  1. Export to Google Sheets

    Make it possible to directly export a structure into Google Sheets. It will save one step converting an Excel file into Google Sheets.

  2. Why the limited functionality of Structure Cloud?

    Why the limited functionality? No Gadget for Dashboard? No column sort? No bulk change?

  3. As a user I would like to be able to view issues in a side pane instead of having to load a new page

    As a user, I would like to be able to view issues in a side pane instead of having to load a new page, so I save time in looking at the details of each issue

    Thank you for the suggestion!

    We cannot reuse Jira’s issue view, so we will have to implement our own, and implementing it will be a challenge. Most of the Jira fields can already be viewed inside Structure and changed by inline editing.

    Could you please describe what you would like to view or edit in the side panel?

  4. 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.

  5. Group by Link Type

    Group by Link Type.

    We have many link types used to represent different things.

    E.g.
    - A "Story" ticket may [LinkType: Satisfy] many "Acceptance Criteria" tickets
    - A "Bug" ticket may [LinkType: Block] a "Story Ticket"
    - An "Epic" may [LinkType: Solve] a "High Level Requirement" ticket

    Where tickets have multiple types of link coming from them, would be nice to have that as an explicit folder / grouping in the tree.

    E.g.
    Story X

    Blocked By
    Bug Y
    Bug Z
    Solves
    Acceptance Criteria A
    Acceptance Criteria B

  7. Upgrade the Structure Cloud Manage Structures page

    There's a lot of whitespace and not a lot of function.
    * You could use more than 3 columns to show more information, e.g., the description and the permissions.
    * You could support more actions:
    ** Copy an existing structure - then you could copy and tweak instead of starting from scratch every time
    ** Support right-click on Open to open in a new tab

  8. Deeper hierarchy in issue types

    Our organization would like to have a possibility to create another tasks layer above Epics (like in Jira's advanced roadmaps). For example, I create a new issue type "Initiative" in Jira and then I can group in structure gantt all tasks in this hierarchy:
    Initiative>Epics>Stories, Tasks>Subtasks.

    Actually, that’s something Structure can already help you with!

    Structure allows creating hierarchies using existing relationships between issues in Jira. If there is a link between two issues, Structure can visualize the relationships in the parent-child form, putting one issue above the other.

    You just need to use standard Jira link functionality which is available in any Jira version by default – the ‘blocks’, ‘implements’, etc type of a link. You can configure them at Settings | issues | Issue linking and create links between issues using the Link option on any Issue Page.

    And once links exist between Initiative and Epics, then you can build your structure with the desired hierarchy the following way:

    1. Create a structure.
    2. Click Automation | + | Insert and type a JQL query to match all Initiatives that you want to add.
    3. Then click + | Extend | Linked Items and…

  9. Group by Due Date

    I need to be able to group by Due Date, so that we can see the progress of all items assigned to a particular date. It seems like this may have been solved in server but not in cloud.

  10. Have a structure folder be a Jira component

    Would be great if this could work in 1 or both directions:

    1. When creating a folder, I have the option of pulling a component from my component list (perhaps there could be an option to instantly pull in all existing issues in the component)

    2. Ability to "nominate" a folder as a component (perhaps there could also be the option to add existing and newly added issues from the folder inside the structure to the Jira component)

  11. Support S-JQL in JIRA Cloud

    S-JQL is supported in non-Cloud versions of Structure. It would be really helpful if it could be made available to the Cloud version as well.

    Thank you for your suggestion!

    Unfortunately, Jira Cloud does not support custom JQL functions for now. So it’s not possible to migrate S-JQL as is.
    We may try to find a workaround for some specific use-cases. So could you please describe what you want to do with S-JQL?

  12. Present a warning or confirmation dialog box prior to removing a generator from a structure

    There is no undo for accidental deletion of generators or folders.
    If you accidentally delete a root folder - you can lose everything!

  13. 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

  14. introduce the same TP column as in the non-cloud versions

    The TP column provide icons with summarizing information. I miss this in the cloud version

  15. It would be nice if you could change the colour for different types of links

    Would it be possible to somehow recognize different types of links in the structure? e.g. add an icon for issues which are linked by "is blocked by" or change the colour of the blocking ticket.

  16. Implement a 'Progress Bar' for the structures while they're uploading

    Currently, there are no indicators of how long will it take to show up a structure and the 'spinning wheel' is showing up to several minutes (while uploading/reindexing a large number of tickets.
    The progress bar will help to determine that the 'work in progress' and there are no issues/hangs during this process.

    Thank you for the request.

    Could you please clarify it a little bit and share your use case? Do you want this progress bar to be split on estimated, remaining and logged separately as in standard Jira On-Premise? Or what would you like to see in this column actually? How are you going to use it?

  18. Can "Remove Inserter/Extender Duplicates" be added to Structure Cloud?

    I use this filter automation all the time in Structure on Server, sad to see it's not there on Cloud.

  19. When Grouping by Labels add ability to limit the labels in scope

    Group by Labels is a useful feature, but has limited efficacy when there are too many labels.

    Being able to limit grouping to a specific list of labels, would result in only those groups being displayed.

  20. Change status sort order by their position on the statuses page

    Hi,

    currently statuses in cloud version are sorted by their:

    1. Status category
    2. Project (global statuses are shown above)
    3. Status ID (field id?)

    and as a Jira admin I'm unable to change the order.

    In server/DC version this feature is much more usable and I'm able to change the order which has huge impact on how we use Structure in planning.

    Cloud sort order documentation: https://wiki.almworks.com/display/strcloud/Sort+Order

    Server/DC sort order documentation: https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Sort+Order
