Structure for JIRA: Ideas

Thank you for visiting our feedback website! Feel free to vote or post your own ideas. Make sure you turn on the option to notify you about changes and comments in your account settings, so that you can stay updated about the progress of the ideas you’re interested in.

  1. Ability to Turn off Structure Updates Temporarily

    We often use a structure in weekly meetings with product and engineering to review status. The structure captures works from across lots of projects and also references another structure for some content.

    Sometimes during the meeting, if there are lots of updates occurring for items in the structure (or dependent structure), it can cause the structure to reload, which is painful when you are using the structure to present. It would be good to have a toggle to prevent it from updating to avoid this.

  2. Gantt for Cloud: Sort on scheduled date

    The only sort functionality is by using issues fields. However, when using gantt, sorting by the configure start date field, it doesn't provide always good sorting when some issues have a start date and other issues are being scheduled automatically and would result in an earlier schedule start date than the manual entered start date.
    Hence,
    - sorting can be done on issues with a manual start date
    - sorting is automatically done for issues with a auto-scheduled start date

    But: sorting cannot be done between manual & auto-scheduled issues

  3. Have a structure folder be a Jira component

    Would be great if this could work in 1 or both directions:

    1. When creating a folder, I have the option of pulling a component from my component list (perhaps there could be an option to instantly pull in all existing issues in the component)

    2. Ability to "nominate" a folder as a component (perhaps there could also be the option to add existing and newly added issues from the folder inside the structure to the Jira component)

  4. Color settings for baseline bars

    Now baseline bar can be only gray. If you print Gantt chart on paper it is not easy to see baseline bars.
    Can you add color settings (maybe like for slices) for choosing color for baseline bars?

    Hi Alexander! Thank you for the request, so am I getting you right that your idea is to be able to select the baseline color while exporting Gantt chart? Would making it more contrast by default help you?

  5. Risk Management in Structure

    For our company would be useful a risk management addition, a same feature as Big Picture has with the Risk matrix.

  6. Respect dates of future sprints

    We want to plan projects using team sprints.

    In the documentation https://wiki.almworks.com/display/gantt/Planning+with+Sprints you say:

    Jira does not allow you to specify dates for future sprints, so Structure.Gantt schedules future sprints based on your Sprint configuration settings.

    This is not true, we can specify dates of future sprints but Structure seems to ignore the dates.

    Hi Michael!

    You’re right, starting from Jira 8.3 it is now possible to specify dates for future sprints, we’re going to support this in one of upcoming releases!

    Thank you for feedback!

  7. Expand Editing from Gadget

    Please add the ability to edit more fields especially custom fields from the Gadget (https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Editing+from+Gadget). The ability to edit custom numeric fields via jira dashboards/confluence pages would be awesome!

  9. Allow html (Jeditor) renderer for column type field

  10. Autocomplete Frequently Obscures the Text I'm Trying to Edit

    When doing things like adding a filter to an automation, the autocomplete frequently appears on top of the text I'm trying to edit, which prevents you from seeing what you are typing.

  11. Don't Dismiss Automation Dialog When Pressing Escape Key

    If you are adding a filter or some other automation that requires writing a query, the autocomplete often obscures the text of the query you are trying to write because the window is very small. If you press Escape to dismiss autocomplete to see what you are writing, the window closes, and you lose your work.

    In other entries, like the issue search screen, pressing the Escape key dismisses autocomplete, so it is more likely you will lose your work because you have the muscle memory of pressing escape to dismiss autocomplete.

    As a user, I would like to be able to view issues in a side pane instead of having to load a new page, so I save time in looking at the details of each issue

    Thank you for the suggestion!

    We cannot reuse Jira’s issue view, so we will have to implement our own, and implementing it will be a challenge. Most of the Jira fields can already be viewed inside Structure and changed by inline editing.

    Could you please describe what you would like to view or edit in the side panel?

  15. Why the limited functionality of Structure Cloud?

    Why the limited functionality? No Gadget for Dashboard? No column sort? No bulk change?

  16. Available resources

    Limiting number of resources that can be allocated for a day to specified number.

    Use case: I have two people working on a project and they can't do more that two cards at the same time.

  17. Ability to Stop Structure from Updating So You Can Change the Automation

    When trying to get the automation correct for a complex structure, you can spend a lot of time just waiting for things to load so you can update the automation. Would be great if there is a way to click on the spinning weel to stop the automation.

  20. Use Monaco editor for editing formulas

    The Formula column is a killer feature, but it can get tricky when the formula expression grows larger than the size of the editing area, and has a few levels of nested expressions.

    Beyond just the ability to enlarge the editor, it would be fantastic to have a more advanced editor to assist here, and the obvious candidate is the https://microsoft.github.io/monaco-editor/

    My suggestion for iterations for this would be:
    - Just replacing the actual editor and make sure it's still working when editing and not (so no functional changes)
    - Adding config and definitions needed for highlighting brackets and auto…
