Why are Whiteboards a great solution for creating and managing roadmaps?

(D)etailed

The level of details of a product backlog item depends on how close the item is to the top of the list. With the Whiteboards app, you can easily change the order of issues and edit them to add more clarity as they reach the top of your backlog.

(E)stimated

Magic Estimation area can be added to your board to estimate issues using the relative estimation approach. With Update Zones, it is easy to assign and update story points estimation. Just drag the issue to the corresponding place on your board and drop it there.

(E)mergent

To keep a product backlog up to date, it should be continuously revised and updated. Whiteboards allow to close obsolete issues and add new ones collaboratively during backlog refinement events in a couple of clicks.

(P)rioritized

Eisenhower matrix, MoSCoW, ICE, or RICE prioritization frameworks are supported in Whiteboards out of the box. With the Issue Table feature, you can use any custom field to rank your issues based on your business needs. What about voting? Of course, we have it in Whiteboards.
