Master features are used to group features that share a common business objective. They can be used to manage groups of features that reside in multiple products across multiple releases.
This idea is to be able to view master features as containers on the gantt chart -- similar to the current view that shows features in release containers.
The master feature container could be expanded or collapsed to see the features within it
There should also be some indication of when releases will occur, but the master feature container would not fall inside any one release
|Release time frame|
