  1. Allow you to wrap text in a column in the structure view.

    I would like to be able to see 6 columns and have the option to see ALL the text wrapped not just the starting text. I'd like to retain the option to just see the starting text too though. I have used the full screen real estate but I can still only see the start of the wording.

    Current work around is to only have 1 or 2 columns showing at once and add in the others as necessary later.

    e.g. View currently shows:

    Summary Description Labels Components Assignee

    Client Doc Data in clie Docum Disclosure Sarah Sm

    • Develop Structure plugin for JIRA cloud version

      Considering nowadays users want to use in cloud circumstances, why don't you develop Structure plugin for JIRA cloud? I can't find any other project management tools than Structure. Any plans?

        • Be able to propagate up a risk value

          If a sub task had a custom field which indicated it's current risk or similar be able to propagate that up to the top level to show the worst of the risks or some other flag

          e.g. if a single subtask of a item is red risk, be able to show that red risk in all of it's parents in the structure. choose the worst value of all sub nodes to show at the parent level.

          • ...have separators, or sticky issues, that stay on top.

            My idea is that I want specific issues to not be affected by the sorting. Not affected, so that they can stay on top (or bottom).

            Another cool way to do this may be a separator or separators, that can be added similar to the way folders are added. Except these separators allow their content to stay where the user assigns it to.

            • Use different fonts for the levels in the hierarchy to make them more distinct

              It would be great for easier differentiation to make the font larger for higher level issues in the hierarchy. E.g.

              Level 0 - H1 Bold
              Level 1 - H2 ...
              Level 3 - H3
              etc

              • Filter the issues that aren't picked up by the generators

                To force a rebuild of the structure based on generator rules only.
                The filter would help to identify the issues manually added into the structure.
                Then we can decide which issues (all or selected) to remove from the structure if not relevant.

                Problem: We cannot remove all the issues from the structure. There's a warning when removing at least one issue that is picked up by the generators, and when we acknoledge all the issues come back.

                • Folders within epics and Epic extension automation

                  I need to track business Epics, but these are usually large and I like to break them down into smaller-sub-epics to deliver and track (via multiple releases). Jira doesn't support Epics with Epics (unbelievable really) and I need to work at ira as well as structure level so I create folders in structure under the main epic to perform this partitioning. Each Jira story is still linked to the main epic so I can use Epic reporting in main Jira, but it does mean that I can now track sub-epics at the folder level in structure too. Unfortunately this means…

                  • Allow user to make a new copy of multiple items from one structure in another structure with new keys.

                    We have several structures in place now, each with several epics (epic = enhancement for us). We need both an enhancement template and a test plan template, each having several tasks in their hierarchy, in a separate structure. For each new enhancement, we would copy the template into our structure, then edit it to be workable. So we either need the ability to copy a structure template into another structure, clone multiple issues from one structure to another, or make templates out of portions of a structure's hierarchy that we can then clone to another structure.

                      • Add a resource allocation report

                        Structure plugin is a neat way to build the projects Work Breakdown Structure (WBS).
                        It would be a nice feature to see an aggregated view of the allocated resources per structure. The MS Project resource optimization functionality is not needed from my point of view in an agile environment. However an overview of the resource capacity utilization would be nice.

                        • Connnect more than one JIRA instance

                          When working with external partners they often use their own JIRA instance. You can connect them via the JIRA application link feature with your own JIRA instance and are able to set links between issues in the two JIRA instances this way.

                          It would be great to be able to display linked issues from the remote JIRA in your own structures.

                          • support grouping of issues by link type

                            e.g. all 'Blocked By' issues added via Extend automator grouped together under parent.

                            This makes the Jira relationship between Structure parent/child issues clearer.

                            • Not override the functionality of the JIRA Create button

                              I think the decision to override JIRA's big, blue Create button in the top navigation is a mistake. And it's causing some headaches on our end. We have non-technical users who are using the Structure (with edit permissions) who aren't aware that creating a new issue will add it to the Structure they're viewing. They simply want to create an issue, not necessarily add it to their structure. We could remove the button easily, but then we'd have to have our users jump to another JIRA screen to create an issue. That's design breakage! My opinion is, leave the ubiquitous…

                              • Creating structures from agile boards with Epics and Epic-less tickets

                                When creating a structure from an Agile board it would be nice to be able to add as well Epic as stories not assigned to an Epic.

                                Creating a structure with Epics and adding an JQL-Inserter for the Epic-less Stories is not sufficient. I am not able to move Stories into an Epic later on the structure board this way. ("Cannot remove issues from JQL query result. ")

                                  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.

                                    • Search Filters Should Retain At A Structure Level

                                      If you have several structures that you are attempting to manage when you switch between them your search panel tries a filter / set of search criteria from the *previous* structure. Then you have to figure out that you want to apply filter=29121 or whatever when you go from structure A to structure B.

                                      Easy fix.

                                      • Enable you to specify a parent issue when doing "+ Add to Structure"

                                        Currently in the Issue Page you can only add the issue at the _end_ of the structure.

                                        Parent issue input could be equal to the way we Link issues in JIRA.

                                        • Show sum of time columns

                                          I would like the bottom line of the structure widget to also show the sum of remaining estimates for all (shown) issues in the structure.

                                          For example, I have a structure with issues for our next release. I would like to enter a filter like "fixVersion=<currentSprint>" to see issues assigned to the current sprint, how they are spread across overall plan, and also see the remaining estimates for the sprint.

                                          The bottom already say something like "Showing 25 issues (100 issues are not shown)", so there's quite enough space to say "Showing 25 issues (10 weeks remaining) | 100 issues…
