Stages are groups of your project activities in a sequential way from start to finish. To add a stage from the Roadmap, simply click on the Add a Stage button and input your stage details.

Enter your sprint details and click Submit
Note that you can add as many sprints as you want in a single stage.
If you're still in the planning phase, you can also add sprints without the stage at first and then just add them later.
If you have already defined your stages and sprints, you can add topics to them by simply clicking on the stage/sprint card in your timeline, then click on the Create a topic button.
Enter your topic details then click Create
Now, your topics are listed in the stage/sprint, and you can manage them easily!

Timeline views are different formats that you can view your roadmap calendar in. Each view will arrange your calendar data into a different layout and specify how much of your calendar data you can see at once. You can choose between Weekly and Monthly view.
In the Roadmap, you can easily switch your calendar between different types of views by using the buttons in the top-left part of your calendar.
Weekly view is the default view when you access the Roadmap. It will organize your calendar by units of a week and give you a larger timeline than month view does.
Monthly view allows you to glance at a compressed version of weekly view in each month at once.
