On our way to Initiative Roadmap Nirvana - Priority 2 of 3 - Ability to drop a pin and add text Merged

First, we LOVE the new Strategy / Roadmap option.

Our company maps features to epics, and requirements to user stories, so initiatives are exactly the level of detail we want to use to communicate with our executives, and also to communicate to the company as a whole.  And the gantt chart format is also exactly what we're looking for.

Our plan is to use the initiative road map to communicate with executives, and get buy-in on priorities - and shift priorities as needed.

To this end, we are asking for three new capabilities (in order of our priorities):

1.  New Ordering Options (https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/APP-I-1764)
2.  The ability to drop a pin, and add text to the roadmap
3.  The ability to visually see the size (in story points or time) of each initiative on the roadmap

I'm creating 3 ideas; this is the first of three.

Ability to drop a pin and add text

WHY IS IT USEFUL

 

As we are communicating roadmap initiatives out to the company, it's often helpful to provide other information (that may not be in Aha) to give context.    Examples include:

  • 10,000 customers migrated
  • Product XYZ launch
  • Feature ABC launch

WHO WOULD BENEFIT

Product Managers, Executives, Sales

HOW WOULD IT WORK

Provide the ability to drop a pin on the roadmap, and add text to be able to give context to the roadmap initiatives.

We could add the ability to add Aha-objects (features, releases, etc.) to the initiative roadmap to give it more context, but being able to drop a pin and add our own text is much more flexible.  We may want to 'nuance' the text displayed (since it's going out to a wide audience), and we may want to add information that isn't present in Aha.

    Another thought......

    We might want to drop a pin in the timeline, or below an initiative.
