Future releases and limitations
Starting with Portfolio for Jira 2.17.1, the new planning experience can now be used in your production instances.
Note the following when using the new experience:
- Some features may not be complete just yet, as we're continuously iterating on these.
- Any pages discussing the new experience will not be available in the usual page sidebar.
We've linked the table of contents below, so you can easily navigate the documentation at any time.
We're also removing some functionality from the new experience, as we believe some features weren't providing the full value that we had envisioned. If required in your plans, you can still use the removed functionality by opting out of alpha.
Here are some of the items we're working on.

Take note of the following limitations.
| Optimization for Kanban teams |
|Parent issues don't inherit child issue details|
|Team members are now assignees when planning work|
|Individual capacity planning is replaced by team capacity planning|
Teams and sprints that have been set in Jira may not display in the plan
|3.0 plans remain visible after disabling alpha|
If you've opted out and have already disabled alpha in your instance, the existing 3.0 plans will still be displayed in your instance.

If you want to opt in and reenable an alpha plan:

|Cannot reorder columns in plans|
|Cannot view optimized, dynamic release dates|
|Minor change when entering estimates for issues |
In 2.0 plans, you can enter an estimate for an issue, then click the Enter key to move to the issue in the next row.

In the new experience, we've removed the following functionality:
We've removed stages and skills for the following reasons:
In current plans, you can use the scheduling factors section, to understand how issues are scheduled off your backlog, as well as why some issues aren't scheduled as expected.
In the new experience, this section isn't available anymore. If an issue is not scheduled as expected, you can manually reschedule the issue straight away.
This doesn't necessarily mean that the removal is final, nor does it mean that the functionality will be back in future releases. If you need the removed functionality in your plans, let us know via the Give feedback icon.
