Roadmaps

The roadmap shows a timeline of all projects in your company's workspace.

Roadmaps add a high-level structure that organizes projects in your workspace. Create custom roadmaps to organize work in a single team or across your workspace.

All members of a workspace can view roadmaps, which means that your company's vision and direction is accessible to everyone at all times. Roadmaps help you make decisions and plan as you see projects and their expected completion dates on the timeline. The roadmap also gives meaningful context to daily project work which can help motivate the team members doing it.

Go to workspace Roadmaps settings to turn on roadmaps for your workspace. Once you do, the Roadmap icon will appear in the lefthand side bar, under Views.

With the introduction of this feature, we've removed Milestones. An admin will be prompted to convert Milestones to Roadmaps if you're still seeing the feature.

The Home view shows you every project in your workspace. From there, create custom roadmaps each with their own curated list of projects. For example, you could create a team-specific roadmap or one that includes projects slated for an upcoming launch.

Projects can be part of multiple roadmaps. Add a project from the roadmap or from the project details sidebar in the project view.

Roadmaps and project views can be viewed in a list or timeline. The list shows projects along with basic details including teams, status, and miniature graph. The timeline view shows the same project data but places projects as bars on a timeline graph.

Learn how we designed and built the timeline view in this video with the Linear team.

The All tab shows all projects on the roadmap. The Backlog tab shows any projects with that status. Planned and In Progress projects show up under the Active tab. Closed projects include those that have been completed or cancelled. The roadmap will open on the tab you last selected.

Our beloved Peek feature works for projects, too. Press Space to view project details. Learn more about Peek.

View the timeline in monthly, quarterly, or yearly timeframes. Dates display at the top in weekly intervals, based on a Monday to Sunday schedule and weekends are shaded out in the background.

Order projects manually, by last created, or by last updated. You can also group projects by project lead or status.

Filter any roadmap by these properties: status, content, lead, members, teams, created date, start date, updated date, target date, and health.

In any roadmap you can press CTRL/CMD+I to open the roadmap details pane.

This pane will show you an overview of the roadmap and it's projects contained within. Roadmap Owner, project count and teams associated with the roadmap will be listed here.
If using estimate, the scope will also be broken down here by team.

Project progress will also be indicated in the project graph depending on the each projects current status.
