  1. Use a field (i.e. sequential index) to automatically create hierarchy into Structure when importing from CSV/Jira.

    Hi, we usually load Jira items via CSV import, and it is very time consuming to arrange them with links or to manually indent them into the Structure.
    It would be great to use a field like the Structure's sequential index.
    For instance, using that field during import, to automatically arrange the hierarchy into the Structure (i.e., item 3.1.3 to be put automatically after 3.1.2 and underneath 3.1).

    Many thanks, and congrats for your works, it is very well done!

  2. Allow quick transformations from Gadget

    Hello,

    I am in love with structure. Thank you so much for making it!

    Would it be possible to put the Quick Transformations in the Dashboard Gadget in Jira?

    Thank you!

  3. Allow "Inversion" of Quick Filters so they could effectively "add" rather than remove issues.

    We need to use quick transformation filters that behave as if they are connected with an "OR" instead of an "AND" clause. I realize doing that would be problematic, but there would be a simple workaround if it were possible to merely invert the effect of selecting the filter buttons. Specifically, when the button is deselected (the default state) the filter would be applied, and when selected the filter would be deactivated.

    This could be implemented by providing a single checkbox in the edit screen for a quick filter that inverts the effect of the filter. So instead of not…

  4. Group by Folder

    We have a use case where we want this grouping order:

    Pre-Code Change (Folder)
    Quality Group (Project)
    Ticket
    Ticket
    Ticket Etc
    Foundation (Project)
    Ticket
    Project 3
    Obtaining Development System (Folder)
    Quality Group (Project)
    Ticket
    Foundation (Project)
    Ticket
    Project 3
    Coding and Validation (Folder)
    Quality Group (Project)

  5. Artifical task as from BigGant

    Hi, I thing something as Artifical Tasks from BigGang should be handy. We can´t planning far for future. In many times we need plan work which we did´t have fragmented to tasks. There is only highlevel overview that Member1 will have work on Project1 on week35 - week37 than on Project2 on week38-39 and etc. We need tasks which is not under project and created as Jira task, but only as shadow task significant than Person will be on Project. Folders can only group tasks but doesn´t have start date and end date.

  6. Ability to hide the time line in the gantt chart view

    It is a widely adopted practice to not share specific dates in long term planning and it would therefore be helpful if I could hide the dates/timeline in the gantt view.

    The only option today is to zoom out but that is not practical as the feature-bars will become to small and the timeline is still visible but in years.

    I want to be able to show how feature A is scheduled before Feature B and that it is dependent upon Feature C being completed without having to show when the features will be worked upon.

    Simply hiding, or making…

  7. Provide the option to "Extend with Linked Issues" with all Link Types

    Would it be possible to provide an option to "Extend with Linked Issues" with all Link Types instead of having to create an extender for every Link Type? Hopefully that makes sense...

  8. Show additional information on the ressources panel

    The ressource panel only indicates the ressource name. For supporting scheduling It would be very helpful to have more information directly in the ressource panel, e.g. "Units", used calendar and a marker or counter that x availability periods are aligned to the respective resource.

  9. have a aggregation modifier #fromTopToMe #fromBottomToMe

    To provide a backlog forecast it is essential to show what content could be done within a certain time or time budget. If we configure the budget in a top level issues custom field, structure could SUM not only by level, but also the contents of the current list of elements (eg. by priority) and a formula could show from which element the budget is overspent.

  10. Send to top/send to bottom

    I miss the "Send to Top" and "Send to Bottom" functionality that is in the context menu on Agile boards. I learned how to cut/paste to move tickets but that is a lot of clicks and scrolling for a common (for me) action.
    I saw a comment from Igor in another suggestion to open a new panel with the same structure, and drag the ticket to the top/bottom of the new panel. I tried to do this and I got this error "Cannot move issues inside JQL query result."
    I'm still feeling my way around structure so maybe I'm doing…

  11. Subscription to a structure view

    Jira has a "issue filter subscription" feature, which runs a filter at a certain time of the day and email the user with the results. Structure could have a similar subscription feature tied to a particular structure's view, where a snapshot of that view would be taken at a certain time of the email and the results would be exported to excel and emailed to the user.

    My company currently use structure to keep track of our day-to-day progress by manually exporting structures to excel at the same time each day. Automating the exporting would allow us to automate the…

  12. Folder metadata

    It would be useful to have folder metadata. There are many uses for this but at a high level you could definitely folder types (strategic vs. operational), provide folder owners etc.

  13. Report or filter on accumulated fields

    FIelds like 'progress', 'estimate' or 'logged' are calculated (accumulated) over the sub-structure under the issue. I would like to be able to report those values in reports (e.g. accumulated estimate) or use them in JQL queries (e.g. accumulated_estimate > 2w)

  14. Structure subscription

    I have been searching for an option to subscribe to a structure (similar to a filter). If this is not available, it might be a good idea to add this as some of the structures cannot be created using filters.

  15. Enable use of existing, saved filters to populate a structure vs. having to manually enter filter criteria

    Use case: I have an existing filter that is the basis for a board. The board dynamically updates, whenever I change the criteria of the filter upon which the board is based. However, if I want to use that same existing filter with a Structure, I must replicate the criteria in structure, and then perform dual maintenance, whenever I want to change filter criteria. If the saved filter could be used by Structure, I would only have to modify the filter itself. This might be addressed in the process of solving the following existing idea:

  16. Log changes

    Sometimes someone deletes stuff from the structure and we do not know how the structure looked before (no version management exists).

    In this case, as a workaround we would like to have a log to see what has changd.

  17. Yellow "x items selected" box shouldn't push list of tickets down when it appears

    Hi! I am using version 4.6.5

    When you select a ticket, the yellow "x items selected" box appears, and visually pushes the entire ticket list down so you visually "lose" the item you just clicked on.

    To see the problem in action, scroll to the very bottom and select the circle for the very last ticket. Instantly, the ticket gets pushed downward and disappears, so you have to scroll down to see it again.

    It's also a problem when I have some tickets selected, then do ctrl-A, ctrl-A to deselect all tickets. The yellow bar that was there goes away,…

    Whenever any issues in the structure is edited, notification should go to people subscribed for structure to indicate structure content is changed

  19. Hide the days and unworkable hours of the gantt grid. Especially when it is extended to the maximum (hours)

    When the maximum detailing of the gantt chart is done, the days and hours that do not end up representing a greater amount of columns in the gantt. It would be much more practical with great visualization without these columns. Especially when there is a need to visualize tasks that are defined with small loads of hours and to be executed on the same day.

  20. analysis of big data in the structure

    Поскольку структура может включать в себя до 10000 задач, будет полезно иметь возможность в отдельном окне проводить анализ этих данных. Какова совокупная трудоемкость в разрезе: проектов, компонентов и т.п. , Какова продолжительность работы одной команды на структуру и т.п. Полезно так же создавать кастомные срезы для анализа типа: стратегические задачи, текущие задачи и т.п.
