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).
Thanks for the tip Igor - that worked as expected. Initially I was looking for some kind of 'add existing structure' option.
Adam, thanks for your comment.
Actually, there's a way to copy one structure to another - use Multiple Selection and Copy & Paste to copy a subset of issues into a temporary clipboard, change current structure and paste. Documentation: http://wiki.almworks.com/x/cwBy
What Peter describes looks to me more like a single view with separate structures, which I think could be implemented with a dashboard and multiple Structure gadgets.
This could be as simple as the ability to search for and add multiple structures (along with the cumulative time calculations) to a newly defined structure. Currently the only way to do this appears to be to search for the issues and replicate the structures manually.
Peter - thanks! How exactly do you think it might look? Would you like to see several structures combined in one structure? How would issues mix and sort?
What if you create a dashboard and put there several Structure gadgets for different structures - does that help a bit?
