2127User InterfaceFeature RequestLowoverhaul task detail page layoutNew

120.05.201625.05.2016 Task Description

There was a question on the mailing list:

I have a suggestion, even though I don´t know if it´s possible to do it. But if it is, it would be great!
In the comments list of a given task, is it possible that the comments appear from the newest one to the oldest ones, and not as it is now, with the new ones coming at the end of the list? This is because I deal with long comments list for a given task, and it is becoming difficult to reach the last one, that is, the newest comment, because the order in the comments is on the top, the older ones. If this could be altered it would be great. Kind regards
Ana ...

Quick anwsers:

  1. Users can use ‘End’-key and ‘Pos1’-key on their keyboard to scroll to bottom and top of page. (lame anwser I know)
  2. Another quick anwser is to just reverse the comments array in the appropriate template themes/CleanFS/templates/details.tabs.comments.tpl :

Replace

<?php foreach($comments as $comment): ?>

with

<?php
$comments_latestfirst=array_reverse($comments);
foreach($comments_latestfirst as $comment): ?>

But the real problem I think is that the details page (and others too..) is not optimized for todays wide screens (landscape views). Laptops have FullHD or higher but the Flyspray users still have to scroll to get an overview of a task.

And for narrows views too (mobile phones, tablet portrait view)

The attached screenshot shows moving the task details tabs beside their task description if the display width is over 1200 css pixel. (and the reversed comments too ;-) ). Done with pure css media query:

E.g. add to a custom stylesheet file custom_detailswidescreen.css in folder themes/CleanFS/ :

@media only screen and (min-width: 1200px) and (orientation: landscape) {
.details .tab.active{
        display:inline-block;
}
 
.details .tab{
width:44%;
padding-left:0px;
/*margin-top:60px;*/
box-sizing:border-box;
}
 
.details .commenttext pre {
overflow:auto;
}
.details .comment_container .comment {
width:auto;
margin-left:30px;
display:block;
}
.details .comment_avatar {
position:absolute;
}
.details #comments .fa.fa-user{
font-size:30px !important;
}
 
#submenu li a{margin-left:0;}
 
.details #submenu{
display:inline-block;
position:absolute;
padding:1em 0 0;
margin-top:26px;
}
 
.details #content{
display:inline-block;
box-sizing:border-box;
vertical-align:top;
width:55%;
}
 
/* just a temporary fix: should be redone in theme.css with class instead ids*/
#comments, #related, #notify, #remind, #effort, #history {margin-top:72px;}
 
}

(Has still some problems with current 1.0-rc1 when the project selector wraps. Also tab labels wrap if not enough width available and tab content do not adapt.)

What do you think? How should the details page look on different display sizes? How can it improve the workflow of the user?

2308User InterfaceFeature RequestLowimprove user management for adminsNew
20%
127.10.201613.02.2017 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 like ‘last login’, ‘last activity/tasks/comments created/votes/edit’ 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.

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.

2531TranslationsFeature RequestLowdetect usage of translation keywordsNew
0%
110.01.201919.03.2019 Task Description

Some translation keywords of Flyspray are used at more than one code location.

To help translators doing the correct translations, it would help to show in what context a translation keyword is used.
Especially when a keyword is used more than once.

As we have our own translation helper integrated into Flyspray, we could show a ‘translation keyword usage counter’ there and maybe show on request in which file
a translation keyword is used.

It would also help to identify ‘abandoned’ translation keywords that are not used anymore by Flyspray source.

Also it would help to identify when a translation is used at more than one location with maybe different context.

I think we can use a regular expression and scan the whole Flyspray source for that.
(and maybe database entries if there are places that have translation keywords stored - I don’t think so, but better check that too first than forget that case)

The regular expression should match that examples case insensitive for the translation keyword report:

L('report' 
L("report"
eL('report'
eL("report"

but also ugly cases like
l(    'report'
or 
El ( "report"

case insensitive.

But not for example

createURL('report'

Is there any possible implementation in the future of a way to send new tasks and edited tasks in to discord or some messaging software like bots do, for example github bot will post new issues to a channel in discord so users can see and check up on things, especially for big projects which use these types of things and need a way to notify users of updates

19-04-09 // More one year ago.

On the Flyspray homepage, no informations about https://github.com/flyspray/flyspray

A lot of people think that the project is dead.

In the same time, can you change the https://github.com/Flyspray to https://github.com/flyspray ?

No lost, you can try it already works but it is not the default.

https://github.com/organizations/Flyspray/settings/profile → “Rename organization” and replace Flyspray → flyspray.

1485User InterfaceFeature RequestLowAdditional extended Printview for the TasksPlanned

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.

22.11.200818.04.2009 Task Description

In version 0.9.9.5.1 (unfortunately I couldn't select this version in the dropdown list on the left), reminders can only be created and edited by Admins and Project Managers. I recommend to give Assignees the permission to create reminders for themselves. To minimize any programming impact, his may be done as part of the "edit own tasks" permission.

This topic has been reported by Engie as part of Bug #713 for version 0.9.8 as well: "Also it would be useful if a user could create reminder for himself." Although that bug is already closed ("fixed in devel"), this part is not yet solved in the current version.
