Allow regular fields such as Release Name and Release Date to show on Ideas portal as feedback to submitter

Adding Custom Fields to the Ideas Portal is really neat.  A user submits an idea through the Portal and Product Management promotes the idea to a Feature and schedules it in a release.  At this point all the user can tell from the Ideas Portal is that the idea is Scheduled - the big question is when and what is the release name.  With that information in hand the user can then communicate the schedule to his/her customer.  If/when the idea, turned Feature, is rescheduled, or its status changes in any other way that needs to be visible on the Ideas Portal too.

    When can we expect that this gets implemented?

    I am interested in this idea. In the meantime is there a suggested work around to allow the idea owner and subscribers to know which release it is Scheduled or Planned for?

    Hi there. This is not currently planned on our roadmap, however we will continue to monitor customer feedback on this idea. In the meantime, we would recommend using a custom field to share details on release plans through the portal. For example, we use a "Release time frame" custom field that we will update with a general note on timing once an idea is planned.

    I would love to see this enhancement. Currently we are manually selecting an estimated date which is very hard to keep up with. If an idea is linked to an object with an external release date it would ideally show that date scoped to the time frame specified in the release (quarter, month, day, etc)

    Thank you!
