Add the Idea Categories as an option to show on the Features form

Because the Idea Category isn't pulling forward, we are using Initiatives to basically recreate Categories. It would be a whole lot better to use the Idea Categories and use Initiatives for what they are intended for.

    Admin Response

    Thank you for the request. Many of our customers use is to leverage the Tags field to classify ideas and features. When promoting ideas to features, the tags field remains intact so that you can pass this information along. This would allow you to continue to use the Initiatives field as a strategic item.

    At this time, we do not have plans for updates in this area. However, we hope that this workaround can help.

    As an administrator use categories in ideas to let the requestor do the work on tagging the related sub product/component, I want to achieve that during promoting the idea to a feature, to automatically take over the value (sub product) in a (custom) field to display it on feature board in the feature cards and details page, in order to prevent manual efforts and mistakes, keeping/displaying redundant information and saving time.

    I dont understand why all fields arent available in all layouts.  Dont know why the category field cant be pulled into the feature when promoted.
