With the release of Advanced Roadmaps (formerly known as Portfolio for Jira) 3.0 and later, the use of classic plans will not be supported. You will no longer be able to access or update any of your classic plans. We recommend that you migrate from classic plans to plans with the improved interface.

If you have any issues or concerns, let us know via portfoliofeedback@atlassian.com.

  1. 1. Understand the types of plans
  2. 2. Considerations before migrating
  3. 3. Migrate classic plan data to a live plan
  4. 4. Enable the improved interface in a plan

Before even considering migration, you first need to be able to distinguish between the types of plans. It might be the case that you don't really need to access a classic plan.

The easiest way to determine whether or not you're using a classic plan is based on the positioning of the timelineClassic plans have the timeline positioned at the bottom of your planning workspace.

Sample classic plan

Meanwhile, live plans (any version from 2.0 to 2.27) have the timeline positioned at the top.

Sample live plan

Lastly, plans with the improved interface will have the timeline positioned at the right of the scope section. This provides a more intuitive experience, where you can view your roadmap directly beside the data that corresponds to it.

Sample plan, with the improved interface

The improved interface offers a new way to visualize, groom, and communicate your roadmaps. Today, it includes the following features and more:

  • A complete refresh of the plan layout, making it easier to see the data that powers your roadmap
  • New drag-and-drop scheduling functionality, with enhanced coloring and grouping options
  • Improved dependency tracking, to instantly surface conflicting blockers for early and efficient resolution

Plans with the new interface are regularly being updated with more great features, with every version we release. Keep an eye on our release notes, to know what we're releasing with each version in the future.
