Is there a way to map children to any higher parent?

I have added two hierarchy levels above Epic - Objective and Initiative.

I would still like the ability to set either Objective or Initiative as the parent for a given epic. However, currently it looks like the parent MUST be the hierarchy level directly above - it can't skip a level.

I found a thread explaining this is not currently possible:

And that this is the fix, but for some reason I cannot vote for it:

Hi @Taleena Herkenhoff

I've checked the suggestion and I can vote for it - are you sure you're logged in for the suggestions lists?

The previous answer is still the same at this stage - grandfather links are not possible using the standard hierarchy.

You'd need to consider a sibling link to show a relationship between Epic and the grandfather. Although this doesn't show up in Portfolio - it's just a method to show a relationship which isn't limited by the hierarchy.
