ID Category Task Type Severity Summary Status Progress Assigned To Due In Version  desc Opened Last Edited
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.

I think it is time to think about an theme optimizied for mobile Devices.

We will not maintain several themes. We will review the current CleanFS theme to make it responsible instead.

1919Backend/CoreBug ReportLowAJAX Quick-Edit on category and task pagesPlanned

1.1 devel3109.07.201407.12.2015 Task Description

Ability to click field to edit ticket

TODO: return handler if request ok or fail.

TODO: also clicks on label should trigger show form.

Maybe the whole “click to active for editing this field” to one click too much.
So if the user has the rights to edit the value the form input or action button should be shown when viewing a task.
All other people just see the value if they have the right to view the value.

1.1 devel11.07.201406.03.2015 Task Description

When entering the wrong SMTP information and then adding a user through Multiple New Users page, the error message is bad. It just says 'this should never happen'. Instead, we need to detect that it is an SMTP authentication error and report that issue to the user more clearly.

1955Backend/CoreTODOLowCodestyleConfirmed
0%
1.1 devel307.03.201509.03.2015 Task Description

So, the new website is now online, the codestyle part is empty and I think we need to speak about them...

I can happily reformat the whole project once we have decided the whole thing. Don't forget, too strict code style leads to code style not being respected, so crap like max line length should be avoided. I personnaly don't know anybody coding from their mobile phones. I sometimes do check some code on it, but long lines never disturbed me as long as the line is not 5k chars long.

I think we should go for a standard one.

Things like:

- Do use brackets even if single lined condition
- Variable names have spaces replaced by the next words first letter in capital, start with a lower case
- Same goes for functions
- Etc etc. Pretty much of PSR-1 maybe 2

What I don't understand is the use of spaces, and I'd be for tabs instead of 4 spaces (some files use 2 spaces, some 3...). Most of the dev tools are by default set to use tabs and not spaces. And be seeing the code now we see that it clearly. So i'd be for reformatting into tabs, the whole, and same time fixing the broken identation in every files.

I could write it down for the website

1956Backend/CoreTODOLowDatesConfirmed
0%
1.1 devel307.03.201509.03.2015 Task Description

Upon my implementation for an easier date selector, I think we should rework it as follow:

  • Drop extended date concept
  • Add a Time format
  • Extended dates field become a concatenation of date format and time format.
    • The above make it easier to select your preferences
  • Rename GMT to UTC
  • Add automatic daylight saving configs
1959User InterfaceFeature RequestLowAdd vote from tasklistPlanned

1.1 devel09.03.201509.03.2015 Task Description

Well, title is self explanatory, but adding a vote button in the overview in task list whould be nice. And that backedup with an option to enable it or not in the admin panel

Idea by Wertandrew

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.

1967User InterfaceBug ReportLowKeep browser scroll position when sorting task listNew
20%
1.1 devel412.03.201519.09.2015 Task Description

When I scroll down the page to see more of the task list and then click on one of the column headings to sot by this heading, the answer page doesn't scroll down to the table.

I think there are 2 technical solutions for that:

1. set an name/id a-anchor on top of the table and on each column heading link add for example '#tasklist'.

2. add a js-sorter with complete extra search and sort ajax-backend with e.g. libs from http://datatables.net/ This requires aleso writing a server side handler for taking the ajax requests (respecting user permissions!) and is only usable if js in enabled in browser. So this second solution can only be a luxury comfort function.

1969User InterfaceFeature RequestLowsearch form with Advanced search toggle layoutNew

1.1 devel312.03.201519.09.2015 Task Description

I think the button advanced search button should not be placed right beside seach input field as full button.

Maybe a small down arrow under the simple search form with a horizontal line and a title tag as tooltip.

Any comments?

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.

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.

Edit by peterdd: Topic was discussed earlier on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/issues/130 (edit:It seems Jordan turned “issues” on github.com off in favor of bugs.flyspray.org)

The feature still exists but it is turned off until finished in a secure way. The possibility of sub and parent tasks requires many checks.

1981Backend/CoreTODOLowUnify event logging and notificationsConfirmed
0%
1.1 devel220.03.201522.03.2015 Task Description

They are currently two separate mechanisms. Shouldn't be so. Events happen always, notifications when someone should be or have chosen to be notified about those events.

Besides, the current code is just a total mess that should be fixed/rewritten anyway, and we unfortunately also overlooked during the development phase 2 things: one new table, users_emails, and the fact that the user is now allowed to give several email addresses separated by a semicolon.

1982Backend/CoreBug ReportLowdouble entries in assignees listNew
80%
1.1 devel320.03.201511.02.2016 Task Description

maybe yet fixed in 1.0 dev, but here bugs.flyspray.org my account is shown twice for selection if u edit a task.

Internally in the form also with the same id, so probably not a big problem.

I registered some years ago, maybe this year jordan(?) added me again or with another email adress? Maybe I have two addresses under on account here, which is a feature, not a bug.

But for the assignee list it should “group by user_id”.

2000User InterfaceFeature RequestLowResponsible persons column viewNew
30%
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.
2004User InterfaceBug ReportLowphp notice on unset params on reports pageNew
0%
1.1 devel218.07.201519.09.2015 Task Description

If on the reports page some get params aren't set, there are notice warnings on the report result page

like

index.php?do=reports&events[]=30

without start date,end date,result size

But it can be useful to have a bit shorter urls for sharing between authorized users instead the full params url.

Result page should use user default and project default settings fallbacks for the unset get params.

2018User InterfaceBug ReportLowreview keyboard navigationResearching
50%
1.1 devel526.07.201529.07.2019 Task Description

Keyboard navigation is not documented

At least there is no hint in the interface which keyboard shortcuts are available for fast navigation between task list and task details view.

Due to the dropping of the cookie storage for remembering last search or last selected task in favor of not interfering when multiple flyspray browser tabs are open (with e.g. different projects) ,
the caret list browsing with ‘j’,’k’,’o’ and details view isn’t useful at moment.

  1. keyboard based navigation must be documented somewhere, e.g. by providing hints (clickable icon for info or :hover ) at appropriate positions.
  2. navigation flow and technical realisation reviewed for keyboard power users

Edit: Currently handled by js event handler:

  • j move cursor down in task list
  • k move cursor up in task list
  • o open current selected task in task list
  • n next task on task details page
  • p previous task on task details page
grep -r 'accesskey' *

Current accesskeys (browserspecific + key):

  • a double usage for new task and newmultitask. Must hit [Enter] to open one of them; on newmultitask page it adds a new row.
  • e edit task on task details page
  • f copy firstline to the other rows on new multitask page
  • l show loginbox or logs you off
  • m toggle mysearchesbox
  • r reset? when dokuwiki plugin is used
  • s submit when dokuwiki plugin is used
  • w watch/unwatch task on task details page
  • n next task
  • p previous task
  • y close task
