116.02.201803.03.2018 Task Description

It would be great if the Admin Toolbox had an attachments section with an on/off switch, a max size setting, and it would print out all the reasons why it can’t set it to your desired value.

This would help in situations like  FS#2458 , it would be more clear if there is a setting to turn on/off attachments instead of turning them on and off by setting the rights if the attachments folder.

This way if the attachments setting is On, the GUI could also print an error “Attachments folder must be writable” when it detects that the writable attribute does not match the desired setting.

Layouts from 320 pixel mobile portrait, tablet sizes and up to 4k monitor landscape mode using

@media queries

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.

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.

2581User InterfaceFeature RequestLowreplace bitmap icons of default themeNew
0%
31.10.201907.12.2019 Task Description

I played with adding a dark mode color theme to the default CleanFS theme.

To make the dark theme just simple exchange some colors, the bitmap icons should be replaced with alternatives.

Easiest would be using the fontawesome font icons as Flyspray still uses them and they can simply get a css color assigned.

Examples

  • caret of tasklist
  • the ‘select all’ icon of tasklist, but also used at some more locations.
  • some icons in the Flyspray main toolbar (Overview, Tasklist, Event log, ..)
  • the black calendar icons for date selects
  • maybe the file type icons for attachments

Editors

  • Dokuwiki toolbar
  • CKEditor: some modern CKEditor themes support color/dark mode, I will probably choose the moona-lisa theme as default.

It would be nice to have a description field to put a brief note about the work done for a given effort item. This would help when using effort tracking for the purpose of making invoices to a client.

2610User InterfaceFeature RequestLowEffort pop-up timerUnconfirmed
0%
07.05.202007.05.2020 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).

There should be some help at the configuration sections for setting up jabber/xmpp notifications.

How someone can test it?

Must the admin setup his own jabber/xmpp server or are there recommended servers?

I registered with psi+ instant messager as peterdd@ubuntu-jabber.de at ubuntu-jabber.de for testing
and configured it here in my account too, but got no jabber messages.

Email notifications works and I set up both sending.

The flyspray admin users should be able to test their jabber/xmpp configuration, check if sending jabber notification is working and if not, give useful error messages back, so the user is able to fix the configuration.

2214Backend/CoreInformationLowChanging status of task automaticallyUnconfirmed

417.10.201606.11.2016 Task Description

Hello again,

I was wondering (again :-) ) if the following scenario is possible for this bug tracking solution:

Our company uses this bug tracker mainly for helpdesk issues. However, our main users (except IT department) don’t seem to easily understand how to change the status of a ticket, they aren’t interested in doing that also.

So I would like to know if there is a way that we can develop some automatisation in changing the status automatically after customer replies to a message.

Let’s see the following scenario:

  1. user A posts a new task
  2. user B assigns himself (or other) to that specific task - the status automatically is changed to Assigned
  3. user B replies to task by adding a comment - as a result of adding the new comment the task status should change automatically to Waiting for customer - without the need that user B to change the status
  4. user A checks the comment from user B and decides to comment back to him. After pressing the Add comment button, the status should change automatically to Waiting for assignee

If the task is needed to have another status, the users can change them manually, but the automated part should be the waiting for customer and assignee.

On a basic algorithm it shouldn’t be hard (if user is logged in and is task owner, then after comment, task detail - status changing to id 4-5 from task-statuses table on mysql; if user is logged in and assigned to task, after adding comment change status 4-5 from task-statuses table).

I saw this thing on an otrs platform and it is quite ok for a simple user like ours.

Is there any way that we can personalise the flyspray in this way?

If yes, please give us an elaborate answer with what I should do for this to work.

Thanks in advance.

109.03.201720.03.2017 Task Description

Hey peterdd,

I was wondering: is there a standard URL for “My tasks”? I have an internal website and I would like to create a menu with a few submenus (Add task and My tasks) that link to FlySpray. However if I place the URL for My Tasks (being logged in with my user account), and copy this link to the menu, all others that click the submenu My Tasks, are seeing the tasks that where opened by me or where I am assigned, not that user that is connected on Flyspray with his account on his PC.

So that’s why I am asking for a generic URL of My Tasks, so I can place it on this middle-site?

Thanks

1303.06.201802.12.2018 Task Description

I have changed the htaccess.dist into .htaccess and modified to force https.
However, despite having https activated on my site I cannot get Flyspray running, it’s waiting forever.When I abort I get a page without makeup. I have all other applications like cms and wiki running under https, so it is something I have not done in the flyspray configs obviously (as this site is running https too). But could you give me a hint?

I installed flyspray in a subdirectory, if that is something to know about...

the old php mysql extension is long ago reached its demise, why bother supporting it?

I also see in the database connector that your supporting MySQL/PDO - why not settle on that? If the queries aren’t MySQL specific, it becomes easier to support other DB’s, etc.
