Roadmap Planner is a simple macro within Confluence that creates a map for projects. As well as displaying basic information about a project timeline, it can also be linked to more in-depth information on individual work packages. Roadmap Planner allows you to communicate how a project is progressing and also give viewers the level of detail they require.


Roadmap Planner has the following function:

  • allows you to present details on the progress of a project in the form of a simple Gantt Chart
