The Objectives module (formerly "Roadmap") is a high-level board based on the concept of an agile schedule made up of Program Increments.
You can configure your Roadmap for Program Increments of specific duration. Once your Roadmap is properly configured, you can set your objectives for the coming PI.
There are two types of Objectives you can add to this Board:
- Jira Issue-based Objectives
- Basic Objectives
You can also track the status of your Objectives — see if they are still open, completed, failed, or abandoned, etc.
SAFe®-based Objectives module (formerly "Roadmap") is an effective tool that allows you to manage Program Increments and Iteration objectives.
Compared to the Board module, it focuses on high-level planning including forecasts and commitments, rather than particular tasks.

The table below describes the Roadmap's main features:
You can change the status of a Timebox in the Overview module or by clicking the "Info" icon in the Timebox header.
All the following transitions between statuses are allowed (edit mode needs to be enabled first).
