From Idea to any other specific type of issue in Product Discovery project

Hi all,

For now, issues in PD project are only the one which are named "idea".

In our agile framework, which is specifically designed for B&B digital, we don't use iead but rather "initiative" to track any topics from Discovery to Delivery.

To make PD project more flexible, could it be an option to modify the type of issues, or manage multiple of them, as it is possible in any other Jira project?




Hi @David Spire

Isn't an initiative a collection of epics as opposed to an idea?

I call ideas "product opportunities" but maybe that is just me.


Hi David, 

Thanks for this feedback. We already have this on the roadmap - so you can track things like "initiatives", "problems", "solutions", "opportunities" and their relationship. 

What types of issues are you interested in, and how do they differ?



Thanks Tanguy, that's great!

We're only using "initiative" as deliverable we track from end to end. But I guess that having possibility to set problems, solutions, opportunities in addition to idea should be great to others.

@Tanguy Crusson - same as David.  We are shifting to the Opportunity Solutions framework and would like to map to this:
