Put the current product at the top of every Initiatives and Goals pick list to save users lots of time

Currently, when you open the initiatives picker, it just shows all initiatives grouped by workspace, with those workspaces being in alphabetical order.

This is a a hassle because I would almost always want to link to an initiative within the workspace I'm in, or in workspaces higher in the hierarchy (division/company level, etc)

On top of that, with releases after you select a single initiative it jumps you back up to the top again, forcing you to scroll (or search) again to find the initiatives

Selecting initiatives for a release, much scrolling is required:

You can type to search, but I would argue most people would not have all of their current initiative names committed to memory.

Suggested change:

  • Put the initiatives/goals for the workspace in which the record lives at the top of the initiatives/goals pick list so they are easily accessible. The rest can just be in alphabetical order.

  • More complex but maybe better version - after the current workspace at the top, list the rest in reverse hierarchy order until the top of the hierarchy, then alphabetically after that.
