  1. Enable editing of fields that are not on the Edit screen

    We recently started to use both Structure Gantt and Effectors. Both seem very useful, but one of the main problems we have with them is the ability to edit the issues fields. In the Gantt we would like to edit the start and finish fields, which nobody uses apart from within the Gantt. In the Effector, we would like to edit a field that will normally be empty (no one will set it, but the Effector). However, we found out that we can't edit a field if it does not appear on the Edit screen of the issue. This is…

  2. Show component info into (not yet existing) component item (as the grouper) in the structure view

    As the project component can be used for grouping (Group by Component/s) and it has some information (status, # of issues, lead, description, default assignee), it would be great that this information could be seem in the structure view, item details (when the component group is selected).

    Today, it is only showing in the Item Details window:

    No details

    No details are available for the selected item.

    Best regards,
    André

  3. Include "Epic Link" in Categories that are copied when adding issues

    The ability to add issues directly in structure is great. Especially when using the "Copy from" categories option to have a new ticket inherit a lot of values from another ticket. It would be REALLY useful to have "epic link" among the list of included fields that are copied. I've used the "required fields" workaround for other fields, but unfortunately "epic link" cannot be made required.

  4. When Grouping by Labels add ability to limit the labels in scope

    Group by Labels is a useful feature, but has limited efficacy when there are too many labels.

    Being able to limit grouping to a specific list of labels, would result in only those groups being displayed.

  5. Activate Automation Mode as the Default

    Hi,
    Transformations such as Filters and Sorts interfere with Automation Generators.
    When the user has clicked the Automation button to go into 'edit mode' - although they can still go into this mode when they do not have the edit generators permission - then Transformations are disabled, which is great!
    However, if the Structure has Automation Generators but a certain user has NOT gone into this mode, they can accidently (or do so without knowing the 'damage') apply Transformations, and mess up the Structure for other users.
    Proposed solution A:
    Rather than not being in 'edit mode' being the default,…

  6. Can "Remove Inserter/Extender Duplicates" be added to Structure Cloud?

    I use this filter automation all the time in Structure on Server, sad to see it's not there on Cloud.

  7. Support S-JQL in JIRA Cloud

    S-JQL is supported in non-Cloud versions of Structure. It would be really helpful if it could be made available to the Cloud version as well.

    Thank you for your suggestion!

    Unfortunately, Jira Cloud does not support custom JQL functions for now. So it’s not possible to migrate S-JQL as is.
    We may try to find a workaround for some specific use-cases. So could you please describe what you want to do with S-JQL?

  8. Conditional Highlighting Transformation

    Highlight attributes or rows in a structure board (bold, italic, font, color, background color) based on conditions. Visual queues which bring the eye to topics on a board which need special attention. Perhaps an extension of the Transformations capability (Filter Sort, Group, Extend and now Highlight) Highlight transformation accepts several of the same options as Filter transformation (JQL Query, S-JQL Query, Sprint, Text Query) and now an additional options. Highlight scope (attribute, row, row and children rows) and Highlight Type (Font, Bold, Italic, Color, background color)

  9. Integrate with zephyr for Jira

    Integrate with zephyr for Jira to be able to get the test execution and the linked defect related information into structures. Currently structures is able to show the Zephyr test case , but not the test execution status and the linked defects

  10. Show keyboard shortcuts more prominently

    The keyboard shortcuts looks great, however discoverability could be better. Even technically minded individuals in the majority do not go searching for keyboard shortcuts.

    Adoption of Structure may be more natural and frictionless if users were shown a permanent reference to keyboard shortcuts.

  11. Make Gantt baseline date attributes and delays available as Structure fields for reporting

    Baseline visualization is really great, it would be fantastic if we could have the dates and calculated delays of a (selectable) baseline available as structure columns to enable further reporting.

    Makes sense?

    Cheers,
    Aggelos

  12. Ability to save and "Perspectives" or combined set of Structure, View, Enabled Quickfilters that you can save and share

    Users get overwhelmed with the number of options that they have to change the way they visualize the data in the structure.

    Currently we can share a perspective which is similar functionality to what is being requested. However we cannot keep a library of perspectives in the system the same way we have the Views. This would help provide users with a library of options based on what they intend to do (i.e. risk management, project prioritization, reporting, etc.)

  13. Set different views for folders

    Different folders in Structure may have different needs for columns/views, so it would be great to be able to define a view to use for each folder.

  14. More/Custom/RGB coded colours in appearance settings

    There are only several colors in appearance setting for each slice. Please add setting of color with ring or with Color code to have unlimited quantity of colours for Gantt bars.
    As example we want to color different assignees with different colors, and we have more then 6 assignees

  15. Group by Link Type

    Group by Link Type.

    We have many link types used to represent different things.

    E.g.
    - A "Story" ticket may [LinkType: Satisfy] many "Acceptance Criteria" tickets
    - A "Bug" ticket may [LinkType: Block] a "Story Ticket"
    - An "Epic" may [LinkType: Solve] a "High Level Requirement" ticket

    Where tickets have multiple types of link coming from them, would be nice to have that as an explicit folder / grouping in the tree.

    E.g.
    Story X

    Blocked By
    Bug Y
    Bug Z
    Solves
    Acceptance Criteria A
    Acceptance Criteria B

  16. Granular control over Automation grouping, particularly with Labels

    Currently, grouping within Automation is kind of an "all or nothing" approach. For example, we use labels to identify which "product" our epics are for, but we also use the Labels field to track other information. For our main Structure, what we want to do is have the Automation grouping only look at the 6 labels we currently use for "product" tracking and ignore all of the others, but I cannot seem to find a way to do this without manually creating my own folders and setting up the Automation for each one; the drawback to this is we can't…

  17. Feedback on Learning About Structures

    I'm a product manager and have a technical background, but pretty much had to figure out how structures work using trial and error. I gave up the first few times I tried to build one because I just didn't get what was going on.

    It wasn't until I had a need to look at data across teams in a specific way, that without a structure, would have resulted in a ton of duplicated effort in Excel, that I forced myself to figure out how they work. At that point, I also discovered the formula columns and found that documentation to…

  18. Add fixversion as non-issue hierarchy element

    For Release Planning, I group by fixVersion in my hierarchy. But Gantt shows the start-end dates as of rolling up the dates below the grouped items. And there are no "sync" with jira version's dates.

    I propose the ability to include a non-issue elementes, synced with Jira's fixVersions, for synced scheduling at version/release level. Or something similar.

    Thanks!

  19. Named perspectives

    This one is so obvious - I'm surprised I didn't find it already.
    Provide a feature to save a Named Perspective that is permanent (until deleted) and can be modified.

    This would 1000% improve the usefulness of perspective views for us. As it works now, there are two major issues with perspective links:
    1) When not used for awhile, the perspective gets deleted and users are confused when they load the link
    2) There is no way to update the perspective. For example, if we want to add, remove, or change the fields shown, there is no way to update…

  20. Possibility of adding gateway/milestone lines to the gantt chart.

    I suggest to add the possibility to add a milestone/gateway line in the gantt chart. A simple feature as this ought to be a part of a gantt program.
