Filter features displayed on the Gantt chart

Depending on the audience, we'd like to be able to filter to display different subsets of the features in a release on the release roadmap view.  Currently, the filters only apply to entire releases and not the features contained within a release.  For example, when meeting with the leadership team, we may only want to display features identified as critical to success, rather than the complete list. While it is possible to build a timeline report, the result is not as clean or interactive as using the Gantt chart in the Release Roadmap.

    As noted, the release roadmap filters currently apply to releases on the page (as opposed to other records such as features).

    Based on the goal of showing releases and identifying key features, we would suggest using the Features roadmap page or Timeline report. Both areas allow you to fully customize the feature view and you can share this through a Notebook.

    Because of the availability through other areas along with current priorities and community feedback, we are unlikely to make updates in this area. We hope you can understand.

    Hi Frank, I'm sorry to hear about your reports. The limit has since been increased to 5,000 records on the Gantt chart. Can you try viewing your Gantt chart again and confirm that you are seeing the records you expect to see?

    This may have been a nice to have in the past but it's mandatory now.

    On June 3rd you restricted the Gannt charts to 250 elements for performance reasons. RELEASE NOTE

    As a result you broke all my reports.

    What is worse, you did not limit it to parent records first, but the first parent and the children. So I don't see all the releases in the selection if there are more then 250 features in the first releases.

    Features are not available in the filter list. If they were, this would be a simple fix. A false condition for most features would still yield a list of all releases that qualify in the search.

    I get why you limited Gantt chart search, but the implementation was not pretty and the effects could have been imagined.

    This request for Feature level filters would support the new limit and not break all the reports currently in place.

    I am going to vote for this because I would to filter by feature attribute, like type or status. But I am not using this for selecting this feature over that. That can be done on the roadmap view. But as you look at Larger Gantts including more releases and feature, you can hit the 250 limits pretty fast. Having a filter to trim type or status would be useful as I assess the progress of the portfolio.

    This really is a must have. It is very frustrating to not be able to filter features to a single team within a release view, or a specific feature set. I do not understand the ADMINs response to this request, you are pressing your views against people that are actively using your tool and would find it very valuable to be able to filter out features from a gantt view, and do not find the roadmap view as effective.

    In order to streamline our teams' ability to enter and track work into Aha! we have re-aligned fields between the epic and feature/activity record types as opposed to having duplicate fields in multiple record types (in order to support team-level reports, etc.). We made this decision based on the ability to filter by fields in other record types in all other views. We have since learned that this is not possible in the Gantt view, which limits how our teams are able to interact with the tool. Gantt is important because the updates are live unlike in Roadmap or other reports.

    We recommend adding the same filtering functionality to the Gantt view that exists in every other view for consistency and functionality. See attached screenshots for how different the filter options are between the Gantt and other views.

    The admin response does not make any sense.

    If I want to see a clear view of in-flight work, without looking at completed features, I should be able to do that. No matter the view ot report style, you should be able to filter based on any level of detail.

    I create a new idea for it but my company also need a filter by feature on the gantt chart.

    I see the same need as Oleksandr below. When adding features to a release they will be worked off one after another and it should be possible to limit down the view to those which remain relevant.

    The response here is 3 years old.  Can you reasses.  We have several users requesting a filtered gantt chart view of features to be able to review and assess the sequencing.  This would be a good decision support screen and whilst it was rejected in 2016 i do consider it a value add.

    We would like to filter out all features that are shipped. This is very useful when you have a large project with many tasks in one project.

Features filter available in Release plan

Currently when adding filters to the release gantt chart the "Feature" object is not available for selection. This is essential when we want to zoom into a group of features.

Ability to filter by feature or activity details on the Gantt page

There are times where it would be beneficial to show my Gantt view, but not include features/activities that have already been completed. It would be great to be able to add a Features/Activities filter on the Gantt page to programmatically filter...

Release Roadmap: Filter features by tag

When viewing the Release Roadmap, we would like to be able to filter the features by a specific Feature Tag, so that we can see related features in the roadmap across multiple releases and filter out the un-related features.
