  1. Allow me to include explanatory text

    I build Structures for people to look at. There is always a type of interpretation I need them to make.

    So, I need the ability to put at the top and bottom of the page an explanation of what they are looking at and how they should read it.

    For instance, on a budget, to say "this sum of Remaining Estimate field is shown as 1w1d5h but should be interpreted as X hours; Export to Excel, total the field and multiply by our hourly rate * 24/8 for a billing number"

    Else people land on the screen and say "so…

    • Hide the days and unworkable hours of the gantt grid. Especially when it is extended to the maximum (hours)

      When the maximum detailing of the gantt chart is done, the days and hours that do not end up representing a greater amount of columns in the gantt. It would be much more practical with great visualization without these columns. Especially when there is a need to visualize tasks that are defined with small loads of hours and to be executed on the same day.

      • Reorganize the ManageStructure page

        - allow us to specify a short name for each synchronizer
        - move the items which appear once per structure, i.e., Name, Owner, Access, Popularity, Operations, out of the table to a header, so that the information in the Sync With column could be expanded: this would allow more room so that the Sychronizer Short Name could be displayed, and the type of synchronizer would not line-wrap.
        Thanks !

          • Please add Expr function to return number of working days between 2 dates or in general work with Calendars defined in Gantt

            Hi Almworks,

            We need very simple capacity management in Structure. For this to work we have almost everything:
            - ability to aggregate from tasks to Epics (and higher levels) for remaining estimates and spent
            - Top-level group can act as a teams, for which we can defined daily capacity and planned work ratio (using field with CASE() for example)

            What we lack is we can't calculate remaining capacity considering resources availability, mostly because we can't use production calendars (similar to NETWORKDAYS() of Excel) If we had this ability we could automatically build Structure view which shows current remaining estimates vs.…

            • Let user to zoom in and focus on just one hierarchy level

              One of the features that makes Workflowy so great, is the possibility to zoom-in to one hierarchy level only. I think this could work for Structure as well.

              • Integration on Jira Agile

                It's very useful the integration with Jira Agile (on Jira 6 and next releases), so I can see near the tab Epic and Version (in the backlog view) also the other structure that I can build.
                Actually, I have to manage two different views: Structure view and Backlog view. It's better to integrate this two views.

                  • Folder metadata

                    It would be useful to have folder metadata. There are many uses for this but at a high level you could definitely folder types (strategic vs. operational), provide folder owners etc.

                    • Structure lite

                      Have you ever thought about a lite version of structure with reduced functionality? e.g. only supporting parent / subtask or epic / story relations or homogenous link hierarchies for example.

                      • Retain hyperlinks when printing a Printable to a PDF

                        The Excel report retains hyperlinks back to the issues. The preview of the printable also does, but these are lost when printing to an actual PDF.

                        • 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.

                            • It would be great to be able to clear out the clipboard..

                              RIght now there does not appear to be a away to remove issues from the clipboard (other than pasting). Seems like a user may try to do a cut / copy and decide they no longer want the issues. Seems like this could be a fairly simple fix (maybe a x button above the clipboard?).

                              • Ability to connect to more that one Confluence instance (Structure.Pages)

                                Current (unless I'm doing something wrong) we can only link one Confluence instance when setting up Structure Pages integration.

                                It would be nice to have the ability to link more than one. This should come though with the proper UI to select the server when adding a page or searching.

                                • Add a "quick search" feature in structure drop down menu

                                  Currently if you want to find a structure that isn't in your most recent or top favorite you have to go to the more... option in the structure menu to find it. This means navigating around to other pages to search for a structure. It would be much nicer if there were a filter / quick search at the top of the menu that lets you quickly find and view a structure.

                                    • Allow ignoring specific projects from rolling up status to parent issue in status soll up synchronizer

                                      We use the status roll up synchronizer to signalize on an story the status of the implementation task which are childs of the issue using the structure plugin.

                                      But besides implemenation issues there also may be issues beneath that story which are not related to the implementation (e.g. project management tasks like verifying the implementation).

                                      So it would be perfect to select the projects from which statuses are rolled up to the story.

                                      Just like the selection on the parent itself, a selection of the childs (project/ issuetype) could be useful to take only the relevant child issues for the…

                                        In a multi project scenario can we have a scattered epic(collection of stories implemented by different projs) to be tracked as part single structure this will allow big programs to be tracked for their distributed progress in individual queues and collective status at one place for decision making.
