  1. provide "root element of column x" in the variable selection list of formula column editor

    E.g. to calculate a percentual distribution over all rows of a structure, for the formula you need the 100% value which is typically shown on the root element.

    Therefore it would make a lot of sense, to be able inside "formula column A" to use a columns B's value, but the root element value! This should be possible even if column B is a formula itself.
    As we can already use variables like "Column B ..." in formulas it would be nice to add "Root Value of Column B ..." to the variable selection list

  2. Documentation Update - How to create a new View

    The Structure 4.5 documentation is lacking when describing how to create new views.

    For example, if I take "Basic View" and copy it to my Structure, I would expect that I could edit it, but the View Details screen says

    Access: Use - you can use this view but you cannot update it.

    There is no "Save As" button as indicated by the documentation.

  3. Link a structure to a JIRA board, not just a project

    The description of of Structure on the Project page (https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Structure+on+the+Project+Page) is really misleading because this image is of viewing a JIRA board, not a project. With JIRA boards I can use JQL to divide a projects (or multiple projects) issues across many boards, but I do not have a way to link that board to a specific structure that also filters for the same set of issues.

    Having a default structure for a project is fine, but I would also like to be able to correlate a structure to a board. This would help teams that for example…

  4. notes

    To fully take advantage of the new Notes field it would be really nice to make it independent of the issues to which it is added. As it works now, if a structure contains a multiple of the same issue and a note is added this note is attached to all of these issues.

    Separating this is actually the only thing left to be able to use the structure plugin as a product structure documenting an entire product portfolio. One issue for each part and the notes field (renamed "Qty" or similar) to hold the amount of parts of the…

  5. Support a User Story Map View

    User Story Mapping is becoming a very popular way to organize your product backlog: http://www.slideshare.net/nashjain/user-story-mapping

    It basically uses a 3 level structure but displays tickets in a vertical layout, as illustrated here:

    There are only a few tools that support this online, and only one that is part of JIRA. The market is ripe for a tool that is robust, simple, and flexible. Since Structure already organizes tickets hiearchically, all that would be required would be to create a new view of a Structure, with a possible limit of 3-4 levels. (The Story Map structure only supports 3, but I…

  6. Require the user to confirm a deletion of an issue before it is removed from the structure.

    Require the user to confirm a deletion of an issue before it is removed from the structure. Right now there is a message that an issue has been deleted, but my users aren't noticing the message. Need to make them verify the deletion before it will occur.

  7. Would really like to be able to color fields, columns or rows in structure chart (without having to pay for expensive plugin)

    I create some rather large Structure charts with multiple levels of nesting. Want to be able to highlight aspects of the chart (Rows, Cells, Columns) with color. This helps with focus (these items are critical), organization and overall visual appeal.

  8. prevent double counting

    When an issue appears multiple times in a structure (e.g. epic link and issue link),the progress calculation should be configurable to prevent / allow double counting

  9. Would like a way to get Structure formula calculations into "normal" Jira custom fields

    Structure formulas are extremely useful. Now our users would like ways of using them in other places within Jira. This may be tough in some ways because they are specific to the structure they are part of, but even something simple like the ability to choose an menu option or call some API to commit formulas into an underlying custom field could be quite useful.

  10. Limit the issuetypes for automators so you can use multiple link automators per structure

    With Synchronizers it is possible to limit the issuetypes. Therefore it is possible to have multiple link synchronizers for different issuetypes.

    Example:
    one could defined a parent/child link between epics and features and use a is blocked link between features and bugs. with automators this scenario can not be implemented at the moment.

  11. Use different fonts for the levels in the hierarchy to make them more distinct

    It would be great for easier differentiation to make the font larger for higher level issues in the hierarchy. E.g.

    Level 0 - H1 Bold
    Level 1 - H2 ...
    Level 3 - H3
    etc

  12. Hide empty folders

    In structure folders created based on custom fields will show "no value"-folder in case issues haven't set the related custom field. It would be nice to get an option to define whether to show such "no value" folders or to show such issues without a folder under their parent.

  13. Can Structure use Portfolio Data

    Structure would be a great supplement to the information provided by Portfolio. It would be great if this data could be used by Structure ... perhaps even have a Portfolio Structure Template?

  14. be able to copy directory path

    This feature can help a user orientate an issue in a structure, or share the path with another user easily.

  15. Change the colors of the font or/and background of the Structure folders

    It would be great to be able to customize the appearance of the Structure Folders in order to have a possibility of manual highlighting the "problematic" folders.

  16. Sync task to add Tasks to Folders

    Folders is a great new feature in 3.0 (long awaited) but the sync tasks do not allow tasks to be added to folders which is an obvious feature for auto adding tasks to structure and also a huge use of ordering and sorting tasks in structure.

  17. improve support for Quick Transformations

    Currently you can save transformations as quick transformations which is a great feature. I see however certain potential to make it even better:

    - Combine several transformations into a single Quick Transformation (e.g. filtering and grouping)
    - Define Quick Transformations for the "Jira" part of the double grid: I often look for items assigned to a version in order to add them to my structure. It would be super convenient if I could save it as a Quick Transformation.

    Thanks for your consideration and keep up the great work!

  18. ...have separators, or sticky issues, that stay on top.

    My idea is that I want specific issues to not be affected by the sorting. Not affected, so that they can stay on top (or bottom).

    Another cool way to do this may be a separator or separators, that can be added similar to the way folders are added. Except these separators allow their content to stay where the user assigns it to.

  19. Add last comment as a column

    Comment can be used to know the current status along with status of jira. Therefore, it will be great if last comment can be displayed.
