We have mandatory fields when creating initiatives, master features and features. These can be avoided when creating records via the Starter Roadmap, User Story Map, Strategy roadmap and Gantt views (there are probably some others I'm missing here).
This causes two problems:
1. Our hierarchy misses bridges. For example, a product initiative will not have a "Roll up initiative" set when created via one of the above methods. This makes data incomplete, and reports will be inaccurate.
2. Some mandatory fields are dictated by what is in Jira (for example Team). If a user misses adding a Team in Aha, and tries to send it to Jira, they will receive an error. This causes some frustration, and extra time taken.
It would be good to avoid both of the above scenarios!
