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.

    This would be extremely useful! We're creating new a new shipped status for each release, for example, 'Shipped - 3.63 Pilot', and then when it goes to general we change the shipped status name to 'Shipped - 3.63 General Release'. We're using the bulk edit option to mass update ideas that have shipped in a release to the new more descriptive shipped status.

    Many of our Aha users (PM/CSM/SE/Customers) have asked for this feature.

    Will it be available soon? The workaround requires manual intervention.

    This would be doubly handy if we could use it to let internal teams speak the same language as our dev teams by indicating which request in our internal development systems will respond to the idea that they have submitted.

    Plus one. The workaround for using a custom field is not really scalable, requiring us to remember another manual step each time we move a feature between releases. This Idea would really improve our ability to keep stakeholders informed.

    Submitter usually want to know when a idea or ER will be released so that they can communicate to customers. 'Release information ' at idea level is important and avoids manual work for PM

    Agree, would also like to see the Release of promoted Features propagated back to the Ideas the Feature is associated with/derived from, to manage delivery and timeline expectations of the requester.

    We need this for stakeholder management. This is very important

    This is a very import thing for our use.  The custom fields is a lot of extra work.

    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!

    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 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?

    When can we expect that this gets implemented?


Add release external date to ideas on portal

When idea is planned and moved into the release, creator needs to be informed when is external release date planned.

Add the ability to automatically add release version from linked feature to idea.

When an idea is promoted to a feature add the ability to link the version the feature is assigned to the idea automatically. It would be very helpful for feedback to the end users rather than an individual manually having to provide than informati...
