Advanced Roadmaps integration vs. the Advanced Roadmaps built-in PDF exports

You may want to ask: if Advanced Roadmaps has a built-in PDF export feature, why would you use another app for the same?

While the Advanced Roadmaps built-in PDF exports may be sufficient for basic use cases, the Better PDF Exporter integration is more powerful in, at least, these:

If any of these are important for you, give it a try.

Tutorial video

The Better PDF Exporter app enables exporting the portfolio items (which are issues themselves) to customizable PDF documents. (Although the video below was captured about the app's Server version, the Cloud version is very similar.)

Advanced Roadmaps PDF export samples

Issue with Advanced Roadmaps fields

This is the export of an Epic-type work item from an Advanced Roadmaps plan. It contains all the Advanced Roadmaps specific custom field values in addition to the built-in ones.

Issue list with Advanced Roadmaps fields

This sample is the export of a plan built with Advanced Roadmaps, including Initiative, Story and Task type work items (issues). It is exported from the Issue Navigator using a custom column configuration, which includes all the Advanced Roadmaps managed custom fields plus Epic Link.

Configuration

Exporting Advanced Roadmaps custom fields

There is nothing to do. Better PDF Exporter will automatically recognize the Advanced Roadmaps-managed fields and export them accordingly.

Exporting issues in an Advanced Roadmaps plan

Advanced Roadmaps offers a general-purpose JQL function to find issues in plans recursively. Use this JQL function in the Issue Navigator to search for the issues to export, sort the issues, then export the result using Better PDF Exporter.

To search for the issues in an Advanced Roadmaps program, use this JQL:

issuekey in portfolioChildIssuesOf(FOO-12,FOO-34)

...where "FOO-12" and "FOO-34" are the top-level portfolio items.

Exporting issues of a certain type in an Advanced Roadmaps plan

To search for the issues of a certain issue type, i.e. for the issues on one level in an Advanced Roadmaps plan, use this JQL:

issuekey in portfolioChildIssuesOf(FOO-12,FOO-34) and type = "Story"

...where "FOO-12" and "FOO-34" are the top-level portfolio items.

Exporting issues within the hierarchy, by team and by target dates

Similarly to the use cases discussed in the previous sections, you can use JQL to search for:

  • the issues linked via the Parent Link custom field
  • the parents of issues
  • the children of issues
  • the issues assigned to a team

See the Advanced Roadmaps documentation for examples.
