  1. Ability to weight Progress column by number of issues

    (e.g. a parent’s progress is just based on the progress of its children, but if one of those children has 10x more children than the other, it would be nice to weight it that way)

  2. allow us to synchronize links between sibling and cousin issues

    Right now the link synchronizer works only between parent and sub-issues. However, this is often not enough. For example, we would like to automatically link "development" and "system testing", which are usually sibling issues under a single "Change Reqest ### for system XYZ" issue.

    A use case for "cousin" links is similar: "integration testing" should depend on all "system testing" issues within the same "Change Request ###" parent/grandparent issue.

    Right now we work around this by using template structures, but this is fiddly and error prone, since issues like "integration testing" should be edited manually after N "change request for…

  3. prevent double counting

    When an issue appears multiple times in a structure (e.g. epic link and issue link),the progress calculation should be configurable to prevent / allow double counting

  4. Name in issue viewer

    When beeing displayed in the issue viewer and the default structure name should be "None" to avoid confusion as another structure name makes it seem to belong to one.

  5. Reverse hierarchy

    For instance when looking on what a team (or singel dev) is working on. I would like to expand an issue and see what motivates it.

    It is possible to do with normal link types but not with epic link and sub-ask-link

    So what i want to do is to create a view from the perspective of a developer. follow parents and depends on deeper. Having the story as the first layer.

    Story: Build a nice landing page
    - Epic: make the onboarding and retention of new customers better (reverse epic link)
    - Initiative: gett 1000 new customers (link)

  6. 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?

  7. Regular Expression Text Function for substring extraction

    A regular express text function would be very useful to extract content from a Text field into a column.

    For example, if a Description field has:

    Name: Value
    Name1: Value2

    I can write a regex formula to extract out the value for Name: into a Column.

  8. Have option to customize or hide what buttons are shown

    Trying to get users to update information who are less familiar with Jira. Want to customize what options/buttons users see so it's less overwhelming.

  9. Ability to resize column widths on printable page

    The column widths of the printable page are set by Structure and often ones with a lot of text (like Description or Comments) end up too wide. Would be great to be able to set widths before exporting

  10. Intergation width standard JIRA filters

    Allowing in JIRA filters can be filtered by issues that you belong to a structure.

  11. support project roles in JIRA

    Structure currently only supports permission groups but not project roles. If a project is set to support project roles then there could be surprises if some users are part of the right role but do not belong to the groups that Structure has been permitted to.

  12. allow a status synchronizer to allow rollups based the first subitem entering the next stage

    The status synchronizer allows as of today(2.0.0) only a rollup of the status to the parent when all children have reached this status (i.e. all children are "done" > parent is set to "done").

    Imagine a workflow like: open > in progress > done.

    For the status "in progress" it would be great to have a "roll-up once the first subitem enters a new state". So the parent reflects the new status once the first sub-item has been moved from "open" into "in progress".

  13. 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…

  14. support grouping of issues by link type

    e.g. all 'Blocked By' issues added via Extend automator grouped together under parent.

    This makes the Jira relationship between Structure parent/child issues clearer.

  15. Granular control over Automation grouping, particularly with Labels

    Currently, grouping within Automation is kind of an "all or nothing" approach. For example, we use labels to identify which "product" our epics are for, but we also use the Labels field to track other information. For our main Structure, what we want to do is have the Automation grouping only look at the 6 labels we currently use for "product" tracking and ignore all of the others, but I cannot seem to find a way to do this without manually creating my own folders and setting up the Automation for each one; the drawback to this is we can't…

  17. Option to change font style of Summary text for different levels of hierarchy

    Formula column with Wikimarkup is great, but since you cannot use this on the Summary column (which must be included in the Structure as is) there isn't a way to clearly distinguish the different levels of your hierarchy. Would be great if you could opt to bold the Summary column for Level 0, for example.

  18. Use lightboxes when managing structure properties

    Currently when editing a structure (Operations->Configure), you are throw into a new page for editing. When you are finished and go back, the structure list reloads and moves you to the top and I cannot find my place anymore. This is a problem when you are viewing a list of over a thousand structures.

    A popup lightbox would make things much better and allow me to keep my place in the list of structures. This could apply to sync settings, and all other management operations.

  19. Open issues in Jira search view

    It would be helpful if you could open a folder, sub-folder or a grouping, within your structure, in the Jira search view pre-populated with the issues in folder. This would allow you to easily share specific issues in your structure with relevant engineers so that they don't have to find the issues themselves within your structure.

    Examples:
    Create a sub-folder and insert issues using JQL. Open all the issues in that sub folder, in a Jira search view. From the Jira search, you can easily share with team members.

    Thank you for the suggestion. As I understand, you want to share issues from the structure somehow, right?

    There is the “Sharing a Perspective” feature in Structure for Jira On-Premise. It allows you to focus a specific folder or select some issues and share this view with others in the form of a permanent link.

    Would this feature solve your problem if we migrate it to Structure Cloud? You can read more about it in our wiki https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Sharing+a+Perspective

  20. Possibility to disable/filter the Structure notifications in the project & user Activity Streams

    Currently only the Actitvity Stream "gadget" has the option to configure filters.
    The standard (non-gadget) Jira Activity Stream on the Project Summary page & on the User profile page does not have this option. Hence these Activity Streams are heavily 'polluted" with Syncronizer updates and are becoming useless..
