Ability to remove default release template

My PMs often forget to switch to their own template or insert no template and then have to delete each phase. It'd be easier if there was no template or the template they choose would be default.

    Thank you for the idea!

    You now have full control over the default template — edit or delete the default template Aha! provides or set your own custom default that will be preselected for all users in your workspace.

    When we create release phase template, we should be able to choose which one is the default one. That way users will have less templates to choose from, reducing risk of using the wrong (current default) template

    Or at very least give the ability to change the release phase template once the release has been created ... this way the if the release was created using a old release phase template a new on can be applied or removed.

    I think the Admins comment above is a little short sited, and the assumption here is that Aha Administrators don't need global admin controls. I currently have over 100 product using Aha, and that default template is just not useful for how our products are structured. Therefore I want to switch this off globally, and then give our product managers the flexibility to choose another. Releases planning is an incredibly useful tool, especially in large organisations, so having a workaround that relies on users not making a mistake seems like a UX flaw.

    this is the most frustrating part of Aha and I love this product - please remove the default phases or at least make these current defaults opt in

    I agree with Jaclyn -- every time we accidentally forget to click "no template" it causes about 2 minutes of deleting phases per release to undo the mistake.

    I meant so that the default is already "no template" so that PMs have one less click (and potentially many less) to worry about.


Admin: Remove Default Release Template

Aha! comes pre-populated with a Default Release Template that we cannot alter or remove. Admins should be able to do both as it doesn't align to current processes & confuses our teams.
