Show progress on all features automatically

It's fantastic to be able to display progress (% complete) on features. Currently, you need to turn this on feature by feature.

I would love the ability to make this visible on all features automatically.

    Thanks for the idea!

    The progress field has been moved into custom layouts for you to manage. Click on a record's [...] menu, select Create/Edit custom layout, and manage your progress field along with other standard and custom fields.

    Please vote on this idea if you would also like to be able to set the default progress calculation. It will help us prioritize the idea separately from this idea's original intent. Thanks!

    I agree with "Guest" Just showing the progress field without the type of progress calculation is useless. We really need to be able to display the field and set its Progress Calculation to save the constant one-off effort to set the progress field Feature by Feature.

    Agreed, there should be a option to check a box or something, all items (in this case a Feature) across the platform have progress by default. I mean, do you even have a use-case for NOT having progress? just seems silly not to have it be there by default

    Hi Julie! It is the same progress field that existed before, no duplicate. We treat it as a standard field now that you can manage in your custom layout vs feature by feature for example.

    Hi. This feature request has not been solved. It's not about having the progress field on features by default. It's about having it automatically calculate the progress based on features completed.

    Hi - so if we are already using the Progress field, will we end up with 2 if we now use the custom progress field?

    +1 to comment around setting based on item (Feature vs Initiative vs etc.) as it will be different for different customers. You should allow us to set IF its turned on which setting to base progress off of. Then still allow for users to change itembyitem if needed

    I would like this enabled automatically on initiatives, not necessarily features. I definitely see the benefit of a flexible model where you can set globally how you would want this enabled by record type

    Would also like the ability to set this at the product line level

    Would be great to get this feature added. It is a very frustrating bit of manual process that could be easily eliminated.

    To amend the requirement slightly, it would be good to be able to select the default calculation method at product level.

    Ideally this whole feature would be an inheritable configuration option from product lines.

    We would like to use the progress bar feature, but we cannot practicelly use it until it can be enabled at the Workspace level.

    Once the item is in a "done" state it would be great if it would set the "progress" field to 100% (if this is not already listed as an option)

    Hi guys, I have an idea how to solve it: https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/A-I-8930

    Concur with the comments. Bulk edit is a one time manual update, but then still requires everyone to add it every time they create a record. This should be similar to the custom layout and cards where I can create cards with specific fields on them and add them to the layout; those layouts can be inherited or customized at the individual product level. Would love to understand the use case that indicated having this configurable and provided as optional at the record level was of benefit (e.g. why it is beneficial on just one record within that record type vs the entire grouping)?

    Until we have the ability to manage it to automatically be included, it provides limited value and is frustrating to our product team when it is not visible automatically - one more click.

    Agree - would like to have the ability to set default progress field "on" or "off".

    We are looking to have this functionality enabled as default on goals level.

    Would be nice if this was a customizable feature you could turn on and off for workspaces that want it by default versus others that may not.

    Agree with the vast amount of comments. We are keen on exposing our feature boards to Service and Sales, etc just so they can see true progress. While bulk edit is fine, I know we will forget to turn it on 100% of the time. As you can set the progress bar as part of an inherited custom card layout, it should just be displayed if it is part of the defined card layout.

    This is an amazing feature that adds considerable value to Aha, but not being able to globally switch on progress seems a bit weird!!  It would be great if this could be pushed up the priority list and moved up from likely to implement.

    Bulk editing is nice, but I want to be able to say on a product line and product level if I want progress bars to show automatically, or only when added. Let me set my own default, then deal with the ad hoc needs separately.

Batch add progress field to all features in a product or set it be added by default to all

I really like the new progress field that can be added but it takes a lot of time to add them one by one to a feature. Can we have a setting by product to add to all features in that product or a global setting to add them to all products.

Define the Progress field for each component (Features, Master Features, Releases) in product config

As a product manager I would like to be able to configure the progress field to appear on all components (Releases, Master Features, Features, Initiatives etc..) and set how each are determined in product configuration so that I don't have to add ...
