  1. 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.

    • Show live Gantt chart

      The Structure Board could display Gantt chart instead of the aggregate progress.

      However, this may need for additional data to be recorded for each issue (work logs may be not enough).

      Also it would require a wide screen for effective use.

      • Limit the issuetypes for automators so you can use multiple link automators per structure

        With Synchronizers it is possible to limit the issuetypes. Therefore it is possible to have multiple link synchronizers for different issuetypes.

        Example:
        one could defined a parent/child link between epics and features and use a is blocked link between features and bugs. with automators this scenario can not be implemented at the moment.

        • allow me to define a story point budget for a folder / issue

          I typically have rough estimates for bigger projects and I would like to be able to add them to the structure so that I can get an overview of what needs to be done. At the moment I can only do this by adding JIRA issues with estimates, but the problem is that at this stage I do not really want to create these issues yet (at least not for everything).

          The closes thing to what I want is to create epics and set the rough estimates on the epics. Later I can refine my estimates by creating storys. The…

          • Change the colors of the font or/and background of the Structure folders

            It would be great to be able to customize the appearance of the Structure Folders in order to have a possibility of manual highlighting the "problematic" folders.

            • 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?

              • Show progress of selected issue/task in Confluence

                In our company we use very closely JIRA and Confluence. Structure allows us to properly organize issues based on our demands and workflows and it works perfectly for people who are assigning tasks or implementing them. But we use Confluence for executive summary of progress on specific builds where would be very helpful if we can display progress bar of a specific issue (counted from all issues below of selected issue in the hierarchy). This way we would be able to create great overviews like e.g. "Bug fixing of Feature1", "Implementing Feature2", ... with progress bars behind without a need…

                • With Structure 3.x, it would be nice to be able to minimize the Header Tool Bar to give more real estate to the Structure

                  With Structure 3.x, there's too much space in the header now leaving almost half the screen for the Structure. It would be nice to be able to minimize the header tool bar like JIRA Agile allows.

                  Also, it would be good to minimize the Transformations tool bar with the quick filters selected still active. Currently, you have to click X to the right of the Transformations tool bar which deselects the highlighted transformations.

                  • improve support for Quick Transformations

                    Currently you can save transformations as quick transformations which is a great feature. I see however certain potential to make it even better:

                    - Combine several transformations into a single Quick Transformation (e.g. filtering and grouping)
                    - Define Quick Transformations for the "Jira" part of the double grid: I often look for items assigned to a version in order to add them to my structure. It would be super convenient if I could save it as a Quick Transformation.

                    Thanks for your consideration and keep up the great work!

                    • Limit parent-child relationship to specific types of issues

                      Let JIRA admin specify what issue types could contain what other issue types. For example, a Test Suite may contain Test Cases, which can contain other Test Cases, but not Feature Requests.

                      • Be able to Receive a notification when an item is manually added to a structure folder and/or it's sub-folders

                        Be able to Receive a notification when an item is manually added to a structure folder and/or it's sub-folders. That way when someone adds an item or removes one to an existing structure folder, anyone subscribed to notifications for that folder would get an email notification. to implement, just add a button to the button bar when the folder is selected and when you click the button, you get a popup with an option to subscribe to notifications like you do with issues in JIRA.

                        Obviously, this would only be available for folders WITHOUT automation.

                          • Allow an attachments column with attachments preview, similar to the Images column

                            The structure view should allow the user to display "attachments" as a column, where attachments are listed similarly to the "Images" column. Clicking on an attachment thumbnail would popup a preview of the attachment.

                            At the very least it should allow the user to download the file without opening the ticket itself.

                              • Reinstate search on the issue page

                                In Structure 3, search and filtering functionality was removed from the issue page. But sometimes we need that to rearrange structure without leaving a specific issue.

                                More feedback:

                                But with the loss of the toolbar we can no longer filter or search the structure from the issue view.

                                We frequently need to unpin, search then re-org the structure, and we like to do it from the issue view. At my work we are considering rolling back to 2.x to get the search/filter feature back on the issue view.

                                • 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.

                                    When beeing displayed in the issue viewer and the default structure name should be "None" to avoid confusion as another structure name makes it seem to belong to one.

                                    • Allow users of the Tempo Plugin to see a per-user summation of time usage

                                      We always have multiple coders on our projects, and almost always have multiple coders contributing to each piece of functionality within a project. We use the Tempo Plugin for JIRA to keep all that straight.

                                      Structure's time summations are really helpful and beneficial. But for our multi-coder environment, we have to look at that summation in Structure, then look at every subtask and split out exactly who contributed how much to the Structure main task, because different coders are at different billing rates. This is not workable except on very small projects.

                                      What would be ideal is if we could…

                                        Let the user specify, for example, that all sub-issues of the issue X should have the same Security Level and Project and Priority.

                                        • Improve the administration (Synchronization Settings) for structures with many syncronizers

                                          We have structures with many syncronizations and have had some problems maintaining them:

                                          1. Fast way of resyncronize ALL syncronization rules for the structure
                                          - In some cases the syncronizations needs to be "Resync"ed.
                                          We have found that for example when a filter syncronizer refer via a 'filter' it doesn't take effect when we change the refered filter. After a forced Resync it works.
                                          Example
                                          JQL query: (project = DEVENVC2JIRA or label = Jira) and filter = "DEVENVC2 - Next month" and status = Assigned
                                          In this case, when we change the "next month", we need to resync. To do…
