Add ability to copy Idea Categories between products

When setting up products, or making changes to categories, it is often very similar. Having the ability to import categories, or copy them from an existing Product would make this much more efficient.

    We have 15 products across 5 proct lines. Idee categories are always the same. much waste of time to define the categories product based.

    Great idea. I would like consistent categorization for all product ideas to simplify reporting across all product opportunities.

    I agree.  As I trial Aha and trying to see if it fits my use case, I have having some issues with the ability to do activity Cross-product.  I think I could use Ideas that would span multiple products, but that's a more complex solution and may be against the philosophy of Aha.  But having the categories available across products would definitely be a benefit.  For example, come ideas I might create are "launch outreach to potential partners of my websites."  This may cover marketing (very intrigued by the new functionality here!), and some dev work in that I might need to create some new Email templates that have to get hooked into my Email service, as well as Design, who designs the templates.  I am having trouble right now figuring out how all this would neatly fit in one product only.

    Hope that's useful!
