Just like the templates for Features and Requirements, an Initiative template would be useful. The open-ended format of the Initiative is good, as well as the ability to associate goals, etc.., to them.
We end up doing a lot of repetition when we create Initiatives, in order to get the formatting and readability correct. If we could just make a template that everyone used, it would improve the workflow.
From a customer perspective, this doesn't seem like a drastic leap (since Feature and Requirement templates exist). As we're scaling up our business, we're finding we're adding more and more new people, and also doubling/trippling our workload. We're also in rapid development, so those Initiatives get churned through quickly. The templates would be a time-saver in multiple ways.
|Release time frame|
Feature and requirement templates were launched, not only because of the noted use cases, but also because of the amount of volume (related to the number of features and requirements which are created in the application).
While we can see the benefit of Initiative templates, because of the relative level of volume of Initiatives created, we are unlikely to create this new feature at this time. However, as volume increases, we may consider revisiting it and therefore, will keep this idea open.
