Link a Feature to multiple products

We regularly release features across Desktop, Web and Mobile which we have as separate products in aha. We would prefer to be able to have a feature which is linked across all products, as all are updated at the same time. We currently add features per product but there is no central link back to a single feature.

    Currently, features can only be linked to a single product.

    This is done in an effort to simplify the number of products used within Aha! Depending on your release cycles, it may be more beneficial to set up your product hierarchy to have 1 product and use tags to identify the environment.

    Please see more details here: http://support.aha.io/hc/en-us/articles/200785579-How-to-define-your-product-in-Aha-

    At this time, we do not have plans to link features across multiple products. We hope you can understand.

    I think this is a big miss.  Similar features are often released across multiple products (web, mobile, etc), with different release cycles, so it would seem that this use case should be pretty common.  The suggested alternative does not seem to be a viable solution.

    Agree with Marissa completely.

    Late to this idea, but wanted to note that it's also becoming more common for individual features to be "packageable" into various product offerings. It would make sense to be able to track/release a single feature in Aha and have the roadmaps of all products leveraging feature reflect when that feature has shipped.

    Totally agree with Marissa too! Big miss not supporting a feature for multiple products.

    I think this is big miss here to. This starts to make features limited to something similar to a task rather than a feature.

    It looks like you can now use master features in one product and link features to them from other products.

    Does linking of feature with different product is still NOT supportable in Aha!?

    Please reply!

    Hi there. Features only belong to a single product in Aha! There are a couple options for handling situations where a feature may be related to more than one product:

    1. Use a master feature with individual features in each product
    2. Add a Product custom field to your features layout to capture secondary product relationships. When adding the custom field, choose the Product type field in the Aha! record relationships section. This field will then be pre-populated with the products from your product hierarchy.

    The current model of a feature belonging to a single product is not something that we are likely to change. I hope you can understand and find the options above helpful. Thanks!

    Agree that this would be excellent feature.  We build enterprise level software with many Modules that are separate product lines. There are dependencies for some customers across the product lines.
