Roadmaps

Showing dependencies on your roadmap

Benefit

Logistical dependencies are useful to see on the roadmap when planning out your strategy, making sure that the outcomes you expect to achieve are feasible.

This is particularly important when working with a high volume of product roadmaps (maybe where your product roadmap is split by delivery team as opposed to user value), as dependencies like this could be spread across multiple roadmaps.

How to do it

Find the blocker card, prompt the slideout and grab the card’s URL.

Add the URL to the relevant blocked card, with a note to say what’s blocking it. For a little extra flair, use some emojis!

Add a "blocked" tag and use the filters to make sure you have the visibility needed.
