Use Planning Poker numbers for idea scoring

It's not really possible to say whether an Idea is effort 54 or 55. It would be great if you could allow user to use Planning Poker numbers for scoring. Makes it easier to score Ideas:

    Hi everyone. Scorecard metrics can now utilize different sequence types including Fibonacci sequence or your own custom defined sequence.

    Great idea.

    Similarly, we're already putting in the effort for the feature in as story points (in our case, in Jira after each Planning Poker meeting, which is sync'd to Aha!). 

    It would be nice if the "Effort" slider could automatically update to whatever was entered into the story points box. It feels silly to have the planning meeting, enter the number in Jira, and then enter the number again in the "Effort to develop" area of Aha!

    Hi Jason,

    Your request is a bit different, we already integrate with JIRA for estimates. If you have capacity planning enabled in Aha! estimates put into JIRA will be reflected into the estimate field in Aha!

    The gap is that there is no way to automatically feed the estimate value into an estimate value on the scorecard. I opened a new idea for this:

    Hi Danny,

    Yes, we integrate with Jira already for the estimates field, and it's imported automatically. What I meant is that it would nice to link up the "Effort" slider automatically, as you mentioned in the new feature.

    But back to this feature: it would be useful to limit the sliders to Planning Poker or Fibonacci sequence values for all/some sliders. We use 1/2/3/5/8/13 here, so limiting to only these for the scorecard would be really useful.
