Convert features and activities to other record types

Just because you first created a record in Aha! as a feature does not mean it must stay that way forever. You can easily convert features to one of three other record types: initiative, requirement, or epic.

There are, of course, a few exceptions:

  • Development tool integrations: You cannot convert any feature that you have already synced with a third-party development tool such as Jira or Rally. If you attempt to convert a synced feature, you will receive an error message.

  • Features with requirements: You cannot convert any feature with existing requirements. If you attempt to convert a feature with requirements, you will receive an error message. Before you convert, you must either promote each requirement to a feature or move them to another feature.

  • Lost links and fields: Converting a feature will result in it losing parent/child links, related record links, and custom fields that the new record type does not support.

Note: This article refers to releases and features. Depending on your workspace type, you may see "schedules" and “activities" in your workspace.

Click any of the following links to skip ahead:

Convert a feature to a requirement

Open a feature, then click the More options button and select Convert to requirement. Next, select the feature that your newly converted requirement should be added to.

As mentioned earlier, requirements do not support all of the capabilities of features, so converting may lose some information including:

  • Custom field values (requirements do support custom fields, but the values will not carry over from the feature when you convert)

  • Aha! score

  • Assigned user

  • Watchers

  • The feature type

  • Goals and tags

  • Links to other features or initiatives

Once you click the Convert to requirement button, the feature will immediately be converted and Aha! will redirect you to the details of the requirement in the parent feature.

The converted feature will no longer appear on the features board. You can view the individual requirements in the feature card or you can view all requirements by creating a features list.

Convert a feature to an epic

In order to convert a feature to an epic, you must first have epics enabled in your settings.

Open a feature, then click the More options button and select Convert to epic. Your feature will immediately be converted to an epic under the same release and Aha! will redirect you to the details in the new epic.

You can view all of your epics across all releases by toggling between Features and Epics buttons on the features board. Or, you can view epics within specific releases on the features detail view, where you can choose specific releases from the dropdown.

Convert a feature to an initiative

Open a feature, then click the More options button and select Convert to initiative. Your feature will immediately be converted and Aha! will redirect you to the details in the new initiative.

You can then view all of your initiatives by navigating to Strategy → Initiatives.
