Managing Item Attributes

You can change all of the settings for a custom attribute, but the only settings you can manage for attributes of linked roadmap items are the following:

  • change color from the color set on the source item (for example, if another item in the roadmap is the same color) or reset the color to the default color on the source item
  • hide the attribute from being displayed in the roadmap
