Adding the Progress field to Routemap

At the moment, Jira does not support fields for presenting task progress. However, you can create a custom field and add it to your Jira issues.

For Team-managed projects

From your project board, locate Project settings on the left column -> go to Issue types.

In the Field column on the right, you should find the Number field, and you can use it to create your custom "progress" field.

Set this number field name as Progress/Task progress for easy access.


Click Save changes.

Go to the Board settings in Routemap, and choose the project you want to map the progress field.

Now, you should find the field name you just created for mapping progress.

And this field will automatically synchronize with Routemap's progress feature.

For Company-managed projects

It is quite similar to Team-managed projects. Stills, there is a difference when you have to screen issues to create a custom field for Progress.

From your Company-managed project board, go to the Project settings.

Now, you can configure this Number field as Progress to suit your needs and click Create.

After that, you will have to associate this custom field with the screens that you want to use it on. Normally, you can just check the box for Default Screen and that’s it. However, if you plan on using different Screens, you can decide which ones will use this custom Progress field.


Once done, you can click Update.

You will now be taken back to the Custom fields page. You can find the new custom field you created on this list and click project on the same line to see which Jira company-managed project is applying the Progress field.

Now you can go back to your project board, and you will find this Progress field in your Jira ticket. This progress will also synchronize with the progress feature in Routemap.
