Timeline Overview

The Timeline feature allows users to create a visual representation of the task schedule for a project. This feature helps project managers and team members to track project progress, identify potential roadblocks and dependencies, and adjust the project plan accordingly.

The timeline displays tasks with Issue hierarchy in Jira, start and end dates, duration, and other relevant information. It provides a clear overview of the project schedule, making it easier to understand and communicate project status to stakeholders.
