Rally: Why Milestones always show up on Portfolio Timeline App


Article ID: 255731


Updated On:


CA Agile Central SaaS (Rally)


In the portfolio Timeline view, milestones always show up. (Whether I select the Workspace Scoped Milestones or Not. ). This makes the view messy and unusable. We need a way to NOT show milestones )

Also, I can't change from % done by count to % done by points in this view. This also makes it unusable. 


Release: SAAS


Please note that the Rally Product team switched from the Portfolio Timeline app to the Timeline page in order to provide the application with more functionality (such as the option to conceal milestones), but it was never aimed to make the new Timeline available as an app. 


1. Please replace the Timeline APP with the Portfolio Timeline page using a custom URL (Recommended)

  • You can use the URL of the Portfolio--->Timeline page with the Custom URL app and it will show the timeline page on your dashboard.  The Timeline page supports the %Done by points as well.
  • Users can view with no milestones and progress in points:



2.  Community Timeline: ""

We discovered a similar app that does not display milestones and offers the option to display percentages as points rather than counts. 

Note: Please read all of the instructions carefully. Although this community app has been vetted, Rally Assistance does not provide support for it. 
Please ask the community for assistance if you have any queries about this app.
