Allow Features to be mapped to multiple initiatives Merged

We have features that map to multiple initiatives with equal relevance and importance. We then roadmaps for our initiatives to see all of relevant activities and to understand dependencies and relationships. 

Since we are limited to be able to only map one initiative to each feature, we are not able to see a full picture of impact to all of our initiatives. Please allow the capability to map features to more than one initiative, similar to how we can map more than one goal to a feature.

Our use case in a bit more detail w/o providing proprietary information:

1) We have a team delivering a feature, which is important to various other teams and initiatives.

2) One initiative is around driving the platform transformation for this particular team and since this feature is part of their platform, it must be mapped.

3) We have a second initiative to create a new business capability, which specifically requires this one capability from this team. The second initiative cannot be completed w/o this capability. But because the capability is already mapped to one initiative, we cannot map it to this second initiative. 

And to be clear, there is not a hierarchy relationship or dependency that the first initiative must be delivered to complete the second initiative, so we can't create a relationship there - that would give a false picture. They are two separate activities and this capability is needed as part of both. 

Because of this limitation in Aha, we are unable to provide a complete picture or roadmap for our initiatives.
