Plan upcoming releases
Coordinate dates, deliverables, and dependencies across teams to launch on time
Create a delivery plan
Your product roadmap is set. The next step is to create a cross-functional release plan. Use Aha! Roadmaps to coordinate every detail — whether you have one product or a portfolio. Create release templates with phases, milestones, and dependencies to establish repeatable processes tailored to your product development methodology. Prioritize features based on team capacity, visualize your launch schedule, and identify timing issues. Then share your plans with the broader team — so everyone knows what needs to be done and when.
Coordinate with engineering
Send epics, features, and requirements to the development team for implementation. Powerful integrations between Aha! Roadmaps and development tools — including Aha! Develop, Jira, and Azure DevOps — unlock a new level of visibility. Collaborate on new functionality and scope out technical details. Refine estimates for a clear picture into the effort needed to deliver the work. As your engineering or DevOps team plans upcoming sprints, see exactly when features will be released. This two-way exchange ensures that everyone is set up for success.
Monitor release progress
Stay informed of progress as work gets underway. Automatically sync statuses between Aha! Roadmaps and your development tool — to spend less time chasing down updates and more time delivering exceptional customer experiences. Report on dependencies, scope changes, and capacity constraints to spot risks before they become bigger issues. Quickly adjust your plan as necessary and keep the team aligned on the schedule. Create a release dashboard to proactively communicate how everything is progressing to leadership and other internal teams.
Aha! simplifies portfolio management. Our planning and release processes are much smoother now that we can coordinate all of our product activities in one place.Chris Brandt
