Viewing and searching features for shipped releases

It's not possible to see feature list in shipped release at all. Searching for features doesn't bring it up either. If this tools comes to replace PRD/ERD - deleting any record of implemented features is not a good idea.

    Thank you for your idea. The global search (in the top right corner of the main navigation bar) will search all features -- including shipped features. For the use case you mentioned -- finding past features to determine which release they were shipped in, we would recommend using the global search.

    The problem is that if you tried to edit the release field of a shipped Master Feature (was inputed wrongly), the feature gets assigned to the ongoing release of a future release (the shipped real release is not in the list). After that, you cannot correct it, as the shipped release is gone. What is the logical action in this case? Delete the feature???

    Global search assumes that I know the name of the feature. What if I just want to see what was shipped in a previous release? Sometimes, I do see the past releases listed on the feature board -> release dropdown and sometimes not. It just seems buggy.

    I agree with Mokshi, you have to know the name you’re searching for. I want to be able to just filter and say show me shipped release/filters vs ones not yet shipped.

    I just tried searching on my mobile device for one I know I shipped yesterday to grab a screenshot for someone and it does not find it. What is the solution for that? With the ability to have attachments and mockups, notes, etc we have to be able to easily access these items.

    Agreed!!!!  I've been using AHA for years now and I can't believe this dosen't exist. 

    As a use case for you, I'm now in a new team and trying to understand features that have been shipped previously. I don't know the names of them so I can't search them. There is simply no way for me to see previously shipped items and that seems absolutely crazy to me!


    It has bothered me all this time as it would far easier to just be able to filter on shipped releases and easily see how a product has come together.

    Hi there, one suggestion here would be to use the Features > List. Adding the Release status filter and setting it to shipped will show you all features in shipped releases. Does this help you get what you need for your use case? Thanks!

    Thanks Austin, That is sort of what I wanted. But I can still not see what feature was in release unless I only filter one release at a time. I couldn't see a way to add a "Release" column to allow me to get the view I want.

    Ideally the features board should be able to show you shipped releases as well. for a full story of your product!

    Great, it sounds like you are getting closer. You can add the release column by clicking + icon after the last column and selecting Add data column. When you click this, you will see a list of all the columns in your report. If you click Add records related to Feature you can select Release and add any release columns you need.

    Another option to consider to show the full story would be user story maps. Shipped releases and features do remain on the story map.
