When creating a Custom View, you can pivot the layout of your Roadmap into a column based Kanban Style View. 

List View is a great option for users who want to move away from being tied to specific dates or deadlines and would prefer to have a high level timeline or theme based Roadmap. When creating a List View in ProductPlan, users have the option to have their columns based on either timeline (months, quarters, or sprints) or attribute based columns (such as tags).

To create a List View go to the drop down next to the "Roadmap" button as you would with a standard Custom View. From the Layout Tab in your Custom View window, select the List View option.

List View by Timeline

To create a List View by timeline click on the "Style" Dropdown and select whether you want your columns to be based on Quarters, Months, or Sprints. 

Items in a Timeline-based List View will be listed by release date, meaning items in each column have an End Date that corresponds to the column's time frame. 

By default, items will be listed alphabetically, however you can drag and drop to reorder items in your columns or between columns. This will update the bar's dates on your Primary Roadmap View as well. You can also drag and drop new bars, containers, or lanes to your List View from the right hand side as well.

List View by Tag

To create a List View by tag click on the "Style" Dropdown and select the tag option. From the filter tab, you can select which tags you'd like to include for your columns.

Items in the columns will be listed alphabetically. You can drag and drop full columns horizontally to re-order them. Currently, List View by tag is View Only. Editable Tag View will be available in the near future. You can still move items between columns by opening the bar description and changing the bar or container's tags. 

You can add or remove Tag columns to your Custom View at any time by going into the View Settings and selecting or deselecting the tag from the Filter tab. 

FAQ

What if my bar or container has multiple tags?

If an item has multiple tags, it will appear in all columns that correspond to the tags. 

What if a bar inside a container is tagged, but the container is not?

If the bar is tagged, but not the container it will appear in its corresponding column and the container will appear lighter to indicate that it is not tagged. 

What if a container spans multiple timeline based columns?

In a timeline based List View, items will only appear in the column that corresponds to their end date. If a container spans multiple columns, it will show up in any of the columns that one of its underlying bars falls under. You'll see a split in the end of the container to indicate it spans multiple columns.
