  1. Allow users of the Tempo Plugin to see a per-user summation of time usage

    We always have multiple coders on our projects, and almost always have multiple coders contributing to each piece of functionality within a project. We use the Tempo Plugin for JIRA to keep all that straight.

    Structure's time summations are really helpful and beneficial. But for our multi-coder environment, we have to look at that summation in Structure, then look at every subtask and split out exactly who contributed how much to the Structure main task, because different coders are at different billing rates. This is not workable except on very small projects.

    What would be ideal is if we could…

  2. Use JIRA Structure as navigation tree on linked Confluence content

    JIRA & Confluence are often used hand-in-hand... e.g. new ideas are formulated on CFL, leading to linked tasks in JIRA & followed by documentation etc.. on Confluence again..

    The need to reorder issues in JIRA, & use structure to navigate them, can be projected to linked confluence contents as well.

    The way i see it, structure widget could replace the space navigation panel.

    JIRA issues & corresponding Confluence pages could be linked via labeling (value == structure item ID)

    This is the idea in a nutshell, I'd be happy to discuss in more detail if helpful.

  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. 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.

  5. Resource leveling by rank, to respect the backlog order

    According to Scrum the backlog order/rank defines the priority of an issue. When applying resource leveling, there is no option to respect this priority by placing first issue, delaying the next and so on.

  7. Provide the option to "Extend with Linked Issues" with all Link Types

    Would it be possible to provide an option to "Extend with Linked Issues" with all Link Types instead of having to create an extender for every Link Type? Hopefully that makes sense...

  8. Add progress aggregation based on the number of sub-items

    Parent issue progress % seems incorrect based on underlying children progress % values, assuming equal weighting per child.

  9. Please add Expr function to return number of working days between 2 dates or in general work with Calendars defined in Gantt

    Hi Almworks,

    We need very simple capacity management in Structure. For this to work we have almost everything:
    - ability to aggregate from tasks to Epics (and higher levels) for remaining estimates and spent
    - Top-level group can act as a teams, for which we can defined daily capacity and planned work ratio (using field with CASE() for example)

    What we lack is we can't calculate remaining capacity considering resources availability, mostly because we can't use production calendars (similar to NETWORKDAYS() of Excel) If we had this ability we could automatically build Structure view which shows current remaining estimates vs.…

  10. Enable use of existing, saved filters to populate a structure vs. having to manually enter filter criteria

    Use case: I have an existing filter that is the basis for a board. The board dynamically updates, whenever I change the criteria of the filter upon which the board is based. However, if I want to use that same existing filter with a Structure, I must replicate the criteria in structure, and then perform dual maintenance, whenever I want to change filter criteria. If the saved filter could be used by Structure, I would only have to modify the filter itself. This might be addressed in the process of solving the following existing idea:

  11. Allow "Inversion" of Quick Filters so they could effectively "add" rather than remove issues.

    We need to use quick transformation filters that behave as if they are connected with an "OR" instead of an "AND" clause. I realize doing that would be problematic, but there would be a simple workaround if it were possible to merely invert the effect of selecting the filter buttons. Specifically, when the button is deselected (the default state) the filter would be applied, and when selected the filter would be deactivated.

    This could be implemented by providing a single checkbox in the edit screen for a quick filter that inverts the effect of the filter. So instead of not…

  12. Allow multiple simultaneous updates

    The edit capability in the table view is very helpful but even more helpful would be ability to update multiple fields and/or multiple issues. Is copy a row or column or table from Excel into structure table.

  14. Report or filter on accumulated fields

    FIelds like 'progress', 'estimate' or 'logged' are calculated (accumulated) over the sub-structure under the issue. I would like to be able to report those values in reports (e.g. accumulated estimate) or use them in JQL queries (e.g. accumulated_estimate > 2w)

  15. 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

  16. Progress by status category

    Currently progress by status is supported(among other statuses).

    To simplify configuration in complicated jira setups it would be nice if one could filter by status category. Instead or in combination.

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  20. Structure of Structures - no data just an index with link to the relevant structure

    I would like to create a Structure of Structures for structure navigation, whereby specific child elements allow you open the referenced structure. I have many structures that contain the same data, just displayed differently for different user groups.

    The use case is in essence:
    Parent - Folder (a name listing a group of similar or related structures)
    Child - New Structure Link - simply a mechanism to either open or navigate to the referenced structure - includes description.

    Implementation:
    Is it possible to add a new Structure element into the "Add" Dropdown called "New Structure Link". (i.e. New Issue, New…
