Display Master features in Starter roadmap

It would make the Starter roadmap much clear to read  when you could show the Master features in Releases instead of individual features. So please add possibility to display also the Master releases

    You can now add and visualize master features on the starter roadmap! Check out the blog post for more details.

    I'm also really keen for this to happen.  

    I couldn't find an equivalent idea when I searched, so I made a new one... (https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/APP-I-4920).

    Hopefully they'll be merged

    It is so aggravating that this was left out. I want to use master features so badly, but I can't visually communicate out about them in my existing roadmaps. The reporting is keeping me away from what could be a great feature.

    See below chat.....speaks for itself I think. Thx for giving this more votes.

    Hi Nicolas, Thanks for your note. Unfortunately Master Features are not available on the Starter Roadmap. To make a suggestion you can request this on our idea portal where our product team can review your suggestion directly: https://big.ideas.aha.io/ Many thanks.

    How do I show a master release in the start up roadmap?

    With kind regards,

    Any updates on this? This will really really help the roadmap building exercise in Aha.

    We spent a day or two entering in master features into Aha because the support articles and documentation recommended that master features should be used like Epics. Epics are the right level of detail for a roadmap and the starter roadmap is the report that would let us build the kind of roadmap representation we are looking for. To workaround this limitation, we will need to re-enter 2-3 years of epics into Aha, significantly reducing the ROI of this tool. Would have been good if the documentation had either warned in appropriate places or not recommended using master features as epics altogether.

    We are using master features as Epics. It was a bummer when we found out that we can't show these epics in the roadmap. Master Features are pretty useless for us if we can't build a graphical representation in the roadmap. I hope this is a feature that gets implemented soon.

    Would be great to have this feature! For us a potential blocker for fully moving to Aha. Based on how we construct our roadmaps.

    Please put it in.  Makes no sense not to have this capability.

    Please add this functionality! We just input all of our epics as master features and it was very disappointing when they did not show up on the roadmaps.

    Please please implement this! We imported all of our epics as master features and now we can't roadmap them and it's very frustrating :(

    Hoping this feature is still being considered.  We have way too many features to be useful to show on the starter roadmap.

    We have just begun to use Master Features to represent epics.  This is a huge gap because we have now lost all of the roadmaps that were previously being used to present to Senior Leadership.

    Agreed - I'm having to fend off questions about using other roadmapping tools such as Roadmunk. This is a must have

    It would be great that, once you add a Master Feature to the Starter Roadmap, users have the ability to expand the Master Feature to see the child Features (much in the same way that you can expand a Release to see what is under that Release). This gives the user the ability to "drill down" from the Release, to Master Features, to Features, as needed. Being able to expand a Feature to see its child Requirements would be an added bonus.

    Please add this feature. Master features seem to be an afterthought...

    I agree that having the master feature view would make starter roadmap much more powerful.

    Please add this, same use case as multiple people have outlined below.

    I agree this would be very nice to have.  The starter roadmap has a very appealing viz layout. For initial / early roadmap sessions, I only have Master Features and would like to communicate using this layout.

    Big blocker. Set up our Jira integration to use Master Features as Epics as recommended and now the roadmapping functions of this software are basically useless. I understand that Master Features can span multiple releases and that may be what's making this difficult, but we need a solution ASAP.

    Very eager to see this implemented! It's impacting our team as well

    This is one of the biggest barriers i have to using Aha consistently. I find myself just creating roadmaps in powerpoint or google slides,   which defeats the purpose of having this system.

    This would be a very useful addition. The Starter Roadmap is by far the easiest way to create roadmaps, as you can visualise what you're creating as you do it. 


    Most importantly, this makes the Starter Roadmap useless for those who have decided to use Master Features. 


    Secondly,  I'm having to create master features "blind". Each time I have to navigate away from my roadmap. My alternative was to use Gantt > Releases, but this also has its issues with creating master features (https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/A-I-7940)
