Tutorials and tips

During the first launch, the setup guide will appear. If not, you can always trigger it by rapidly pressing W 3 times in a row (WWW). It consists of 3 steps.


Sync mode

This can be also configured and change in the Program's configuration. We have described the modes in detail here: Program-specific#specific-Roadmap, but just to recap:

FeatureManualSmall TeamLarge Team
JIRA Scrum Boards sync


Single Sprint per column, up to 7 on screen


Multiple Sprints per column


In Manual mode, you can drag and drop to your heart's content, as this will not affect anything in JIRA at all. Recommended for playing around and Waterfall projects with pre-defined work that only needs to be manually updated from time to time. In such a mode, Manage Roadmap will not even appear.

Small Team mode synchronizes bi-directionally with JIRA Sprints. This means that moving your tasks around will change their Sprints, and changing Sprints will affect the Roadmap. This is recommended for Agile teams who use a single Board for everyone or the vast majority of people, as each Cadence represents only a single Sprint. In this mode, the Roadmap is essentially a multi-Sprint view of a single board with enhanced capabilities (timeline, issue links, Cadence backlogs). This mode assumes all plugin Teams use the same board

Available only in the Enterprise edition of BigPicture, Large Team mode also syncs with JIRA Sprints. Recommended for adopters of  The Scaled Agile Framework®. In this mode, each team has their own Board, and a Cadence rolls up the work of all teams in many Sprints on many Boards into a single Cadence. Great for large-scale companies as it provides the big picture of all the Agile things on a single screen.

Cadences

These are the time periods your roadmap will be divided into, each mapped to different Sprints. You can automatically create them in bulk on the screen below, as well as customize the auto cadences we create with the pencil icon and then edit or delete them.

Obviously, you can also delete, edit and add them afterwards.

Teams

If you have already visited the Teams section, you will see all your Teams here and can skip this step. Otherwise, on this very screen you can catch up and create some teams right away.

Agile sync

If you have selected the Small Team or Large Team mode, then the last piece of configuration is to tell the plugin which Sprints it should use, This is done by clicking the Manage Roadmap button.

Once in this mode, a Sprint selector will appear on every Cadence. Select the Sprints you desire, click OK to confirm every of them. When done, simply click Manage Roadmap again. This should reload the screen and pull in your tasks.

Having your Sprints selected, the configuration is done.
