26.08.201626.08.2016 Task Description

The user preferences and the add new user screens both allow you to set the timezone offset of the user, however, we are only provided with whole hour offsets from GMT. This makes it impossible to select our timezone here in India, which is GMT+5:30 - IST(Indian Standard Time - Asia/Kolkata as per TZ Zoneinfo). In addition, there are also timezones in the GMT+x:45, which wouild also require to be handled. Note, this is totally independent of DST Changes, since some of the countries use DST(Like in Australia) and others do not(Like India).

Here is a link with more details of the same - http://www.timeanddate.com/time/time-zones-interesting.html

I will be trying to identify and fix the codebase to resolve this, and will hopefully have a patch to submit soon.

227.10.201610.02.2021 Task Description

The register spam by probably bots in 2016 is annoying.

I ticked the setting, that an admin must accept a new registration. It helps to reduce spam task, but now admin must decide if the registrations are ok or just spam bots.

Beside the need of antispam-plugins, the management of users can be improved:

  • column sorting of user list, similiar to the tasklist
  • filtering user list, similiar to the tasklist
  • pagination of user list (25,50,100,200,all?)
  • more columns:
    • last login implemented
    • last activity (a resulting task/comment/project change in database)
    • tasks created implemented
    • comments created implemented
    • votes implemented

that may help to decide what status or settings a user should have in future.

  • show time zone setting and language setting of users implemented in userlist now
  • mass accept/deny of a list of user registrations waiting for admin approval.
2635User InterfaceFeature RequestMediumimprove usability of add/remove tags to/from tasksPlanned
70%
1.013.04.202123.04.2021 Task Description

Integrate the selectpure javascript to the new task and edit task form.

By default there is a text field where tag names are separated by ‘;’ character.

Selectpure could instead show the tags with their visual layout with a little ‘x’ inside on the right side for removing a tag and autocomplete when typing a tag name to show existing tags from the flyspray_list_tag-table as possible selections.

Instead implemented a CSS and raw javascript solution with a single taghelper.js without any dependancies.

A button beside the tag input text field toggles a list of available tags for the current task, depending on the project and settings.

Still TODO

  • styling of added tags
  • highlight tags that would be removed when the task will be saved.
  • highlight tags that would be added when the task will be saved.
  • highlight tags that are attached to the task in the available taglist.
  • highlight tags that are added to the task in the available taglist.
  • optimize layout for this feature.

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.

625.10.201626.10.2016 Task Description

I use Flyspray as a closed system with all projects set to private. I use it as a main means of communication with my clients. In such a case it would be a good idea for visitors to see a home screen (preferably a blank/splash screen with login option only) and definitely not the All tasks title or project names ( FS#2302 ) or taskid search.

1.1 devel23.07.201523.07.2015 Task Description

We should change the document logic a bit here. For public projects search engines like well structured pages more then others. And we get a consistent structure too in future for Flyspray.

This I have in mind

Project area name ("All Projects" or "Project name")

  • Currently: h1-tag
  • My wish: not a h1-tag anymore here

Admin setting / Project setting pages, title of the sub pages

  • Currently: h3-tag!
  • My wish: h1 tag

Section names in these pages

  • Currently: h4-tags
  • My wish: h2 tags, subsubs then h3,...

Task view page

Task name=summary

  • Currently: h2 tag
  • My wish: h1 tag

Task descriptions then can use structuring their task description starting as h2,h3,h4 (done by dokuwiki renderer for example)

Toplevel project overview /dashboard

  • Currently: h2 for each project name
  • My wish:
  • * keep h2 for each project name
  • * h1 for the page heading (maybe hidden by css)

New Task page

  • Currently: h2 for summary and tags. Wrong logical nesting!
  • My wish: drop the h2 for form field labels

Reports page

  • Currently: h3 tag
  • My wish: h1 tag

Roadmap page

  • Currently: h3 tag for each milestone
  • My wish:
  • * h2 tag for each milestone,
  • * h1 tag for heading (maybe hidden by css)

MyProfile page

  • Currently: h3 tag for each section
  • My wish:
  • * h2 tag for each section
  • *h1 tag for heading (maybe hidden by css)

(Sure the theme.css must be adapted to this change.)

2610User InterfaceFeature RequestLowEffort pop-up timerNew
20%
207.05.202024.08.2020 Task Description

It would be terrific to have a small pop-up window that appears when you click to start tracking of an item. In the window could be:

  • the task name
  • a timer
  • a button to close the timer pop-up and jump to the effort tracking screen, or even to stop the effort timer in FlySpray if possible.

This would help tremendously to remind a developer that he has one or more timers going in FlySpray.

If multiple timers are started, there could be multiple timer windows, each identified by the task name showing as part of the window (title bar or some text near the timer).

2.0118.07.201507.08.2016 Task Description

Currently only a small portion of adjustements on a task is available in the “edit task” view.

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.

This not optimal for work flow.

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

07.08.201608.08.2016 Task Description

If someone with ‘edit comment’-permission wants to edit a comment, the edit comment form is shown on an extra page.

This is not optimal, because the editor cannot see task details or the other comments while modifying the comment.

Possible Solutions

  • with javascript is enabled: Stay on the ‘task detail’-page, just the comment changes from a ‘view’ layout to ‘edit’ layout, similiar to the quickedit-feature (like in FS1.0).
  • when javascript is disabled: The ‘edit comment’-page shows task details (check permissions) and other comments too, but maybe a bit narrow, so ‘visible focus’ is on editing the comment.

2577User InterfaceFeature RequestVery Lowdistinguish between anonymous reporter and deleted userNew
0%
18.10.201918.10.2019 Task Description

When a user is deleted from Flyspray, their opened tasks, closed task and task comments are then shown as Anonymous Submitter, the same way as anonymous reporters (not really anonymous, just that user does not have login account, but usually their email address is stored within that task data).

Currently just the entry from users table are deleted when a user is deleted. Their internal user_id integer is still within tasks and comments fields, and maybe some other tables too. So there is not a ON DELETE SET NULL rule or something like that applied. As it is just an autoincremented number by the system, this is not personal data imho and should be no problem for GDPR, but gives Flyspray the ability to distinguish between anon reporters and deleted users. Well, we could also look if there is an email address within task table entry for notification of anonymous reporter, but there are also tasks possible that have no user_id nor an email address.

It might by useful to present that information differently like deleted user or showing the info differently like icon + title-tooltip with explanation.

Also interesting what happens with mentions of a deleted username in a comment or task description. (see FS#2322)

The user isn’t in database, but deleting that now gone user should not modify tasks or comment where that username was mentioned I think.
But what if another user registers under that now gone username? In that case that new user would inherit that mentions. Probably we can ignore that edge case as there will be not much things will happen with an old mention in old tasks/comments.

2317User InterfaceBug ReportMediumDate format wrongConfirmed

1.1 devel122.11.201622.11.2016 Task Description

In some parts of the world (primarily the US), the date is viewed as Month/Day/Year. However, all options in the current rc4 build are listed as Day/Month/Year aside from one, which goes ShortWrittenMonth/Day#/Year#.

This is poor from a customer perspective, and can be highly confusing. I can change the date globally to a correct format in the database, but this doesn’t help much as every user can select their own date which has all incorrect formats.

1491User InterfaceFeature RequestLowCustom task table columns for individual usersUnconfirmed
0%
2.0301.07.200801.10.2015 Task Description

Allow individual users to define custom views of the task tables much like the project manager can for the entire project; only on a user scale.

An option for the user to "use default" project settings should be possible and should be the default.
Only pro users will change it to their needs, not the average reporter.

Interesting would be the possibility to change it dynamic on the tasklist view, not only on the myprofile setting page.

Open Question: Simple or complex implementation?

  • Simple: A new varchar field for the user table like it is in the project table and provide the same field chooser like on project setting page.
  • Complex: User settings for global tasklist view and each project. Needs extra 'project_user' (or 'user_project' ;-) ) join table. Well, maybe over engineered.

Mockups required not only for different sizes, but also different project configurations, user permissions, and task relations.

Should look ok whatever project configuration is done or how weird a task description is.

On wider screens the comments could be beside the task description for instance.
Or some tabs or menus could be shown directly instead of grouping in the tabs.

1.0516.03.201512.10.2015 Task Description

Due to the needed implementation of an anti csrf system into Flyspray 1.0,
this are a side effect issues we need to address:

Due the required replacement of action links to form buttons:

  • The user cannot just see anymore the target url of the action by hovering over the link. We can compensate that in the simpliest case by using the title-tag as additional info to the user. Trust not full reestabilished that way, but better than nothing and user has fear to click a form button.

Javascriptless CSS3-toggles:

  • Some clickable labels don’t show pointer icon when :hover. CSS issue, easy fix.

1.1 devel5317.08.200601.10.2015 Task Description

We don't close the tasks until the release is "made", that is we let them under "Requires Testing" with 100% complete. When the release/testing cycle is finished, somebody has to go task by task, and start closing them... it's a PITA ;)
It would be nice to have to option to select all the tasks you want to close, and that the "popup" when you enter the reason/etc, applied to all the tasks I selected...

I recall reading something about this in the past, but haven't found it; and if this is implemented, I haven't seen a way to do it in 099beta1

0%
118.09.201802.11.2018 Task Description

The issue with many servers now and the reason that recaptcha does not work is because it requires servers to enable allow_url_fopen which is a huge security risk. That is why you get the warning message when you try to run recaptcha that file_get_contents failed to connect.

So the solution is to use Curl to do that job.

Here is the fixed file, excuse my mess i had not cleaned up my code yet... but recaptcha now works.

this file goes in the includes dir... you can clean up the file if you like again sorry about that.

From the ‘Task Statuses’ menu, when in the global project, the ‘delete’ cases are grayed out, preventing me from deleting them.

This is a problem for me because I would like to only have project specific statuses and I would like to name one of those statuses ‘Assigned’.

For now, I got around it renaming the system wide ‘Assigned’ status.
