Country field with flags that can aid visuals in reporting

Hello world,

I am using custom report to visualize gantty roadmap of features. For those features, I am showing fields: t-shirt size, name, status, MDs estimate, MDs spent, Country.

In case there are multiple countries selected for a particular feature, the custom chart becomes less transparent and difficult to read due to many country labels (and on top of that, this custom field of tags has colors..).

Natural way how to solve this would be to attach country flags instead of country labels (full names of countries, like e.g., Czech Republic). However, there is no such option in aha.

So I am proposing

a) aha develops native country field that would have the option of being visualized on roadmap with flags

or b) aha adds more general feature - tags custom fields would not only have editable color, but also editable "icon" so that my custom country field could have small flags as icons and those would be then useable in reporting via "tags field icon" field

Let me know what you think and don't forget to vote.. this is a money maker! :-)

    @nathaniel: you meant emojis within text? That works. But I don't know how to put there emoji of flags .. unless I find it somewhere and copy paste.

    Anyway, this could do the trick, but it is not very helpful as country field in my case gets mapping to JIRA item and needs to be worded out properly.

    Thanks for sharing this idea! It is possible to create pre-defined tag fields that contain both a custom color and emoji flag. We will continue to monitor feedback on this idea.
