How do i create a program Initiative that spans multiple plans?

I created a Program that contains several plans.  I would like to create an Initiative at the Program level that is the Parent of Epics at the Plan level.  Is there a way to do that?

Hey @Russell Bailey!

You can define an initiative that spans several plans by ensuring that the initiative is defined by the issue sources of each plan. 

By definition, however, each plan is independent of the others, so the initiative would show up on the schedule view for each of the plans it is defined in.

Furthermore, as each plan is independent and defined/calculated by the issues in each plan, the estimate and progress "roll-up" of the initiative across each plan will be defined only by the issues in that plan.

Thanks Jack.  I'll give it a try.

Absolutely @Russell Bailey! Let me know if you have any other questions :)
