Roadmaps without Dates. (Now, Next Future) Merged

Guys, please allow for a roadmap without dates which is more like a kanban model. Your competitors are doing this already: https://www.prodpad.com/blog/how-to-build-a-product-roadmap-everyone-understands/

 

This is becoming a trend in product-centric organizations where the Roadmap and the Release Plan are very different things. There was a previous post from 2017 in which someone asked for this feature and it was tagged as "Already Exists." It does NOT already exist. The problem is not creating a report that looks like this, or a workaround in which we use the feature board or parking lot for this, there is an actual need for real Roadmap that works this way. Now / Next / Future (or Later) roadmaps are becomming more and more common, and are VERY useful. They can easily be linked to more traditional date driven roadmaps, but they are a different beast.

 

The idea has been around for a long time and would be VERY easy to implement. It's actually holding me back from fully adopting Aha.io in my organization as we are trying desperately to move away from date driven thinking.

    We are doing a Now/Next/Future model with several of our products but we have to use parking lots for Next & Future which basically disables effective reporting on anything past the Now bucket.  So, I agree there is a weak workaround but the capability does not exist as a real production worthy workflow.
