Automatic update of Priority Score within a Product/Product Line

A key element of product management is being able to easily manage and maintain the priority level of all projects within that product line.

My suggestions is to allow for automatic updates to the priority level so that any changes made to one project will update all others.

For example, lets say I have 30 Master Features under a single Product/Product line ranked 1-30. If I take the #10 Master Feature and change it to #3, I would like all of the other Master Features within that Product to have their priority scores automatically updated based on the change I made.

Similarly, this would also need to work if I add another Master Feature and slot it at number 5. Aha would need to automatically update the score for every Master Feature that is now going to be on number lower in the priority order (i.e. 30 to 31, 29 to 30, etc.).

    Thank you for the idea. Currently the feature rank will update when features are adjusted on the Features board. This does not impact the feature score as the is generally used as an input for rank. One way to accomplish this would be to leave rank out of the feature score calculation and use a pivot table to calculate the sum of the rank and the score. This calculation would update automatically as the rank changes. See the screenshot for an example of how to set this up.

    Given the explanation and reporting option above, we are unlikely to implement this idea at this time. We hope you understand.
