Make notebooks more interactive for Aha application users

There is an existing idea that is not likely to be implemented where people without Aha accounts would be able to click on links in notebooks and get more information (  What about being able to click on those links ad get to them for someone who does have an Aha account? 

In our process, we take snapshots of information (e.g. a scope of work) and send that via a notebook to our Engineering group for review.  It basically amounts to fixed working list of items that people (who have Aha accounts) will use to go look up more information.  Right now they manually go look up that information by searching the feature ID.  It would be much more convenient if they could just click on the feature ID and go right to the information.

I do realize that's what views in Aha are for.  However, views are just that - views.  They are dynamic, which is great most of the time.  In this case I want to ensure that the content of the view doesn't change.  i.e. a snapshot in time


User story: as a stakeholder WITH an Aha account, I want to be able to click on items in the notebook published as a webpage or a PDF and have it bring me to the relevant location within the Aha application.

    I agree - Specifically, I use the "Feature Roadmap" and publish it in a notebook. It would be nice for internal users with Aha access to be able to click on each feature to get the details beneath it.

    I'd also love this for stakeholders who don't have an Aha acount

    In the notebooks about 2 weeks ago the Notebooks had links depending on the data field shown. We use the reports a lot in meetings and clicking on the link we were able to do changes, To-Do or add comments immediately that had been discussed in the meeting. Our management now copy the Ref # into a browser to do such. That is not user friendly at all. I can not understand that it had been removed. This jeopardize the usage of our upper management team and risk the value of the Aha! tool for them. In my view this being removed is a big big step backward towards Excel Spreadsheets. Please enable again as soon as possible.

    we would switch to an enterprise account, so whole company could have reviewer access and then click on releases in notebooks to see details on descriptions, timeline, etc...  Especially valuable from pivot reports
