Integration with smartsheet

Product implementation and execution schedule can be build up with much more detail in smartsheet. A combination of aha! and smartsheet can be a much more powerful tool for our customer.

    Through the use of features, release, notes and custom fields, Aha! presents a comprehensive solution for managing product implementation and execution schedules within Aha!  Along with the ability to manage this information in the same place as roadmap planning.

    At this time based on current priorities and general feedback from the community, we are unlikely to make changes in this area in the near term. We hope you can understand.

    What's lacking in Aha is a way to edit the roadmap data using a spreadsheet like view.

    I view this a little differently.  We see aha as our roadmap and plan of record tool, while project management is separate but should be related.  For companies who already have a large investment in other project management tools, why not offer an integration ?

    I agree with Laura - especially for linking different teams which have their silos and investment in tool sets and learning.

    Now that Aha supports syncing of initiatives to Jira, it's theoretically possible to use the Smartsheet-Jira connector to bring Aha items in to Smartsheet and keep them in sync. We have the pieces but haven't tried this yet and I'm curious how it handles the child initiatives (which we use as SAFe Program Epics since we got started before the Master Features functionality was added to Aha).

    Aha is great for roadmapping, but it's not a project management tool (and I would argue should not be).  Implementation is very complex and Aha is not sufficient for tracking all related tasks, dependencies and due dates across all funcitons in the company.  Because Aha and Smartsheet are not easily integrated today I spend many hours every week copying release names, dates and details into smartsheet.. technically both have API's so syncing CAN be done, but i'd rather not have to build an integration.  We've already had to build a custom application that runs on top of Aha in order to help our product managers effectively use it, if we have to do much more, may consider abandoning.

    Integrating with smartsheet would allow us to incorporate our product development plans with other departments who don't use (and wont use) AHA for planning.
