Allow the format of the Portfolio Roadmaps be used for other strategic roadmaps

There is a desire to create strategic roadmaps within Aha, but the views are very "Gant Chart" style/format. The Portfolio roadmap view is visually appealing, but it seems to only allow me to use that view with releases on a roadmap. It seems like the formats should be usable for custom reports as well and not restricted.

    Thank you for the idea. Can you elaborate a bit on what aspects of the portfolio roadmap you would like to see available in custom roadmaps? The key difference is the shading of the bars based on completion. If this is what you are looking for, I will merge this idea into https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/APP-I-3518. Thanks!

    I'm not talking just about the color of the of the bars based on completion. I'm talking about the overall aesthetics of the report. The Portfolio roadmap has gray swim lanes and different font at the top to signify the quarters. Yes, the bars are then colored. But overall the portfolio roadmap physically looks different and the strategic roadmaps look very much like a glorified gant chart.

    It might sound silly, but to our teams, the visual appearance of something creates perceptions. Seeing something that looks like a gant chart feels like we are doing very traditional waterfall project management. We are not. We are doing some strategic planning with implementation through agile. If we could put the same strategic data into a view that doesn't look like a gant chart, that helps remove a perception.
