  1. 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.

    Hi!

    Indeed that would be a good addition! We’ll definitely do something like this!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  2. Possibility to change the start and the end dates of the entire project

    Our organization would like to have a possibility to change the start and the end dates of the entire project. In this way, we could have a big picture view of all our projects in the timeline.

  3. As a gantt user, I would like to get my fix versions as milestones

    As a gantt user, I would like to get my the release date of my versions automatically projected as milestones on the timeline, so that when I bind a task to it, it automatically update the fix version/s field.

  4. start date

    As a team lead, I want the Gantt view to show all unresolved issues as starting in the future irrespective of the view's "start date", so I can quickly visualise dependencies between teams that will impact their next sprint

    Hi Robert, thank you for the request! This feature is called a Backlog and planned to be available in one of upcoming releases!

  5. 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…

  6. Have option to show multiple tasks on one row in Gantt

    Currently we are using a different app for this but would prefer to use Structure.

    Hi Peter,

    Thank you for the suggestion, we’re evaluating this idea and figuring out how to do it the way it will work for most use cases. Can you please describe your use case in more detail?

    Thank you!

    Regards, Alexey

  8. Milestone Trend Analysis

    Since it is possible to create milestones, I am wondering if there is a possibility to track and analyses the trend of milestones? Like or similar to a milestone-trend-analysis

  9. 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.

  10. 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?

  11. 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

  12. Toggle to hide group indicator in Gantt view

    We have a number of Structures that are primarily used for program/portfolio high level views using the Gantt chart. These have a lot of groups and it can sometimes be visually distracting having all of the group indicators in the Gantt view, so it would be nice to have a way to toggle them on and off fairly easily; I think the "Gantt chart display options" menu would be a great place to put this toggle.

  13. Export Resource usage to excel, to generate shareable reports

    I'd like to be able to share resource usage information with people not using jira.
    Export to excel of the resource usage table could be useful.
    Graphical and printable representations of table also could be useful.

    Hi Andrea! An export of Resource allocation is planned to be done in one of upcoming versions. Thank you for feedback!

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

    Hi!

    Thank you for a suggestion. Showing more info is indeed a good idea and it is actually planned.

  17. add hash marks to the parent bar in Gantt based on child dates

    Allow the ability to add hash marks to the parent time bar in Gantt based on child dates. This would allow to see milestones without cluttering the view with multiple child issues.

  18. 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

  19. Reduce the margin/padding of every row to increase the level of entries visible in the screen

    Gantt charts are a good tools to see the globality of the project at once.
    Having a layout mode like: compact/confortable would be very interesting to maximized the visible content while looking at the dependencies in the gantt chart.

  20. Track a chain of linked issues

    You want to track a chain of linked (dependent) issues through a large structure. It would be useful to highlight predecessors and succesors of a given issue by issue link using, for example, colors.
