A cross project "project"

We have a structure of projects that describes basic parts of our SaaS product. Now, most of Epics are clearly heading to the specific value stream, so finding the correct project is relatively easy and ability to have an issues across the projects makes the visibility of such initiatives really great. 

What I struggle with is how to assign an initiative that adds a small functionality to all projects we have, imagine adding Intercom to all parts of product. How would you structure this? A separate project sounds like too much effort (as the task itself is small). Having some "platform initiatives" project?

Hi @Adam Sobotka 

Yeah I don't think it is too much of a problem to maintain it in a separate project and of course you can link those individual initiatives to specific issues in other projects. If you don't want to create a separate project then creating a common project for those initiatives or other task is also another option but I feel separate project will keep things well organised in your case.


Okay, thanks Ravi. It seems to be the best option. Challenge would be to have a daily in a team working on two or three such projects.
