  1. Report or filter on accumulated fields

    FIelds like 'progress', 'estimate' or 'logged' are calculated (accumulated) over the sub-structure under the issue. I would like to be able to report those values in reports (e.g. accumulated estimate) or use them in JQL queries (e.g. accumulated_estimate > 2w)

    • Subscription to a structure view

      Jira has a "issue filter subscription" feature, which runs a filter at a certain time of the day and email the user with the results. Structure could have a similar subscription feature tied to a particular structure's view, where a snapshot of that view would be taken at a certain time of the email and the results would be exported to excel and emailed to the user.

      My company currently use structure to keep track of our day-to-day progress by manually exporting structures to excel at the same time each day. Automating the exporting would allow us to automate the…

      • Add a custom field on child issues to show the structures root element

        I would like to see the root element in the structure in the custom fields of the children so I can use this when exporting data from jira

          • Automatically create issues to represent structures

            Allow structures to have attachments, comments, workflow, etc by creating an issue for each existing structure. This could be automated by the Structure plugin.

            Let the administrator configure a special project / issue type for those issues.

            • Have a Back to Structure button in Issues

              When you open the Issue to view/edit the full details, a link back to the full structure would be nice

              • Propagate Due Date

                Allow users to set due date based on due date of parent and estimated time. Plus when due date of parent is changed propagate change to all child issues accordingly

                • Support entering data into mandatory fields on SubIssue creation

                  when you are creating a sub issue you might hit a wall when the creation of the issue have some mandatory fields which needs to be filled out.first.
                  it should be possible to enter data during sub issue creation.
                  it is already shown which fields that need to field out.

                  • Show more results to allow me to use the browsers scroll function.

                    The view port of the structure plugin is rather small. I can only see a max of 12 rows on my screen (1360x768). I need to export to excell to see more stories in my epic. It would be nice if more results are displayed on the screen. And to be able to use the browser's scroll bar to scroll, that's why it's there. Or did I miss a config option?

                    • Link issues in a hierarchy as you move issues around in the Structure view

                      Currently, when you clone a subtask and move it to another parent issue, it actually remains (for all intents and purposes of JIRA data) as part of the original parents issue.

                      This is a problem, because in Greenhopper on the planning board (where you move User Stories to actual date defined releases), they have to reflect the same structure as you created in Structure.

                      • Keep carriage returns during Excel export or be able to save off the Printable Page.

                        We added 2 custom fields for testing steps. The carriage returns show up in Printable Page nicely. But we can just print that. The Excel export doesn't keep them and so the steps are jumbled in each cell instead of a clean representation.

                        • 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…

                          • 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. ")

                            • Sync task to add Tasks to Folders

                              Folders is a great new feature in 3.0 (long awaited) but the sync tasks do not allow tasks to be added to folders which is an obvious feature for auto adding tasks to structure and also a huge use of ordering and sorting tasks in structure.

                                The Sub-Tasks Synchronizer only allows to select the Issue-Type to be selected. It would be helpful to have a JQL field to filter out more and also to have a JQL field when a Sub-Task should be removed from the Structure.

                                  • 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!

                                      I would like the ability to use Structure gadgets also on wallboards. Technically you can already do that, but for example progress bars are not visible. I suppose this only requires a separate stylesheet?

                                      • 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

                                        • Add link to documentation and resources from toolbar drop down menu

                                          I'm the admin and know of and installed structure, however, my JIRA users don't know what it is or how to use it. To help educate all please include links to helpful resources in your toolbar drop down such as documentation, etc.

                                          Thank you
