How can I associate multiple timelines to a feature?

I would like to associate 2 different timelines to a feature so that I can have 2 roadmaps as follows:

  • A roadmap that is shared with all stakeholders where the start date shows when the feature has started analysis and the end date when it will be available for customers.
  • A roadmap that is shared with the tech team where the start and end dates show when developers have started and will end their implementation.

The second roadmap/plan is used with the tech team to plan work and prioritise, while the first one is used to communicate start and delivery dates of features (in general - not just dev work).


For example:

Feature X will be ready from dev in June, however due to testing and release schedules, the feature will be available to customers in August.

  • In the stakeholder roadmap, I would like to show August as the end of the feature
  • In the dev roadmap, I would like to see June as the end of the feature and devs can work on something else in July and August.

You can only have one timeline (specific or high-level) on a feature, but you can use timelines and releases to achieve something similar.

Your first roadmap for stakeholders you can use a timeline. For the one for your devs, you can use one or more releases.

Typically rather than there being a dev specific roadmap, teams integrate with JIRA or ADO and simply monitor progress of the work
