Add all features to notebook convenience method on Features->Roadmap view

On the Features->Roadmap view, when viewing a release Roadmap that includes Feature status, items are either aggregated under their feature status, or lumped into a "Not Shown In Notebook" bucket.

The mechanism by which the default state of a feature (in terms of its inclusion in the notebook) is unclear, though we understand we can changed the visibility of any given feature by toggling the checkbox next to it.

Our idea is for a convenience method to "Show All Features In Notebook".  We have releases with 50+ features, and our view frequently lumps ~30 of these features as "Not Shown In Notebook" though we've never explicitly removed them.  This would prevent us from having to click on 30 individual items to get the view we are trying to present.

    I concur. This the default behavior should be configurable so that all new features CAN be auto-added to the Reports -> Roadmaps -> Features report. I always have to go in and manually check them, and if I forget, it’s a pain especially since this is the one manual step in an otherwise completely automated notebook reporting process. All our notebooks are live).

    Voted; the default should be configurable to show or not show features in the notebook.

    This is a must for Notebooks that are LIVE. It defeats the purpose of a LIVE notebook to need to do this manually. This idea has been here since 2015, I hope you can implement it soon.

    Agree with all of the above comments. I understand the rationale behind having the option to not show them, but it creates a manual step (that we have found a lot of users forget to do..) for something that is supposed to be live. The ability to change the default would be extremely beneficial. Thanks.

    Like all the others, and the similar challenges on releases not showing by default, this is a must have for us. Having to remember to add a feature into the right release in the Features board and then again in the report(s) is clunky and undermines the value of Aha in always having beautiful, accurate roadmaps. At least a configuration option should be available to default features to automatically show in all roadmaps...
