Allow ideas to be promoted to existing features

When promoting an idea to a feature, provide the option to promote to an existing feature so the status of the idea can be updated as the feature moves through development to release.

    Thank you for the note. Ideas can be promoted to new or existing features, both of which will drive the idea status updates. You can find more information on promoting ideas here and how feature status drives idea status here.

    The document you linked to says this:

    Promote ideas to features

    Once ready to promote, simply click on the green Promote button and choose the Promote to Feature option. You can choose to promote to any product for which you have rights and any release or parking lot within that product. When you promote an idea to a feature, a feature is created and a link is established between the idea and the feature. This ensures that a feature's origin is always accessible and that the users who submit and subscribe to ideas are automatically notified when an idea is implemented as a shipped feature.


    I do not see where it talks about promoting to an existing feature.
