For CA Agile Central (fka: Rally)
All the Portfolio Tracking tools seem to track only at the Story level (% Done). Is there a way to track higher order items (Epics/Themes) against Feature progress instead? We tend to discover our stories as we go along, but we have our 'features' somewhat better known (at a rough granularity). What is the best practice to hydrate a meaningful portfolio that we can track, without doing upfront planning or creating tons of 'placeholder' stories.
The Plan Progression View should help. Can you check it out:

We had a similar need and did not find a perfect solution for our On Prem account. We ended up creating the feature, and using template user stories to manage each phase of the feature. It is still a manual process to move the template user stories through each phase, but because they are templates, its a great reminder of what needs to be done at each phase and how it went.
