I've created a custom issue type ("Initiative") for my Jira Work Management project. When I open that new initiative issue it does not look like I can add child or parent issues. When I go to `Project settings > Issue types > Initiatives > Fields`, child and parent links are not available to add to the issue type. Is there a way to add these fields?
so sorry for the late reply, this somehow slipped through!

JWM doesn't currently support hierarchy levels above epic; natively, this is only available in Jira Software Premium, through Advanced Roadmaps.
However, if you're open to solutions from the Atlassian Marketplace, you may want to have a look at the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.
JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. In a sense, it has a few things in common with JWM's list view, however JXL comes with a range of advanced features, and also works in (and across!) projects of any type, not just JWM projects. Plus, it is capable of showing any number of hierarchy levels, like so:
You can model issue hierarchies based on Jira's built-in parent/child relationships (like epic/story, or story/sub-task - or anything you configured in Advanced Roadmaps, if you have it enabled), and/or based on issue links. This also plays nicely with JXL's other advanced features, such as support for bulk editing via copy/paste, sum-ups, or conditional formatting.
Any questions just let me know,
