A CTO or product manager wants to know if a project is on schedule and over budget. GitHub is great at managing the code, but it’s not going to help you quickly show the team a project roadmap.
At Unito, we make it easy to sync GitHub and Asana to create a live roadmap.
Once you are up and running, use Unito to sync your GitHub repositories with Asana projects (a 30 second video tutorial).
Create the Roadmap
1. Create a project in Asana for your Roadmap.
2. Create a task for each of your roadmap items (e.g., features, epics, stories).
**Bonus Tip** Keep a section for each major milestone/phase/release and have a section for backlogged items that aren’t scheduled yet.
As items in the roadmap approach the next milestone, your broader team of marketers, designers, and project managers will naturally discuss and make changes. The best part is they can do all of this without bothering the developers over in GitHub!
Once a task is ready for development, add it to the appropriate GitHub project in Asana. It will automatically become a GitHub issue and carry over all the important information from Asana (e.g., assignee, tags, attachments, discussions, etc.)
Avoid small tasks crowding your roadmap with these techniques.
By having the relevant tasks for a developer appear in both Asana and GitHub, you are creating a roadmap that shows live progress.
