Link "ideas" portal comments to promoted "features"

When one promotes an "idea" to a "feature", the comments for the "idea" remain in the "idea" and don't move to the "feature".  It would be very helpful if the features from an "idea" would seamlessly be available in features (even if it were just a tab next to the existing tabs for public/private comments.

    Thanks for all of the upvotes, all.  We're using the Jira integration so it would be an added bonus having the initial "idea" comments also sync to "features" where they'd ultimately make their way to Jira.

    I'd like to add a nudge to this one as the segregation of idea and feature comments is definitely a challenge.  Thanks!

    Hi Aha group - this seems fairly popular.  Any thoughts here?

    This has been a major blocker for us as well.  It's more than just comments.

    We ask idea submitters to prioritize their features and let us know how we rank against the competition, plus who the originator was.  None of this info transfers over to the feature list when an idea is promoted to feature.

    This definitely gets my upvote.  I'm hopeful our friends at Aha can sync the rest of the idea fields too.

    I agree - I'd love to see comments carry over. I'm gathering quite a bit of useful information when assessing the idea and it's annoying that the comments only stay with the Idea. Ideally, they would simply carry over with the feature and somehow be flagged or marked as commentary that took place while the feature was an idea. Perhaps a "show idea comments" that you could check or uncheck. In short, yes... please implement. I know it's flagged as "likely to implement", but the sooner the better. :)

    I just came to request the same thing. Please do this!

    This is very important to the Charter team.  We have many ideas that have attachments.  We use AHA to enhance our website.  So we get design specifications which are needed by the developers who are in JIRA.  We also get bug tickets which have screen shots of issues that need to go to the developers.

    I have voted for this issue.  I hope you consider moving it up in priority to help remove the manual task of moving the attachments to features.

    I'm new to and am currently evaluating Aha! for our needs, and I'd consider this feature a basic, core functionality. I'd hate to have to be manually syncing the comments from the idea over to the feature.

    After 4 years and 86 votes, surely it's time to get this implemented!  The comments on ideas often provide useful extra information for developers but are difficult to reach from (say) JIRA.
