Add a new Reporting Field "Roll up to initiative rank"

Customer use case: The report I’m trying to build would show the relationship from Portfolio Initiative to Product Initiative and underlying product features with the report sorted based on the Product Line/Portfolio Level Initiative Rank. However, there is no way of currently doing this. Their are two options that come to mind, both of which require a product enhancement to enable:

1. Add sorting to the Hierarchy Report (existing idea request link https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/APP-I-3137)

2. Add a new reporting field for "Roll up to initiative rank" which would provide additional sorting options for the List and Pivot reports.

    We have the same need.  We rank product features based on associated initiative rank.  Note:  We use a custom field to indicate overall company rank since we need to rank initiatives across a variety of product lines.

    Another way you could do this is to allow feature rank and/or feature score to inherit the initiative rank or initiative custom field (like we use).  With the new ability to automatically sort features based on score, it would be great to use the company rank as an input to that score.... then we could eliminate the manual sorting.
