  4. Click on the Configure icon, and then select from any of the follow options:

Option Description
Group By Displays portfolio items in groups.
Color By Displays portfolio items by color type.
Start Date The anchor date for the roadmap. Enter the beginning date of the current period. You won't need to update the Start Date as time moves on. The roadmap is smart enough to understand when the current period starts based on the originally entered Start Date, so this is really a 'set it and forget it' entry.
Intervals per Period Allows you to have periods of 1 Quarter or 10 Weeks. It is used in combination with the Column Interval to determine the length of each columnar period.
Column Interval Choose between Weeks, Months, Quarters and Years. It is used in combination with Intervals per period to determine the length of each columnar period.
Previous Periods It is often helpful to see what was scheduled for at least the last period. Some groups want to understand more of the recent history. This allows you to keep some amount of history visible when using your roadmap by controlling the number of periods to show before the current period.
Future Periods How far out do you want to plan? This sets the number of periods you will see after the current period.
