tracking totals of all estimated- and spent-time on the issues assigned to the version
  • a block which shows the issue-statistics using the same active/done/closed-ratio progressbar grouped by:
    • Assigned To Users
    • Authors
    • Categories
    • Priorities
    • Trackers

Both the "grouped by criteria" and the statistics itself (the number of issues) provides drill-down links to the issue-list which preloads the specific filters thus providing quick links to issues of a specific author, category, etc.

The version-view can be reached from the roadmap by clicking on a specific version.
