Who would benefit?
What impact would it make?
Speed up the planning of new features and initiatives as we wouldn't be duplicating work and can see linked items
How should it work?
On the Whiteboad, we can already convert a box / item to an idea, epic, feature or initiative, however as we have a number of ideas, initiatives and features within Aha already, it would be great if there was a way to link items / boxes on the Whiteboad to an existing idea, epic etc, in a similar way to how we can already convert ideas to existing features, epics and initiative.
If we could do this, then it would make the whiteboard feature far more powerful for us as we wouldn't need to manually recreate / duplicate the items and there would be an easy way to see that they are linked to existing items.
There are a few ways to add your existing records into a whiteboard today:
Add a single record: Copy the URL of any idea, feature, epic, initiative, or goal, then paste it into your whiteboard. It will add a dynamic, linked record card so you can open and update your existing record.
Add records in bulk: From a Features board, Idea prioritization list, Feature prioritization list, or List report, click the Export button in the top right, and select Add to Whiteboard as shapes.
Let us know if there are other options that would be helpful for your work in whiteboards!
