  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Be able to propagate up a risk value

    If a sub task had a custom field which indicated it's current risk or similar be able to propagate that up to the top level to show the worst of the risks or some other flag

    e.g. if a single subtask of a item is red risk, be able to show that red risk in all of it's parents in the structure. choose the worst value of all sub nodes to show at the parent level.

  13. 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!

  14. ...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.

  15. Filter the issues that aren't picked up by the generators

    To force a rebuild of the structure based on generator rules only.
    The filter would help to identify the issues manually added into the structure.
    Then we can decide which issues (all or selected) to remove from the structure if not relevant.

    Problem: We cannot remove all the issues from the structure. There's a warning when removing at least one issue that is picked up by the generators, and when we acknoledge all the issues come back.

  16. allow me to define a story point budget for a folder / issue

    I typically have rough estimates for bigger projects and I would like to be able to add them to the structure so that I can get an overview of what needs to be done. At the moment I can only do this by adding JIRA issues with estimates, but the problem is that at this stage I do not really want to create these issues yet (at least not for everything).

    The closes thing to what I want is to create epics and set the rough estimates on the epics. Later I can refine my estimates by creating storys. The…

  17. Folders within epics and Epic extension automation

    I need to track business Epics, but these are usually large and I like to break them down into smaller-sub-epics to deliver and track (via multiple releases). Jira doesn't support Epics with Epics (unbelievable really) and I need to work at ira as well as structure level so I create folders in structure under the main epic to perform this partitioning. Each Jira story is still linked to the main epic so I can use Epic reporting in main Jira, but it does mean that I can now track sub-epics at the folder level in structure too. Unfortunately this means…

  19. Be able to Receive a notification when an item is manually added to a structure folder and/or it's sub-folders

    Be able to Receive a notification when an item is manually added to a structure folder and/or it's sub-folders. That way when someone adds an item or removes one to an existing structure folder, anyone subscribed to notifications for that folder would get an email notification. to implement, just add a button to the button bar when the folder is selected and when you click the button, you get a popup with an option to subscribe to notifications like you do with issues in JIRA.

    Obviously, this would only be available for folders WITHOUT automation.

  20. Connnect more than one JIRA instance

    When working with external partners they often use their own JIRA instance. You can connect them via the JIRA application link feature with your own JIRA instance and are able to set links between issues in the two JIRA instances this way.

    It would be great to be able to display linked issues from the remote JIRA in your own structures.
