  1. 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.

              • Allow "Active Sprint" option for the Work Logged field

                Currently, the options are current and prior day, week, month, year. Can we have current and prior sprint?

                • 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.

                  • Add ability to right click on selected item(s) to move to top, to bottom, down/up by like 50/100/200 rows at a time

                    This will save time in organizing one's Structure especially those items that are completed and need to be moved way down or those items that are open and need to be brought way up. This would especially be useful when initially setting up one's structure.

                    • Allow CSV Output of Information from Structure Board

                      It would be nice to have the ability to dump the structure board to a csv. Thinking that it would be something quick and dirty, with ' - ' noting structure, like this:
                      "Name", "Est Hours", "Progress"
                      "Mars Colony", "10h", "80%"
                      " - Terraform", "6h", "50%"
                      " - - Make Oxygen", "2h", "100%"
                      " - Create Colony", "4h", "0"

                      Once this was CSV, it could be manipulated in other programs. Right now, I don't see a way to get the Hierarchy or estimate roll-up data out of the system for project managers to use.

                      • Filter work log author using groups

                        We can currently use the "Work Logged" column and specify an individual user to see his or her work log.

                        It would be very useful if we could have the option to specify a group instead of a user, and see all time logged by any member of that group.

                        For clarity, we'd like this in addition to the current functionality rather than replacing what's there.

                          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.

                          • Allow importing XRay tests creating a tree of folders corresponding to a test path in the XRay test repository

                            XRay instroduced a Test Repository in v3. Now every XRay test has a field 'Repository Path' looking like: '/Test Repository/Release 1/Phase 1/AAA/'.

                            However, the Structure view is still better than XRay repository. It would be great to be able to import XRay tests recreating the same folder structure as in the XRay test repository automatically. So that users can use both XRay test repository AND Structure.

                            • Support 3+ Multi-Cascading Selects

                              Automation + Grouping on Multi-Cascading Select fields is a top-notch function that allows users to efficiently organize complex datasets, but are functionally limited to deeper organizations.

                              If I start using the Jira-system 2-tiered multi-cascading select field in Structure for my issues, but then decide I need to switch to a 3-tiered mutli-cascading select to model my data, I sacrifice the functionality of Structure for the flexibility of another add-on.

                              Including support in Structure for n+ Multi-Cascading Selects, e.g iDalko's multi-select field (using MySQL), would help users like myself fully harness the capabilities of automated issue structures

                              • 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.

                                • have a aggregation modifier #fromTopToMe #fromBottomToMe

                                  To provide a backlog forecast it is essential to show what content could be done within a certain time or time budget. If we configure the budget in a top level issues custom field, structure could SUM not only by level, but also the contents of the current list of elements (eg. by priority) and a formula could show from which element the budget is overspent.

                                  • Add progress aggregation based on the number of sub-items

                                    Parent issue progress % seems incorrect based on underlying children progress % values, assuming equal weighting per child.

                                    • Option to always include Epic Link in the Structure

                                      Same as the option to automatically include sub-tasks in the Structure, also add the option to always include the Epic Link.

                                      • 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 !

                                        • 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!
