ent (1).svg

Note: This feature is currently available for invited participants in our private beta.

We are introducing a new high-performant, modernized Timeline roadmap. With this new board, you can clearly visualize Objectives, Initiatives, and Features regardless of complexity, making it that much easier for your teams to stay aligned. Our goal is to improve this new Timeline roadmap further so it will support all key use-cases of the existing Timeline roadmap and much more!
