The Basis

Document-Based App

"Roadmap for macOS" is a document-based app, the users have full control of how to store and share the file.

Welcome Window

Run the Roadmap app, and we will be guided to the welcome window. We can access the recently accessed roadmap files, or load a roadmap by browsing a .rdmap file on the Mac device. Also, we can create a new roadmap file by clicking the "+" tile.

Roadmap Window

A roadmap document displays in a roadmap window, with below the major layout.

Roadmap Chart

Roadmap tasks are organized in sections and rows.

  • A task can NOT overlay another task. (So usually Roadmap app is used for product roadmaps and high-level project plans. For the accurate project schedule, we have the QuickPlan app designed for).
  • Section Lane display style is customizable (Right-click on a section lane to customize the section lane display style).
  • App provides gestures and context menus to maintain the sections and rows.

Press ⌘⌥^ (Command + Alt + Ctrl) to show shortcut tips in the active roadmap window.

Please check out following frequently used shortcut keys before getting started, and we can find more keyboard shortcuts from the app menu.
