Show the relationship between Epics and Initiatives on Starter Roadmap

On the starter roadmap, there is no relationship shown between the master features and initiatives. It has to be manually created (e.g move the master feature underneath the initiative), which is error prone and time consuming.


It would be great if the relationship should be shown. An initial solution would be to represent the link in the same way Features are grouped with Master Features. This is where the Master Feature acts as a visual "bucket", within which its child features are stored.

    I think this would be a powerful feature also for us. At the moment is kind of confusing because it is not clear if an epic is already linked to an initiative and if so to which one. Additionally it would be really powerful to add the ability to create a link ("belongs to" relationship) between the records directly in the starter roadmap. At the moment if we create an initiative and an epic, in order to create the relationship we need to open the epic record and add manually the link to the initiative from the Overview tab or from the related tab. This is really time consuming and not very user friendly.

    Team, well the comments and votes here are relatively small, there is a HUGE number of related ideas all asking for the same thing dating back to 2017. We need to be able to cascade initiatives --> Master Features --> Features to provide clean roadmaps with the proper granularity optionally available. Can you please consider updating based on the large number of ideas related to this same feature.

    Would be great if there was a way for initiatives to show all the master features it contained in the Features Starter Roadmap, the same way there is a dropdown for master features to show all the features it contains.

    Since the purpose of using the roadmap views is to show related initiatives, master features and features in relation to each other, it's important that these items are grouped together in the roadmap. Adding something new drops it to the bottom which is not a great experience. The drag and move feature only allows movement within the visible area of the screen so to re-order I often have to move each item many times. Accidentally dropping an item being moved into the wrong place causes it to be hidden in a grouping or on top of another feature and disappear. Sorry, but that is really clunky. In the same way that features get grouped into master features within the roadmap, these sub-groups should also be visually grouped under their related initiatives as well to make it the most logical presentation of a roadmap possible. Thanks!  


Visually wrap Epics and Activities into Initiatives in Starter Roadmap

Currently it is possible to drag Activities into an Epic and have it visually look 'enclosed' inside an Epic. Would be great if then it can visually enclose into its related Initiative. It will make visualising which Epics belong to which Initiati...
