Grid edit features, ideas, initiatives

When we go through planning cycles, we find ourselves updating a dozen fields for each idea or each potential initiative to help in prioritization. Our team still tend to do this in Google Sheets / Excel, because it's much faster to make the edits quickly on one screen, tabbing through each field. We can then import our spreadsheet, but this isn't good for round-tripping, and it means that we're working in multiple tools (Google Sheets + Aha!).

We would like to see a view in Aha! like the list view that allows us to quickly update a set of fields (columns), without having to open each idea / initiative.

    Grid edit function is desperately needed. Similar to the other use case mentioned there are multiple scenarios where view can be created to narrow down to a particular subset of data and make multiple fields across multiple records. Tee only method to make multiple edits for multiple fields do that now is to export a csv file, format and make edits, and then go through the import cycle, assign fields, etc. The efficiencies gained in having a single data set, and all of the features in Aha! are lost by the additional cycles in data management.

    Yes, I've used the bulk edit features in the past, but it's only helpful when i want to assign the same value to multiple features at once. The use case I describe here is different, because I'm going down a list of features (or ideas or initiatives) and assigning different values based on an assessment of that feature.

    Thanks for the note. We've updated the idea to "Likely to implement."

    Have you seen the bulk editing capabilities on the Features and Ideas list pages? While this does not completely solve your problem, it may be helpful in some respects.


Change values from a list report directly

I want to change a value in an epic or feature in a list report, without going through a number of hurdles. For example when reviewing a number of epics, I want to update the epic start date for one of them. If I want to change one field I would h...
