Setting a new Default workflow for new products

We would like our custom workflow to be the default workflow that is automatically assigned when a new product is created.

Our various users add about 5 products a month, and we need a consistent way to assign the correct feature status's to all projects.

    Admin Response

    Currently, the ability to set release, feature and idea workflows is provided to product owners to allow for greater flexibility within accounts. We have designed it in this way to allow product owners to have this customization option (as opposed to offering it at the account level).

    Based on this design, the effort required for selecting workflows (as a one-time action per product) and current priorities, we are unlikely to make updates in this area. We hope you can understand.

    Agreed.  It would be ideal if you could control the default Release Workflow, Feature Workflow, Score Card, etc all at the Product Line or Account Level.  It promotes better consistency of the implementation of our process across all products in our product line.

    The admin response makes sense, but I think what most folks are asking for is the ability to set or edit the DEFAULT Workflows.  As an admin, if I could edit or otherwise indicate to the PM that "....unless you have a special unicorn Release, the please use the default one that I have set up for you"

    As of today, the Default Release is set by Aha, and is not editable by anyone, including the Admin.
