Ability to roll up Initiatives to multiple parent initiatives

We need to be able to roll up initiatives to multiple products. Right now, when you link to a product or product line, you are only allowed one link. Based on how we need to roll up and generate reports, there was no workaround that would do the trick.

    As noted, current capabilities allow for initiatives to roll up to a single initiative up the product hierarchy. The reason for this is to show the clear path and strategy links across products and product lines.

    At this time, due to current priorities, we are unlikely to make updates in this specific area. We hope you can understand.

    Being able to roll initiatives up to multiple parent initiatives would definitely help my organization manage situations where the work happening at a product-level is actually supporting multiple initiatives at the company-level.

    Using a custom field for this is causing a lot of confusion and effort to ensure users in out org are properly trained. Universal dependencies would be fine if there was an option to see a timeline/roadmap view; but that doesn't exist. 

    At this point, the "best" option that our users default to is misuse of goals. It's effective, but not ideal.
