1782Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowCustom fields on taskPlanned
0%
2.030327.11.201228.04.2016 Task Description

A very useful feature would be to be able to manage a list of custom fields by project, and to be able to add and fill any of these fields to any task.
So we could be able to search on the presence and content of a field.
We could be able to sort the tasks by this field when they are displayed in a list.

A use example is when you create a bug by reference to another external list. It can be very useful to have a field that references a line in the external list.

Add a system where people can donate towards a specific task. For example, I want to donate $10 if someone implements gravatars. The money sits in a pool, and then when someone claims that task and it is marked as completed by the admin, they get the bounty (less some commission that goes towards the project).

1836Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowNeed permission option to view only own tasksPlanned
80%
1.1 devel727.02.201322.04.2015 Task Description

In global permissions there is 'View tasks'. This makes it so a user can view all tasks. Need a way instead that they can view only their own tasks, for example a permission called 'View own tasks'.

If 'View own tasks' is checked for a user, in the project list we should only show projects which contain tickets that that user is a part of. Within a given project we should then only show tickets that the user is a part of if they have that permission set.

So for example if 'View tasks' is set, show user all tasks. 'View tasks' is not set, but 'View own tasks' is set then show them only their own tasks and projects.

2.0127.03.201306.03.2015 Task Description

Hello,
when I wanted to use Flyspray to manage request from non-technical customer, I found one missing feature:

I have "report a problem" link on devel version of web site. But to submit new task, it is necessary to login into Flyspray.

It would be nice if there was an URL with login form if user is not logged in and "add new task" form if he is logged in.

Example scenario:
- Customer visits devel site after some time and finds some problem. He wants to report it.
- Customer clicks "report a problem" on the devel site and Flyspray is opened.
- Customer now see some wierd error message and has no idea what is wrong. If anonymous reports are allowed, he sees the form, but cannot upload screenshots and he must enter his e-mail address.

How it should be:
- Customer visits devel site after some time and finds some problem. He wants to report it.
- Customer clicks "report a problem" on the devel site and Flyspray is opened.
- Customer sees login form and (if anonymous reports are allowed) there is also "add new task" form below the login form.
- Customer clicks "login" (password is saved in browser).
- Customer now can fill report with all the comfort.

1858Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowClone Tasks and ProjectsMaybe

2.0102.04.201315.09.2017 Task Description

My workplace is piloting Flyspray for an internal project and one feature that my boss was asking about was the ability to clone tasks and projects.

We have reoccurring simultaneous projects that contain a large number of testing tasks, and tasks dependent on other tasks, which makes starting up a new project very tedious. If it was possible to clone the contents of a task, or an entire project, we could create template tasks/projects that would really speed up the workflow.

11.03.201511.03.2015 Task Description

This is a parent task for all small helping or explaining tooltips that can be maybe added where approriate.

Many people don't like reading external documentations, which sometimes often is also not up to date with the current used version.

If you are doing something in Flyspray and you don't know exactly how it works or have to be done rigth and you must look at documentation, it breaks your workflow.

The best case is if its all perfect intuitive and you don't have to read any help texts. But in the case of more complex operations or things that do many things behind the scene a helping tooltip or explanation can give you a mental map and more trust into what the tool is doing.

1966User InterfaceFeature RequestLowMy votes on myprofileNew
80%
1.1 devel11.03.201503.11.2015 Task Description
  • On the myprofile page have a section to show all my votes I put on tasks. done!
  • Add the possibility to remove own votes from tasks. done!
  • Implement a limitation of the amount of votes a user can put on tasks for a project. Can be enabled/disabled and amount configured. Done!
  • project based vote limitation
  • When a task is finished/closed, remove the user votes from the task and make that vote again available to the user. Maybe safe the existing historic voting count in an extra field of the task as the votes would drop to 0 on closing the task. removed.

We keep the votes, because a task can be reopened everytime and then the old voters and votes should be visible again. In this case the amount of votes on active task could be a bit greater than allowed, but thats no real problem.
The calculation of done votes and available votes based only on open task and project voting limit.

For example on uservoice.com you have 10 voting points. So you as user has to decide where your priorities are to put your votes.

So all users have more or less the same power to vote for tasks.

1970User InterfaceFeature RequestLowIcons for predefined task typesNew
20%
1.1 devel112.03.201530.10.2015 Task Description

for toplevel, roadmap and task list view.

For roadmap: replace the current ‘-’ between the task id and task summary with icons.

For toplevel: most wanted tasks and assigned to myself

<style>
ul.tasks li {clear:left;}
li.tid:before{
content: "\code";
font-family: FontAwesome;
float:left;
margin-left:-12px;
}
</style>

On task list the column text can be replaced by icons, moving the text to title attribute.

Maybe use css :content-before or :content-after for that.

I suggest following font-icons from fontawesome are the easiest way to implement:

  • Bug Report use fa-bug , red color
  • Feature Request use fa-star , yellow
  • TODO a bold T, blue ( or blue fa-check?, but check mark maybe too ambiguous)

Gain: you faster see what types of task are on roadmap milestones and task list exists.

1971Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowa field like challenge level or doom levelNew

We have severity field.
We have priority field.
We have estimated effort field.

But we don't have a fíeld to see how hard a task is to solve. Something like in doom 3d shooter a face from normal/easy to angry/bloody/very hard.

Imaging you have some people in a company, some base educated, some high educated, some are experts in their field, some do repeating easy tasks.

By adding the ability to set a 'doom level' on tasks this can complete the view over a project in addition to severity,priority,effort.

Task properties

Current situation

  • Currently 8 multi select fields with height of 5.5 visible options.
  • For most of the selects you must scroll to make the right selections.
  • floating

Ideas

Multi select option styling

Some (not all, intentional!) browsers support CSS styling of option tags. For these who support it I think option styling is a good usability enhancement:

  • severity: We use background colors for styling in task list, so we should use the same colors for the select.
  • priority: maybe, but must be good distinguishable from severity styling. maybe not background, but maybe icons,borders,lines?
  • task type: This styling would be related to an other task, where I suggest icons/font icons for bugs, feature requests and TODO (see also themes/CleanFS/custom_example.css)
  • progress: maybe use the green %-bars as background styling
  • status: If for some status types very intuitive icons exists, they could be used for the options too.
  • due version: no idea yet, no option styling
  • reported version: no idea yet, no option styling

Update: CSS of option tags working in multi selects:

  • Firefox 64: yes
  • Safari 12: no
  • Google Chrome 71: no

So only Firefox. The intended styling could be also achieved by Javascript that renders alternative select boxes based on reading the original select boxes and their option attributes and show the user CSS styled div-tag or li-tag based constructs which do not have such restrictions.

Custom fields

  • challenge/doom level - doom faces: from easy/normal to bloody/angry face
  • os: logos like tux for linux, devil for bsd, window for ms, apple icon, osX icon, android, apple, iphone/smartphone icon, ipad/tablet icon, ..

But Consider: Different project may need different custom fields. Your gardening project may need no OS version selector.

  1. Make some intelligent positioning and sizing dependent on the count of options of the selects.

1.1 devel122.06.201509.09.2015 Task Description

In the task list the responsible persons are shown as "first person name, +n" where n are the count of further responsible persons.

I think this can be done a bit better.

Ideas:

  • show as it is now, but on css :hover show all persons
  • use initials like "CR FS JM" for Cristian R., Florian S., Jordan M. and on css :hover show a list with the full names, this can make the column width a bit smaller.
  • use tiny avatar icons in a row like you can see here https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/blob/master/header.php for example, and showing the names on css :hover.

When adding peoples with the autocompleter the name itself is not always enough, especially with a growing number of registered users.

We now have the avatar icon as helper, but for quick verification it would be easier to see also the role of the user in the current project to identify the right user account.

( The red rectangle at peterdd autocomplete row is from a broken avatar upload, ignore it for this task, see  FS#1979  instead .. )

To add or modify stuff in the current tab sections (comments, related tasks, notifications, effort tracking,..)
a user must go from edit task to view task page.

To solve this quite much changes are needed. Because currently they are different http requests each with its own checks and request anwsers.

2013User InterfaceFeature RequestLowpersonal task list column selection and positioningNew
0%
2.0120.07.201506.10.2015 Task Description

Currently the appearence of the task list table is configured system wide for all project view and project wide for project task list views.

Even more fancy and for power users would be if the user can set his own project column list view preferences for projects.

While the project columns for the task list are configured by "visible_columns"
we could use the project wide "visible_fields" as allowed columns the user may configure as his personal preference. If the user doesn't configure his own list, the project default list is used. The user should have the option to reset to project default. (e.g. empty personal "visible_fields" )

In this case the description for setting "visible_fields" on the project management configuration page must be adapted too.

Probably a new table required something like:

CREATE TABLE {user_projects} (
user_id int,
project_id,
columns varchar(255) DEFAULT '',
);

or

CREATE TABLE {user_projects} (
user_id int,

2023NotificationsFeature RequestLowInform users if reminder is disabled in system settingsNew
0%
04.08.201504.08.2015 Task Description

There are 5 possible cases that IMHO should be handled more user friendly:

  1. There is no cronjob for the reminder (schedule.php) setup → Reminders are never sent
  2. Reminding is disabled in the global settings → Reminders are never sent
  3. Reminder setting 'email' only → Reminders are only sent to users who set their notification setting to 'email' or 'both' and setup an email address
  4. Reminder setting 'jabber' only → Reminders are only sent to users who set their notification setting to 'jabber' or 'both' and setup a jabber address
  5. Project notification setting not set → ??? (research...)
  • If notification is disabled (1. or 2.), the notification tab on 'task details page' should adapt to that I think. (by css style or message or tooltip)
  • If notification is restricted to only one notification channel, the current user should be informed on notification tab on 'task details page' if he would receive notifications with his current notification settings.

109.08.201509.08.2015 Task Description

The Flyspray Manual ( http://www.flyspray.org/manual/ ) does not even hint of it, and as long as i am not logged in there's no indication anywhere in the interface that i would eventually get to do it after i manage to log-in.

In fact, i've come here to learn how to use your software, considering the fact that the site where it was deployed did not provide much help. And after i logged in into that site ( http://www.uzbl.org/bugs/ ) i still don't see any "add new task" option. That's IMO a discover-ability fail, and it originates in your own design: disabled features should not be hidden, lest users think you didn't bother to code such features. Also, you say i shouldn't report bugs against versions earlier than 0.9.9.7, but how do i know which version of Flyspray are they using?

an info could be shown how many votes a user has given.

Maybe show the tasks on mouse hover (:hover) if permission to view them exists.

Needs to be considered:

  • Show count only for current project or all projects? (project param is optional on user page)
  • counts of hidden, closed or restricted projects (user permission)
  • How to handle votes of private tasks?
  • Show votes of closed tasks too? (votes on closed tasks should don’t count for max votes per project)
  • When personal “max votes per project” (open tasks) is active, this is of more value.

The other thing that I cannot find how to make the text to be visible in the whole column (as with the summary I get the ... at some point of the text).

The root of this is found in scripts/index.php in function tpl_draw_cell():

case 'summary':
            $value = tpl_tasklink($task, utf8_substr($task['item_summary'], 0, 55));

We live in a world now, where the view port ranges from 320 pixel width mobile screens up to 4k+ wide tv screens, the amount of columns is configurable from minimal to all available fields of a task. We currently let the browser automatic decide how wide he renders each column depending on table content and available window size.

Well, that ellipsis problem can be handled at different levels:

  • motivate the task creators to use short task summary if possible (e.g. show a hint/tooltip when typing the summary gets over a limit, in our case the hardcoded limit is 55. ). Short task topic/summaries are easier to read/scan for the users.
  • replace the hard ellipsis by a pure css solution, that adapts to users browserwindow size/space in in the columns for summary
  • drop the ellipsis thing complete, task summary always shown full length, table rows adapt in height automatically.

Possible CSS solution:
