Inherit Initiative workflows

What:
Make an initiative workflow set at a product line level inherited by its children products/product lines.

 

Why:
It's cumbersome and error-prone to require setting every product in a product line to use the same initiative workflow. It would be easier to set the workflow at the product line level, and have all child products/product lines inherit that as the default.

    I strongly agree with the "Why" that Max highlighted above. It is extremely tedious to apply a custom initiative workflow to portfolios with 20 or more products. Not to mention, adding the initiative flow each time a new initiative is added.

    Correction *New Product is added (not initiative)

    I strongly agree as well.  I worry as new products get added by product owners this step could be mixed and then products in the same product line could end up with different statuses.   Thanks!
