Ability to show 2 types of records in one column (master feature and feature records) but in different cells/rows in a Pivot report when the records are not linked.

In our configuration, we have either Epics(Features) or Master features linked to a Goal. In a pivot report, we want to show all Epics and Master Features linked to the Goal in one column.

For the report, the primary record is the Goal and Epics and Master Features are the records linked to it. In the data model when we include both Features and Master Features in the cells, each Epic appear against every Master Feature in the same row as if they had a parent-child relationship. We want Master Features and Epics to appear in different rows if the Epics don't belong to the Master Features

 

As a product/program manager I want to show master features and features as well as their status in one column in one report so we can use this one report in our exec scrum. 

Reasons:

  1. Showing 2 record types in a column makes the report more readable and concise.
  2. The only alternative is turning on the cell headers which does place the records in separate columns but the placement of records and its attributes (e.g MF/Epic status) is off. Makes the report less than ideal for exec reporting.

    This would be super useful of our exec reporting capability.  Currently the two records types show up in difference columns and this creates a poor exec user experience for us.  Its a difficult read of the data. I'd love to see a solution for this soon.

    Thank you for considering this reporting enhancement – this enhancement or any other type of solution would be helpful for our weekly exec scrum where we look at all of the work that ladders up to the quarterly goals

    This enhancement will allow to provide our execs with a clear status of the work being done by our teams, without the wrong perception that epics and master features are related when they aren’t.

    We're creating  a very influential, very strategic Aha! report for our technology executives that will enable us to better manage emergent roadblocks. Please consider this enhancement as critical path to our success in being able to make the best use of this tool.
