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. 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 !

      • 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.

        • Horizontal scrollbar in structures and views

          If the view has many columns it is very hard to see what the values in the columns are. Horizontal scroll-bar is needed.

          • Have the ability to extend with certain add-on provided entities such as Adaptavist Test Management for Jira (kanoah).

            I know it's not likely that you can interface with every other add-on that structure customers might also use, but selfishly, I would love to be able to view all test cases associated with an issue under that issue (similar to Extend with linked issue).

            • As a gantt user, I would like to get my fix versions as milestones

              As a gantt user, I would like to get my the release date of my versions automatically projected as milestones on the timeline, so that when I bind a task to it, it automatically update the fix version/s field.

              • Allow to use the same link type in both ways

                Currently you can't select twice the same link for 2 Gantt dependency types. As a Structure admin, I would like to select the "blocks" link for Finish to Start and the "is blocked by" link for the Start to Finish.
                Thanks very much

                • 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!

                  • Artifical task as from BigGant

                    Hi, I thing something as Artifical Tasks from BigGang should be handy. We can´t planning far for future. In many times we need plan work which we did´t have fragmented to tasks. There is only highlevel overview that Member1 will have work on Project1 on week35 - week37 than on Project2 on week38-39 and etc. We need tasks which is not under project and created as Jira task, but only as shadow task significant than Person will be on Project. Folders can only group tasks but doesn´t have start date and end date.

                    • Support dependency offsets

                      As a project planner I need to be able to define a dependency with an offset.
                      Example: Task 5 can start 3 days after Task 4 starts. I would define that as a Start-to-start dependency from Task 5 on Task 4 with a +3 day offset.

                      • "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.

                        • Export Gantt View

                          I'd like to be able to print the Gantt view alongside the Structure View. The time can be shortened into 1 column and show start and finish dates alongside the list, the same way it is on the page but in the printed view.

                          • 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...

                            • allow showing worklogs for a specific sprint and team

                              I assume a lot of people want to use structure for reporting as well. Most teams work with sprints and therefore it is essential to be able to select "sprints" as a filter for worklogs in structure views. A structure/or view could show worklogs for a certain sprint only and besides also for the involved team as well

                              • 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…

                                • allow filtering a centralized time period for a view with multiple worklog columns

                                  when you report worklogs with structure, you want to use the worklog column and specify a time period.
                                  If you add multiple columns, it is quite an effort to change the time period from eg. dates of jan to feb. (currentmonth is helpful, but somewhat too dynamic if you want to compare months)

                                  To easily switch between months it is necessary to switch the time period you look on on the view level and influence alle worklog columns this way.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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

                                      • 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.

                                        • Documentation Update - How to create a new Formula Column

                                          The Structure 4.5 documentation doesn't identify how to create a NEW Formula Column.
                                          https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Formula+Column

                                          Step 1 should identify how to add a new field, not how to write the formula.
