  1. 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.

                  • Extend Sub-Task Synchronizer with JQL filter

                    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.

                    • Allow admin to set default permission scheme for new structures

                      Structure defaults to no permissions to anyone. Admins should be able to set a default permission scheme for any new structure that is created from that point on.

                      • 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!

                        • Support Wallboards

                          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?

                            • 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…

                              • 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.

                                  • Add view setting to specify level of expansion

                                    When creating or editing views, allow specifying the degree of expansion. My use case is that I want to show all issues in the top three levels by default. Furthermore, I want the expansion setting to apply to the Confluence gadget.

                                    Alternatively, a perspective can be used to achieve the same result, but there is currently no way to use a perspective for the Confluence gagget. If the perspective could be used in the gadget, then I would recommend combining with http://structure.uservoice.com/forums/43181-structure-plugin-for-jira-ideas/suggestions/1773075-add-controls-to-expand-contract-one-level-at-a-t to allow an unlimited customization of gadget presentations.

                                    • Display a collated view of multiple structures

                                      As a release manager, I want to see multiple structures represented in one view so I can easily collate the work multiple teams are doing. Our planning and management of structures is distributed, but I need to be able to see them all for enterprise planning purposes. Additionally, I want to be able to filter the one "master" view so I can see only those items related to specific criteria (e.g. release or project or component).

                                      • Allow to see the structure in the issue type 'Test'

                                        When viewing an issue of type “Test”, created by Zephyr and assigned to a Structure, we are not able to see the corresponding Structure section as expected. If we change the type of the issue to anything else (Bug, Story, Epic, etc.) then the Structure section becomes visible. It seems that either Structure or Zephyr is not playing well together. This is critical to our organization as we try to integrate structured testing into our organization.

                                        • Keep backlog always up-to-date with notifications

                                          I think it would be nice to have possibility to notify Scrum Master and Product Owner that some of UserStories are holding in a backlog for quite a long period of time (could be specified in extra settings), for example 3 moths.
                                          It should help to keep backlog always with actual UserStories.
