From the releases view
You can jump to the releases view of your plan, to grab a high-level view of how work is tracking. More importantly, this will help you realistically determine if your teams can complete the work assigned to the releases in your plan.
Releases view, with sample releases
In the example above, you can quickly see the releases that are on track and off track. As long as the start and end dates of the issues fall within the start and end dates of their corresponding releases, then the releases stay on track.
- For project releases, view the release in Jira, to see a condensed list of all the issues assigned to that release, and possibly to change the release dates as needed.
You can also track the progress of releases directly in the timeline section of a plan.
Sample plan with releases in the timeline
Green icons represent releases that are on track, while red ones are for releases that are off track. As long as the start and end dates of the issues fall within the start and end dates of their corresponding releases, then the releases stay on track. Click on an icon to view more details about the release, and more importantly, to determine how you can fix the state of off track releases.
The number of releases could accumulate over time, which can make it hard to navigate from one release to another on the timeline. There may be times when releases are only one day apart, or there may be multiple releases scheduled on the same day.
If this happens in your plan, try doing one of the following:
|Jumping from one release to another|
While jumping from one release to another, the details of each release will be displayed accordingly.
Sample multiple releases on the timeline
|Viewing details of multiple releases|
Occasionally, you may see a number above a release icon. In the sample release below, the number denotes that there are 2 releases scheduled on the same day.
Click on the release icon to see the releases scheduled for that day, and then click the right arrow of each release to view more details about it.
If there are any releases that you want to keep an eye on, you can highlight these releases on your timeline. This helps make any relevant releases stand out in your timeline.
Click the Highlight on timeline check box, and the release will be displayed with either a red or green line in the timeline.

You can also filter issues by a release, which will display the corresponding issues filtered by sprint in the roadmap view.
You can also filter issues by projects, which will display only the releases of the relevant projects. To further narrow down on the release details, consider filtering the issues by a single project.
