LABS 🧪: Share your roadmaps with external stakeholders and customers

Essentials_and_up.svg

Note: This article describes an experimental Labs feature, which may change without warning. If you're giving this feature a try, let us know your feedback by chatting with our Support team or starting a conversation in our Product Makers community!

Customers, prospects, and external stakeholders might request to have a more detailed look into your plans. This is why we recommend having approved customer-facing roadmaps to share with them.

By sharing or embedding your roadmaps you can ensure that your most important stakeholders and customers are well-informed and can help guide you to better outcomes.

In this article:

Sharing roadmaps publicly

To share your roadmaps publicly, open your roadmap, and follow these steps:

  1. Click the Share button (Lock.svg) in the top navigation bar of your roadmap.
  2. Toggle on the option: Grant anyone view-only access.
  3. Then, you can choose if you want to share a link (Copy link ) or get the embeddable code to embed your roadmap on an external platform (Copy Embed Code):

Note:
  • Any type of roadmap can be shared in this way.
  • The customer facing roadmap link is unique and different from your internal one.
  • You don’t need to republish changes but in some cases the shared link can take up to 1 hour to update. We’re working on real-time updates so this limitation is temporary while this feature is in labs.


Sharing restricted products

If you try to share a restricted product or feature on your customer-facing roadmap, we will show you a warning message. However, if you wish to still share the product you can click Copy link.

Embedding roadmaps

Embedding your roadmap is great for sharing a roadmap with customers on your website or sharing it with colleagues who have access to an internal wiki.

1. Click Share (Lock.svg) in the top navigation bar of your roadmap.
2. Toggle on Share a link with anyone.
3. Click the Embed button (embed.svg) to copy the iframe embed code.

You can paste the link in any place that supports an iframe and the viewers will be able to see and interact with your customer-facing roadmaps.

Embedding roadmaps in Notion

  2. Click the Embed option.
  3. Paste the iframe link of your customer-facing roadmap. Your roadmap will appear and you can resize it by dragging the edges:

Embedding roadmaps in Confluence

You can embed your customer-facing roadmap into your Confluence pages. To do that, follow these steps:

  1. In Productboard copy your roadmap link by clicking (Copy link copy.svg).
  2. In Confluence, click the Insert button (+) at the top.
  3. Select the iframe option.
  4. Paste the iframe link of your customer-facing roadmap in the URL input box.
  5. Resize your roadmap by changing the width and height values.

You can also add iframes to pages by using Confluence apps like iFrames for Confluence.

Limitations

There are some limitations in our LABS🧪 release you should be aware of: 

  • In some cases, the shared roadmaps can lag behind the internal one by up to 1 hour. If you make some changes to your internal roadmap, it may take up to 1 hour to show on the shared roadmap. We are working on automatically updated roadmaps so this limitation is just temporary.
  • You can't protect the roadmaps you share with a password.
  • You can’t show dependencies, effort, owner, user impact score, or tags on the shared roadmaps.

To check the progress on the items above, check our Portal.
