You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Send to top/send to bottom

    I miss the "Send to Top" and "Send to Bottom" functionality that is in the context menu on Agile boards. I learned how to cut/paste to move tickets but that is a lot of clicks and scrolling for a common (for me) action.
    I saw a comment from Igor in another suggestion to open a new panel with the same structure, and drag the ticket to the top/bottom of the new panel. I tried to do this and I got this error "Cannot move issues inside JQL query result."
    I'm still feeling my way around structure so maybe I'm doing…

  2. 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...

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. Allow referencing a formula based Structure column within S-JQL expression

    Currently, I can only refer real fields of a JIRA issue within S-JQL function structureQuery parameter.

    Example: "issue in structure("Planned Stories", "issueOrAncestor in [type = Epic and status = Open]")"

    But it will be absurdly powerful if I could refer to a formula based Structure column values, existing in a selected View in e.g. such way:

    issue in structure("Planned Stories Structure","Planned Stories View", "issueOrAncestor in [type = Epic and 'Adjusted Storypoints' > 'Planned StoryPoints']")

  7. 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.

  8. Choose what group label to display and which order for field fixVersion

    This idea is a to provide a way to display only (or to hide) some fixVersion instead off all of them when we use the grouping feature. If it is possible to choose the storing order (asc, dsc) it would be awesome !

  9. Use the standard Atlassian User Interface objects

    I would suggest you to resort exclusively to the AUI objects for your interface instead of your custom ones that clearly gives the impression that you are exiting the Jira world to step into another one.
    I think you user would deserve a smoother user experience, with the same kind of buttons, icons, tables to which they are already used to. I'm especially talking about the transformation/filters features that should be improved in that direction to my mind. Thanks for you great achievement!

  10. "Sum over Sub-items" For Dates / Aggregate Dates - with the ability to choose Max or Min Date

    I'd like to see my dates roll up the hierarchy so that I can see higher level estimates as they roll up. For example, if I have a folder for a project and I have a number of tasks underneath, I'd like to see the latest due date in the project, or the earliest start date.

  11. 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:

  12. 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…

  13. add custom fields to structure-folders

    Budgets are often not added as issues. Structure could add value by allowing some limited amount of named custom fields on structure-folders (like notes, but some more). They would bind to a structure and could be accessed from formula columns.

  15. Allow quick transformations from Gadget

    Hello,

    I am in love with structure. Thank you so much for making it!

    Would it be possible to put the Quick Transformations in the Dashboard Gadget in Jira?

    Thank you!

  16. notify if any issues are edited in a structure

    Whenever any issues in the structure is edited, notification should go to people subscribed for structure to indicate structure content is changed

  17. Add "Basic" search feature as an alternative to JQL

    For users who are not well versed in JQL, it would be nice to have the ability to add Jira filters in a way that is comparable to Jira's "Basic" search feature, rather than by inputting the JQL manually.

    Perhaps, on the dialog that is displayed when the user adds a JQL insert automation for the first time, we could have a "Basic" link that converts the query to the basic view, just like Jira's issue navigator. Then, all the JQL would be converted into a series of UI inputs (user pickers, drop-downs, etc).

    In addition to this, it would…

  19. Documentation Update - How to create a new View

    The Structure 4.5 documentation is lacking when describing how to create new views.

    For example, if I take "Basic View" and copy it to my Structure, I would expect that I could edit it, but the View Details screen says

    Access: Use - you can use this view but you cannot update it.

    There is no "Save As" button as indicated by the documentation.

  20. Multiple parents within same structure

    Allow an issue to have multiple parents within the same structure. My teams use JIRA to manage their messy hierarchies of requirements (vision, needs, goals, objectives, requirements, desirements, stories of all kinds, tasks, epics, bugs,... We make them all the same JIRA issue type "Requirement."). Often the same requirement "elaborates" multiple higher level requirements, so the hierarchy is messy. We have been using a custom link type of "elaborates"/"elaborated by" to represent all the requirements in the hierarchy, but it is difficult to see and manage when the messy hierarchy has many levels and issues.
