I shouldn't have to specify a unique set of categories for each product in the Idea portal. There should be a set of categories that can be applied to any Idea for any product. Put differently, each product would inherit the categories of its parents, and could be modified in the same way as the Terminology is inherited or customized throughout other areas of the application.
One additional comment, even if the categories were put in at the product line level and were inherited down to the workspaces within that line, that would be a time saver too.
It would also be nice to be able to report on categories across products to help define yearly initiatives for ideas.
I totally agree. This should be inheritable as I have many products sharing the same categories concept
Huge pain in the butt for folks that have several divisions and multiple products. To gain uniformity....and to launch ideas through the proper channel....these categories are vital and need to be consistent. I have spent about 4 hours today going through each product to unify this..........kill me with paper cuts.
