Future releases and limitations



アトラシアン コミュニティをご利用ください。


We're working on more features for the new planning experience, and we'll incrementally release these features. As such, there are limitations to take note of.

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 the new experience.

Future releases

Here are some of the features we're working on:

New features in the new experience

1 課題詳細ビュー
  • At the moment, clicking an issue in your plan will open the issue in Jira.
  • We're working on an issue detail view that opens up when you click the issue. This lets you surface additional issue details without having to leave the context of your plan.
2 Visual customization

We're adding more ways for you to visually customize your plan, to make it just right for you and your audience. See Customizing view settings for more details.

Features we're considering in the new experience

1 Flexible coloring options
  • We're currently looking into flexible coloring options to replace the main value of themes in previous plans, which is providing your audience a visual way to distinguish different themes in a plan at a glance.
  • If you have any ideas and suggestions on coloring options in the new experience, let us know by clicking the give feedback icon in your plan.
2 Reporting functionality

Reporting functionality is currently limited in the new experience. However, we're currently building more working views that can be shared as reports to relevant audiences.


Take note of the following limitations:

Auto-scheduling limitations

1 Auto-scheduling not available for Kanban teams
  • At the moment, plans that use the Kanban methodology cannot be auto-scheduled directly. These are the plans that use Kanban boards for issue sources, or have teams using the Kanban scheduling methodology.
  • As a workaround, set the scheduling methodology to Scrum for the Kanban team in the teams view.

Lead time in dependency details is not an auto-scheduled value

(info) When you're auto-scheduling your plan, note that the lead time that appears in the dependency details is not an auto-scheduled value.

Compatibility limitations

1 Limited browser compatibility We highly recommend you use Chrome or Firefox as your browser. You can also use Internet Explorer 11 and Safari — we've fixed some issues specific to these browsers in the latest version.

Layout limitations

1 Cannot sort columns in plans
  • It's a familiar operation to sort columns, especially since you can do this in the current plans.
  • At the moment, it's not possible to sort columns in 3.0 plans. Though we unfortunately don't have a workaround for this, we are looking into building this in a future release.
2 Cannot reorder columns in plans
  • When working with columns, it's common practice to reorder columns by drag and drop.
  • At the moment, it's not possible to drag and drop columns in the new experience. See Displaying issue details for the current workaround.

Limitations with technical changes in the new experience

1 Support for custom fields

Though you can now add custom fields to your plan, this is currently limited to the following custom field types:

  • single-line text fields
  • single-choice select fields
  • multiple-choice select fields
  • date picker fields
  • number fields

We're still working on supporting more custom field types in future versions.

2 Status breakdown bar not displaying accurate information

In the new releases view, the status breakdown bar of each release displays the number of issues in the release. You can hover on the bar, to see the issues grouped by status category.

At the moment, the status breakdown bar only includes the details of the issues that are currently visible in the plan. This means that old releases may not have accurate information. We're still working on supporting this in the new experience. See Managing releases for more details.


Plans with the new experience remain visible after opting out

If you've opted out and have already disabled the new experience in your instance, the existing plans with the new experience will still be displayed in your instance.

We're not deleting any of these plans, to make it possible for you to reenable the new experience, in case you want to opt in again. However, accessing any of these plans will result into an error.

If you want to opt in again and use the new experience with your plan:

  1. Enable the new experience as an early access feature in your Jira instance.
  2. Enable the new experience for each plan in Portfolio for Jira as needed.

If you want to delete a plan with the new experience that you no longer need:

  1. Go to Portfolio (in header) > View Portfolio. This will display the 'Manage portfolio' page.
  2. Click more () for the plan you want to delete > Delete.
  3. In the confirmation message, click Delete.
4 Team members are now assignees when planning work
  • Though there are team members in the teams view, you now assign issues to assignees, and not team members anymore.
  • You can assign an issue to only one assignee.
5 Individual capacity planning is replaced by team capacity planning
  • We currently don't have the functionality of individual capacity planning. We're still considering how this will be implemented in the new experience.
  • At the moment, when auto-scheduling a plan, Portfolio for Jira will consider the total capacity of a team to complete the work being scheduled.
  • For Portfolio to do this, you must directly set team capacity in your plan.

Teams and sprints that have been set in Jira may not display in the plan

  • If a team or sprint is assigned in Jira, but these do not exist in Portfolio, then you cannot select this team or sprint in the fields section of your plan.
  • There is no workaround for this. The only way to have such teams and sprints display as options is to add these in your plan itself.
7 Minor change when entering estimates for issues

Previously, 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, you need to:

  1. Enter an estimate for an issue.
  2. Click the tab key on your keyboard. This will move your cursor to the estimate field of the issue in the next row.
  3. Repeat the above steps as needed.

Functionality removed

In the new experience, we've removed the following functionality:

1 ステージとスキル

We've removed stages and skills for the following reasons:

  1. There's low usage of stages and skills across Portfolio for Jira users.
  2. Stages require regular, manual maintenance, while skills require significant work to break down the skill estimates for each issue in a plan.
  3. Usage of stages and skills contradict with the workflows in Jira.
  4. Any data involving stages and skills only exist in a plan. With no way to integrate the data with Jira, this can lead to lack of transparency. This doesn't work with the direction we're taking in the new planning experience.
2 Scheduling factors

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 button in your plan.
