Linking idea to existing feature should update status automatically Merged

"Linking an idea to an existing feature does not automate a status change so you must manually change the status if you wish to"

Is there a reason why this status is not updated automatically?

Votes do not add up correctly in a B2B context where requests are not submitted by the end users. For that reason we are working with multiple ideas that all link to the same feature. However, the fact that statuses do not update automatically makes the management very cumbersome.

    Should happen when promoted to initiative also. We have a defined initiative workflow which we use to judge the value of pieces of work, to which we have added custom status'. Linking multiple ideas to one product line or product level initiative is very common in our world, so the ability to automatically update the status of all those ideas to show where they are in the process needs to happen. It is a cumbersome manual task at the moment.

    I agree with the original statement. I am finding it hard to understand the benefit to linking to an existing feature if it is only a link and doesn't update status.
