Allow custom field/feature values to be fed into scorecard

It would be useful to be able to expand the advanced scorecard functionality to dynamically pull values from other fields in Aha!

Primarily, allowing people to have an estimate value in their score card and have that value pull/push to an estimate value on the feature card.

    The example I think would be most useful is to automatically set the "Effort" slider based on the "Effort" field in Aha! (for example, the story points).

    This would also be helpful if you wanted to import from a spreadsheet and include these fields to set the scorecards.

    Would it be useful to have a custom field which can be an equation that produces a result based on other fields or score card metrics?

    Chris, that could be useful, but it seems confusing to me. How would this work in the UI?

    The way I envisioned this feature was that in the scorecard editor it would be possible to pull certain fields from the feature (in my case, the "effort field") as inputs into the scorecard equation.

    Good example: I would like to take the current Vote count on an idea and use it as a multiplier in the Score for that Idea.

    I would like to use the following: Effort based on effort (story points) and value based on sum of votes of ideas linking to this feature

  • Russell Swisher commented

    We'd like to be able to pull a numeric value entered from an idea submitted in the idea portal, and be able to use that within the formula for calculating the idea scorecard value.

    This enhancement would be excellent. It would have to be able to draw upon additional linked elements to replace some of the outside of Aha scoring that we do on various product roadmaps, though. In particular, access to linked initiatives from within the feature would be imperative or to sums across a release based upon included features would be necessary.

    Has there been any movement on this?

    We use "Effort" in our scoring, which is exactly equal to the value in the "Estimate" field. It would save us a lot of annoying duplicate work if the "Effort" part of the score could automatically update when the "Estimate" field is entered or updated, and would also avoid mistakes where the "Estimate" field is updated by the Score is not.

    This is very important for our company. It would be great to have the fields that fed into the scorecard to be visible and editable in other parts of the interface. We would like to be able to feed external information into the scorecard as well.

    I'll add my vote to this one. We use Effort in the score card, but it's an exact match for the feature estimate (which is calculated by the estimates of the feature's requirements). Allowing this to auto-update when the devs update the requirement estimates in Jira would be a huge boon to us.

    For completeness sake, here's a typical score calculation for us:

      (CustomerValue x weighting + PublisherValue x weighting) x (Deliverability / 100)  / If(Effort>0,Effort,1)

    Additional example & Suggestion:
    We rate our clients (Gold, Silver, etc.) and store client info (including rating) as a custom table.  We would like to include our client rating as part of the Aha score, potentially by associating a value or equation with each client rating value.  For example, add 10 point or Gold clients add 5 points for Silver. Or apply a 1.2 multiplier for Gold clients and a 1.1 multiplier for Silver clients.  Thanks for considering.

    I'd like to include the number of votes as a metric in the scorecard so drawing that in as a field would be ideal

  • Jessie Salzbrun commented

    Adding my vote here - my specific use case is this:

    We rate effort on a sliding scale in our Scorecard (points for front end/back end/mobile), which combine to make up the (+) portion of each feature's Score. We then sum the total effort scores (front end score + back end score + mobile score) to make up the aggregate Effort/Story Points. It would be great to sync those two, or to first score in the Effort field and have this flow into the Scorecard as a metric.

    I didn't go through all the comment below, but having tags or text also become metric source would be very useful.  For example, Technology A gets 20 points and Technology B gets 40 points etc and the mapping is defined as part of scoring system.  That will expand the scoring system to include non-numeric values.  Thanks!

    A use case that my organization would find beneficial is if dates in a custom field could be used to increase the scorecard rating as the date gets closer and closer.  This would essentially be saying "as we get closer to the target date, increase the score of the feature because it is more urgent".

    Our use for this is similar as some of the comments below. We have custom fields in our features where the responses are based on options from a drop down menu (that is not a #). We would want to be able to place a value on those options and than have the scorecard automatically calculate the values and produce a total. As others have said, this would remove the subjectivity of someone needing to choose a # from a scale. I need this capability today to help us prioritize our work.

    We would find this very useful also. Currently we have a slider for t-shirt size, and a table in the tooltip to tell folks 'XL: 13, L:8, etc'. If we can select a t-shirt size in the feature (as a custom field) and then have the slider update as a result, that would be superb.

    Adding my vote here. We base our prioritzation off the Pragmatic Marketing Framework which includes counting the number of customers that have asked for a particular feature.

    Is there any status on where this idea is on the roadmap?  We have a 6 fields we want to work into the scorecard, each of those fields have 2-5 different values -- and with only being able to display a number on the scorecard scale it is difficult to keep track of what to select -- plus to keep them in sync is difficult also as sometimes it is not known when a field value changes.

    This would be a great addition to help prioritize Ideas for us. I am looking to take two-five custom number fields, and multiply them together to generate a score. 

  • Matt Howard commented

    With Capacity Planning enabled, I would like to include the Feature "Estimate" as a metric in the Scorecard - as the level of effort to implement a feature weighs into the overall scoring/prioritization of that feature. Right now, I need to add a separate metric - and manage them in two separate places.....a pain.....

  • Allison Hunter commented

    Another vote for the ability to pull other scorecard values into a scorecard. I would like to use my initiative scoring to calculate my idea/feature scoring. If an idea/feature is part of an initiative that has high scoring, it's elevated (and is adjusted automatically as initiatives change in priority.)

  • Linda Mikels commented

    Setting scorecard slider based on selection from predefined list of choices in an idea field, then being able to create equations based on multiple idea field values (slider for each field) within a single scorecard, would be perfect

  • Diana Henderson commented

    One of the fields should be the "customer" tag that's part of the epics.  I would like to see the scorecard be able to count the # of clients tagged and factor in that count value into my customized scorecard equation.

    PLEASE IMPLEMENT THIS!! Why do scoring manually when you can AUTOMATE it?????????

  • Nathan Evans commented

    I love automated scoring for getting my priorities into the ballpark.  We still make judgment calls, but I find it helpful to have something that takes into account $ of clients requesting, number of votes, importance to customers, effort, etc.  A perfect algorithm won't exist, but getting the priorities somewhat into order would be very helpful.

  • Don Huovinen commented

    When using Ideas we have both votes and a score. We would like to have a rubric that allows us to easily calculate the score, e.g. Example of our scoring rubric is Score = # of unique customer votes + # of unique prospect votes + f($ of existing revenue) + f($ of sales opportunities) + f(# of teams involved)

    In addition to votes we would like communicate the Score externally in the Ideas portal. We may have 105 votes with 100 coming from a single customer that is trying to game the system and therefore votes can provide a very poor understanding of the actual score.

    Yeah, this is something I could really use right now. I'm wanting to roll up all the story points under Initiatives to get a grand total of points.

  • Oshrit Itzhak-Montvelisky commented

    we would love to have the score have a parameter reflecting the initiative value, of MF score for example.
