When I'm relating releases back to product strategy, I would like to create a relationship to Product Line initiatives, so I don't have to re-create the same initiatives for all products in a product family.
Currently, product releases can be linked to product-level initiatives. This allows you to link your strategy at the product level to you specific releases.
We also provide the ability to roll up product level initiatives to product line initiatives to allow you to see the full realm of strategy across the portfolio.
This is designed in this manner to allow each level of your product and company to have its own strategy, and allow them to roll up the hierarchy.
At this time, based on current priorities and rationale noted above, we are unlikely to make changes in this area. We hope you can understand.
