When we are looking at an initiative that has a start date and an end start when is comes to an offer.
For instance if I have an offer that has a Start date to market and then End Date to close out the offer I have to currently have two releases for this initiative which will be attached to two releases.
The release Go Live Offer would have timeline that allows it to be pushed out but the release should not show the duration of the offer because the release may have more initiatives included to the release and that will affect the way they are represented on a report, etc.
If the initiative has the ability to add a timeline function in it, this can allow for the initiative to report correctly as well as allow our backlog to be groomed correctly and attached to sprints and releases based on the ceremonies that all parties agree on.
