In my organization we need to sync features and releases in Aha to two different Jira projects.
One project receives 100% of the features and releases - perfect 1:1 sync.
But the other project is only for features that rely on the design team. So we only sync a subset of features to this Jira connector.
We have observed that if I create a release that is unsynced, fill it with unlinked features, and sync the release... then the release is synced as are all of the child features.
This is a great time-saver for sure.
However, this results in features getting synced to the Design Project in Jira that we don't want to.
The idea is this:
When a release sync is triggered, surface a modal dialog that asks, "do you want to sync all features as well? [Yes] [No]
Thank you for your idea. One suggestion that could help to improve this workflow would be to use bulk edit to send features to your design team. This would allow you to select all the features you need to send and send them all at once.
Sending the features rather than the release will give you more control over which features are sent to the design team's project.
Given the option above and historical feedback in this area, we are unlikely to implement this idea at this time. We hope you can understand.
