Using the Private URL Feature, you can embed and share your roadmap without requiring users to sign in to ProductPlan. You can embed your Roadmap in any web page that allows an iFrame, or in wiki products like Atlassian Confluence, Microsoft Sharepoint, Google Sites. You will need to understand how to include an iFrame in your particular website. To embed your Roadmap:

  1. Use the Share button on your ProductPlan roadmap to generate and copy a Private Link.
  2. Create or edit the page where you would like your roadmap to appear.
  3. Paste the Private Roadmap URL you copied in an iFrame to generate your roadmap.

If you are using an iFrame, here is some suggested code:

<iframe src="https://app.productplan.com/p/YOUR-PRIVATE-LINK" scrolling="yes" height="800px" width="1200px"></iframe>

Embedding Your Roadmap in Google Sites

Google Sites recently updated to a new UI. You now have the option to use “Classic” or “New” Sites. If you are using Classic, you can embed your roadmap using a Google Gadget. Just search for the iframe gadget in order to embed your roadmap.

In order to embed in the New Google Sites, you’ll need to use an Embed Code:

  1.  Click “Embed”.
  2.  Select “Embed Code”
  3. Paste the following formatting, replacing your private link url in the correct place:<iframe src="https://app.productplan.com/p/YOUR-PRIVATE-LINK" scrolling="yes" height="800px" width="1200px"></iframe>
  4. On the preview, you can resize the embedded box to display more of the roadmap. You can also try adjusting the height and width settings to see if that makes a difference.

Embedding Your Roadmap in Confluence

Atlassian Confluence is a great way to create product or marketing team pages. Many ProductPlan customers are taking their pages a step further and integrating their live roadmaps directly into Confluence. This can give stakeholders throughout your organization easy access to your latest roadmap.

To embed your Roadmap in Confluence:

  1. Use the Share button on your ProductPlan roadmap to generate and copy a Private Link.
  2. In Confluence, create or edit the page where you would like your roadmap to appear.
  3. Click Insert / Other Macros, then choose the iFrame macro (note that the availability of this macro depends on your version and whether your administrator has enabled it).
  4. Insert the following minimum information:The Private Link URL you copiedWidth (try 1200)Height (try 800)
  5. Click Save.

That’s all there is to it. Anyone with access to your Confluence page will be able to view and interact with your ProductPlan roadmap without needing to sign in.

If the iFrame Macro isn’t available to you, the HTML macro is an alternative approach described here.

 

Enterprise Customers using SSO Please Note: If your team has private link sharing restricted via the SSO, you can only view the embedded roadmap if you’re signed into the SSO. If you are not logged in, you will not be able to login via SSO on embedded roadmaps as SSO providers will not not allow their login panel to be displayed in an html iFrame for security purposes.
