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

1.1 devel7329.11.200609.03.2015 Task Description

When we have several projects into flyspray, it's hard to see the project where I am when I add several tasks.
It's necessary to read the text.

To improve this, I think that it's a good idea if it's possible to add a color or an image with the logo project next to project title into web page. It will more simple to know where we are when we use flyspray.

1236User InterfaceFeature RequestLowMark Issue As Verified or UnverifiableUnconfirmed
0%
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.

1485User InterfaceFeature RequestLowAdditional extended Printview for the TasksPlanned
0%
2.013.05.200811.03.2015 Task Description

It would be useful to print a list of tasks in a extended version.
e.g. All tasks from a programmer with all the details of it.

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.

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

1.1 devel516.05.201215.10.2015 Task Description

I often used color identifiers for my Task Statuses in my old bug tracking solution, and it helped me prioritize things, like confirming unconfirmed bugs. The only thing that currently has colors, is the severity- I’d like a possibility to have (customizable) colors for Task Statuses too.

Hi,
how can I search tasks by "Reason for closing"? There is an option for searching for status but I do not want search by tasks' status but by reason for closing it. Is it possible to do it?

1857User InterfaceFeature RequestLowLogin and then submit new taskResearching
0%
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.

If I write a task and press the back button in the brower and go forward again, my expection is that the

It is frustrating losing a well thought issue editing and having it to rewrite.

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.

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

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.

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.
