Add ability to define timeframe by multiple quarters for Now, Next, Later Roadmap

Who would benefit?

Any user who is using the Now, Next, Later roadmap and defines their timeframes by quarter.

What impact would it make?

This would enable additional flexibility for more 'ambiguous' timeframes (i.e Next)

How should it work?

Allow user to define the number of quarters for a given timeframe. For example, in screenshot below the example shows the ability to define Next as the next 2 quarters.

    The Now, Next, Later view is really promising, but doesn't quite hit the mark for us either. I would suggest allowing us to define those based on the Status of Initiatives instead of dates - something along the lines of Now = In Progress, Next = Next Up, Later = Not Started. Some Initiatives currently being worked on (Now) may take longer to deliver than the current quarter and we often won't have dates especially for the Next and Later items.

    Until then, we've created a Pivot view that delivers a structure that meets our needs - it is just not as interactive (and can't show the images).

    Now is typically the work that is underway and committed to and so the immediate quarter is fine. I would like to define Next as the following 2 quarters, or perhaps even 3. Next should have a little more flexibility in definition. Managing by date requires ongoing maintenance the could be avoided.
