I'd like to use JIRA portfolio to directly communicate the roadmap to various stakeholders. For that a few elements are missing, and I'd be happy to have them:
Changes to reporting views
Defining / using preset reports
I strongly agree with your deep link suggestion:
(Basic must have) Ability to generate a specific URL per view that can be saved as preset view and/or shared via email.
JIRA Portfolio is an amazing little tool, but there is no way to report the results either upward to stakeholders or downward to team members. The whole point of this thing is to help me to bridge the gap between the VPs above me and my scrum and kanban teams, right? So then how am I supposed to communicate the plans from JIRA Portfolio to those VPs above me? And how am I supposed to communicate the schedules that it generates to the teams who are supposed to do the work?
I love this tool, I'm just baffled by the enormous parts that are missing. What's the point of a tool that generates output that you can't share with people? Are my VPs and also the individual workers supposed to go into Portfolio and interact with the scheduling UI? That's never going to work.
It may not be the simplest thing to do, but you could consider creating a custom PDF template for the Better PDF Exporter.
As the app integrates with Portfolio, nothing stops you from creating the exact report that you need then share the resulted PDF document with your stakeholders.
Here is a short video that demonstrates how the default template exports Portfolio data: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEqRikB5jTQ&feature=youtu.be&autoplay=1
(Discl.: it's a paid app and I'm a developer working on it.)
