The Parking Lot is a place for your future opportunities. It also provides a great way to create a backlog of ideas that you’ll use for discussion and prioritization.

To get started, you can either add a new item to the Parking Lot, or import your existing roadmap data. You can import from a spreadsheet, or directly from an integration, like Jira or Trello.

After adding items to your Parking Lot, you can add information by clicking into any column, or from the pencil icon in the Actions column. You can also sort your Parking Lot by any column except for Tags. Drag and drop items in the list to re-prioritize them.

When ready, you can drag Bars onto the Roadmap from the Actions column, or select multiple Bars you want to move and click “Move to Roadmap”. If you’ve selected their Lane and Legend values, that will be carried over as well.

To move a Bar on the Roadmap back to the Parking Lot, simply right-click the bar and choose “Move to Parking Lot.” You can also select multiple Bars on your Roadmap to send them back to the Parking Lot.

From the Planning Board you can select any item from your Parking Lot for scoring and further prioritization.

Please Note: If your Parking Lot has hundreds of items on it, you may experience slower performance. Our latest update to the Parking Lot is our first step towards improving this. Please contact support@productplan.com if you have any questions.
