  1. Use a field (i.e. sequential index) to automatically create hierarchy into Structure when importing from CSV/Jira.

    Hi, we usually load Jira items via CSV import, and it is very time consuming to arrange them with links or to manually indent them into the Structure.
    It would be great to use a field like the Structure's sequential index.
    For instance, using that field during import, to automatically arrange the hierarchy into the Structure (i.e., item 3.1.3 to be put automatically after 3.1.2 and underneath 3.1).

    Many thanks, and congrats for your works, it is very well done!

  2. Add Project Category

    Structure recently added the ability to use "Status Category" as a column. As Categories can be pretty powerful tools, I would like to suggest bringing "Project Category" in as a column as well.

    In addition to columns, the bigger need I have at the moment is to be able to "Group by" Project Category in the Automation options. I also noticed that Status Category is missing here as well, so I think it would be great to bring the existing work to the Automation section as well.

  3. 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!

  4. removing a column sort is not easy. Make it simple.

    Structure is sorted by Rank (through automation). I often click on Assignee column to sort by it. The only way to remove the sort is to click Transformation, Click the sort and click the remove. This is way too many steps to just remove a sort. One idea is to have each column have 3 states when clicked. Sort Ascending, Sort descending, Remove sort.

  5. Support Wallboards

    I would like the ability to use Structure gadgets also on wallboards. Technically you can already do that, but for example progress bars are not visible. I suppose this only requires a separate stylesheet?

  6. Yellow "x items selected" box shouldn't push list of tickets down when it appears

    Hi! I am using version 4.6.5

    When you select a ticket, the yellow "x items selected" box appears, and visually pushes the entire ticket list down so you visually "lose" the item you just clicked on.

    To see the problem in action, scroll to the very bottom and select the circle for the very last ticket. Instantly, the ticket gets pushed downward and disappears, so you have to scroll down to see it again.

    It's also a problem when I have some tickets selected, then do ctrl-A, ctrl-A to deselect all tickets. The yellow bar that was there goes away,…

  7. provide "root element of column x" in the variable selection list of formula column editor

    E.g. to calculate a percentual distribution over all rows of a structure, for the formula you need the 100% value which is typically shown on the root element.

    Therefore it would make a lot of sense, to be able inside "formula column A" to use a columns B's value, but the root element value! This should be possible even if column B is a formula itself.
    As we can already use variables like "Column B ..." in formulas it would be nice to add "Root Value of Column B ..." to the variable selection list

  8. Add link to documentation and resources from toolbar drop down menu

    I'm the admin and know of and installed structure, however, my JIRA users don't know what it is or how to use it. To help educate all please include links to helpful resources in your toolbar drop down such as documentation, etc.

    Thank you

  9. 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…

  10. Search Filters Should Retain At A Structure Level

    If you have several structures that you are attempting to manage when you switch between them your search panel tries a filter / set of search criteria from the previous structure. Then you have to figure out that you want to apply filter=29121 or whatever when you go from structure A to structure B.

    Easy fix.

  11. Add view setting to specify level of expansion

    When creating or editing views, allow specifying the degree of expansion. My use case is that I want to show all issues in the top three levels by default. Furthermore, I want the expansion setting to apply to the Confluence gadget.

    Alternatively, a perspective can be used to achieve the same result, but there is currently no way to use a perspective for the Confluence gagget. If the perspective could be used in the gadget, then I would recommend combining with http://structure.uservoice.com/forums/43181-structure-plugin-for-jira-ideas/suggestions/1773075-add-controls-to-expand-contract-one-level-at-a-t to allow an unlimited customization of gadget presentations.

  12. Display a collated view of multiple structures

    As a release manager, I want to see multiple structures represented in one view so I can easily collate the work multiple teams are doing. Our planning and management of structures is distributed, but I need to be able to see them all for enterprise planning purposes. Additionally, I want to be able to filter the one "master" view so I can see only those items related to specific criteria (e.g. release or project or component).

  13. Allow to see the structure in the issue type 'Test'

    When viewing an issue of type “Test”, created by Zephyr and assigned to a Structure, we are not able to see the corresponding Structure section as expected. If we change the type of the issue to anything else (Bug, Story, Epic, etc.) then the Structure section becomes visible. It seems that either Structure or Zephyr is not playing well together. This is critical to our organization as we try to integrate structured testing into our organization.

  14. Keep backlog always up-to-date with notifications

    I think it would be nice to have possibility to notify Scrum Master and Product Owner that some of UserStories are holding in a backlog for quite a long period of time (could be specified in extra settings), for example 3 moths.
    It should help to keep backlog always with actual UserStories.

  16. 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.

  17. Add ability to right click on selected item(s) to move to top, to bottom, down/up by like 50/100/200 rows at a time

    This will save time in organizing one's Structure especially those items that are completed and need to be moved way down or those items that are open and need to be brought way up. This would especially be useful when initially setting up one's structure.

  18. Allow CSV Output of Information from Structure Board

    It would be nice to have the ability to dump the structure board to a csv. Thinking that it would be something quick and dirty, with ' - ' noting structure, like this:
    "Name", "Est Hours", "Progress"
    "Mars Colony", "10h", "80%"
    " - Terraform", "6h", "50%"
    " - - Make Oxygen", "2h", "100%"
    " - Create Colony", "4h", "0"

    Once this was CSV, it could be manipulated in other programs. Right now, I don't see a way to get the Hierarchy or estimate roll-up data out of the system for project managers to use.

  19. Allow importing XRay tests creating a tree of folders corresponding to a test path in the XRay test repository

    XRay instroduced a Test Repository in v3. Now every XRay test has a field 'Repository Path' looking like: '/Test Repository/Release 1/Phase 1/AAA/'.

    However, the Structure view is still better than XRay repository. It would be great to be able to import XRay tests recreating the same folder structure as in the XRay test repository automatically. So that users can use both XRay test repository AND Structure.
