Removing table on row click made it impossible to open a task’ details if you do not display the task id and summary on the task list, because now those two cells are the only clickable items to open a task, instead of the entire line being the hyperlink

1.0201.09.201810.09.2018 Task Description

I’ve set up an account with a username longer than 20 characters, but can’t reset the password because the
flyspray/index.php?do=lostpw
page username field has maxlength=”20” The maxlength for a new user registration seems to be 32 characters.

A related concern is that when setting up the default/admin user on first load of the system, I can use an email address as username (always my preference), but it’s actually not a valid username to create for others thereafter. Consider allowing ‘@’ character in usernames.

peterdd1.0-rc10320.03.202027.03.2020 Task Description

Trying to add a new user having the same email address as an another user in the do=admin&area=newuser section results in

“That username is already taken. You will need to choose another one.”

instead of

“Email address has already been taken”

(I’ve stumbled on this issue because I have an older disabled user with the same email address)

3409.04.200718.07.2016 Task Description

Currently, the Vote functionality provides users a way to say "this issue is important to me". In addition to that functionality, it would be great for users to have a "Verify" ability on open issues; it would provide users a way to say "yes, this happens to me as well".

A "Verified" label would fit nicely right under "Votes", to the right of the label would be "Yes | No", each option being a link. After clicking Yes or No, or if unable to specify (lack of permissions), the text would display "Yes - # | No - # (% verification)" where '%' is the result of ((Yes/(Yes+No))*100).

This feature should not show up on all issues, though. It does not make sense to "verify" a feature request or todo item, for example. When defining task types, the administrator would specify if a type was "Verifiable" by checking a box in a column next to "Show".

If implemented, two great, mini extra features would be:

  1. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "Yes" verifications an issue would need before it was elevated to the next priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).
  2. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "No" verifications an issue would need before it was lowered to the previous priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).

Both settings should have an option to be incremental (priority / status increased every x verifications) or not (increases once, no matter how many verifications are received); an "Incremental" checkbox would do nicely. Also, a little "Enabled" checkbox next to both settings would be clearer than having zero act as the disable mechanism.

As with voting, a permission should exist to enable or disable this option for a user group. For larger projects, moderators tasked with verifying bugs could be given the permission whereas smaller projects may leave verifications up to the community.

Lastly, a way to send a notification once the number of "Yes" verifications reached a certain value would also be a great addition.

128.12.201106.10.2015 Task Description

Hi there,

I was looking for some issue management tool for the company I work for and Flyspray turned out to be almost perfect solution. I installed it easily and it works GREAT!
As I said, this turned out to be almost perfect solution, and this is because it lacks some features that my company needs.

  • Due Date with Hour/Minute part - to choose till what time during that day should task be done (ie. 27-12-2012, 17:27)

Away with needs of my company, I believe that these features will make Flyspray very interesting and more suitable for many small/medium companies.

Best regards,

Milan Vlajnic

Any form should have its submit button directly below and to the right of the form.

122.06.201517.10.2019 Task Description

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 .. )

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?

2030User InterfaceFeature RequestLowshow votes of a user on user pageNew

12.08.201515.01.2017 Task Description

On the user page

/index.php?do=user&area=users&id=*
or
/index.php?do=user&area=users&id=*&project=1
or
/index.php?do=user&area=users&id=*&switch=1 (project switch select)

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.


2032User InterfaceFeature RequestLowreplace hardcoded ... 'ellipsis'New

Thomasz wrote:
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($task['item_summary'], 0, 55));
            if (utf8_strlen($task['item_summary']) > 55) {
                $value .= '...';
            }
            break;

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:

If a project has no versions defined yet and there are also no 'global' versions defined,
there is not need for displaying the version selects.

Same for categories. If no categories in project and no global categories then no need for displaying a cat select.

Maybe a tooltip/hint in the extended search form to inform the user that the fields were hidden for that reason.

Bugs

  • Small javascript issue: When checkbox of one users row clicked, it doesn’t select the checkbox because the row click event handler doubles the click (check and uncheck, tested with firefox41). Clicking in the row (not on the name) selects the checkbox. fixed
  • browser back button after delete of a user not working as expected. (fix it by redirect 303 , see modify.inc.php how it done for other form submits)

Missing features

  • no sorting possible of the table (like tasklist)
  • no pagination (like on tasklist) OK, probably not needed: ~2000 user registrations on bugs.flyspray.org and no problem rendering the table in browser. Archlinux has over 12k users and my test with 30k generated users showed problems handling the huge query results. So we need this!
  • no filtering of user list possible
  • no helpful information for admins like registration date and last time of login of users (last login time requires a new field in flyspray_users) implemented in Flyspray 1.0-rc7
  • no summary about users like how many exists or how many are currently online (requires storing sessions in a db session (e.g. flyspray_session) table instead php default session directory) on the install. Or a statistic graph of activity or peaks of new registrations over time.
  • maybe show user profile image too in the list.
  • choosable user field columns - partially implemented since 1.0-rc7 by selecting groups of user fields and calculated user fields: user stats, user settings

Hello,

I wanted to request a feature that will DRAMATICALLY increase the popularity and the usage of flyspray worldwide which is :

One click signup

This can be done by using existing signup solutions like openID, live.com, Google, Facebook ,twitter, Yahoo, gravatar (these are the most universal according to http://www.alexa.com/topsites)

The goal is to give a new user the possibility to sign up in less than 15 sec (and mention this in the signup page)
