Is there any way to create "Initiatives" in a Team-Managed project?

Hello guys....

We in our project need to group Epics under "Intiatives".

I found that it was possible by creating an issue type as "Initiative" and using Advanced Roadmaps Hierarchy  Configuration. 

Unfortunately, Advanced Roadmaps do not work for a Team-Managed project. I hope JIRA provides this feature for a Team Managed project as well in the feature.

For now this there any way to accomplish this...

  • Creating Initiatives would make our work easier to look epics grouped together.

In a word - no. Note initiatives is available for CMP in premium edition. I assume you are on premium?

Thanks @Jack Brickey 

Yes, I am on a Premium plan but a Team Managed Project!

Initiatives is only available for CMP.

I am SO, SO, SO sick of Feature X only being available in Project Type N.

I just want features x, y and z. I pay for premium. I want custom hierarchies. I don't want sprints. I want a board. I don't want components. I want a roadmap. I don't want versions. On and on and on it goes.

i certainly understand where you are coming from Scott. when you compare CMP and TMP are there are similarities they are quite different implementations. However I think that is by design. Not saying that is good or bad. I think it has its place and some businesses but in other businesses simply leveraging one or the other is likely best.

Simply, I want to be able to have 3 levels of hierarchy. Sub-tasks don't count..

@Scott If you find a system that does all of that please let me know.

I feel your pain.

How do I vote for this feature for TMP?

@Omar Chin-Keow 

ClickUp and Notion come to mind.  Notion is especially good. I'm currently evaluating how we can possibly move from Jira/Confluence to Notion.

@Scott Beeson Notion doesn't have autoincrement at the moment right? I havent been able to figure out if and when that will be implemented.
