  1. Add additional filtering options to the ticket planner view

    We have a very large backlog and it is difficult manage. I would like to see additional filtering on the backlog in the planner view such as:

    Filtering on multiple tags.
    Order by priority or filter by priority (color would be great as well)
    Move to top or bottom will maintain when switching between filtered view and no filter (not having this makes the feature useless for large backlogs)

    • Wiki space owner unable to archive wiki pages

      I am a core member of a portfolio and an owner of the space but I am not able to archive wiki pages. Seems like as an owner of a space I should be able to do this. Seems really odd to be able to delete every wiki as an owner but I can not archive them.

      Not sure if this will help but in the top right corner for the space it says ( Pro/Private Project | Owner ) for this space I am using as an example.

      • request access from owner on a space

        I get provided a link all the time to a space I dont have access to within our company portfolio. It would be nice on the page that says NOT PERMITTED there was a request access link. Maybe on that page I could put in the email from the person that sent me the link that way every owner does not get an email to approve access.

        To simplify even more maybe if I could just provide an email for one of the owners on the space to get auto added as a member. That would be ideal. Having a…

          Thanks for the details. We have created a backlog ticket for this, and escalated it to our product managers.

          As a workaround for now, if your Portfolio owner wants to give you the Manager permission role in the Portfolio-Users page, you will be able to view any space in the portfolio even if you are not listed as a member in the Team pages of all those spaces.

            I can imagine how this would be frustrating. It might be confusing to “select” tickets that are not displayed on that page.
            Maybe instead, we could add an option to ‘Display up to 500 more tickets on this page’ or something.
            Would that meet your needs, or only partially? What is the maximum number of tickets you need to update at once?

          • "Files" Section Problem

            Hello all,

            In my company we started to use Assembla 5 months ago and actually we think that is a very useful tool.

            Up until now we used to upload documents with code via Git.

            Last month we changed that approach and started to upload all our documents in
            the "Files" Section.

            From that Point On we have encountered various problems.

            The main problem is that we have not found a way to download all the documents that we have there !!! Not even a whole folder at once.

            We think that it would be more than useful, actually essential…

            • Provide ability to name repositories

              Provide ability to name repositories, its very constraining to use the project-name.git as it is. I would like to use different names for the different repositories which are hosted.

                Currently the repository name is based on the Space URL name. If you create the space with name MyGitRepo, then the repository URL will be git@git.assembla.com:MyGitRepo.git

                The Space URL name can be edited in the Admin-Appearance page, before a repository is created in that space.

                Also, there are two options in the Repository Settings page in that Assembla workspace:
                The “Title” field will rename the label of the repository Tab in your workspace.
                The “Repo Name” field will allow you to insert custom text into the repository URL after the Spacename, e.g. git@git.assembla.com:MyGitRepo.CUSTOMTEXT.git

              • Please, for god's sake, let me anchor and make a table of contents in the wikis!

                Just like I said... let me anchor and make a table of contents in the wikis!
                If you want wiki's to be really useful, you need this feature for knowledge capture and transfer.

                • Please add a Planning Poker (blind bidding) method for multiple geograpy teams

                  The current "time estimate" tool (http://blog.assembla.com/AssemblaBlog/tabid/12618/bid/68508/Using-Estimates-with-Tickets.aspx) doesn't work because planning poker implements blind bidding from each developer. The point of planning poker is to get an average estimate of time to complete a story instead of having the estimates skewed by one or two developers' opinions.
                  That said, you guys could use that same estimates/points assignment, but I need a way (as product owner or scrum master) to not allow the individual developers to see each other's entry until I unhide them and get the averages. And then we discuss their entries during our planning meeting.

                  Seems like…

                  • Only "allowed" members should have access to Git and SVN repos

                    Right now ANY member can download and read from repos ( SVN or Git ). There are protected branches but assume they only prevent Write access and not Read.

                    There is no need for a sales/marketing person or Junior Devs to have access to repo files as files may reveal sensitive credentials sometime.

                    Thanks.

                        • Archive spaces as a core user and owner

                          Currently you have to be a manager user. It would be nice if you can be a core user and just be an owner of the space. There are spaces where I am the only person on the team tab as the owner and I need to archive that space. Seems really odd that I can delete the space in the admin tab but I can not archive it.

                          Also there should be an archive button right next to the delete button in the admin tab.

                                • Periodically check if the current ticket shown in the browser has been modified and prompt user if has been changed

                                  Whenever I have assembla open in the browser it can be open for quite some time whilst I am working on a ticket. If for any reason the ticket that I am working on is edited by another team member I don't always know that it has been updated.

                                  It would be great if you could add a feature that if the ticket you have opened in your web browser is edited by another person display a pop up message of some sort to let the user know of this.

                                  • Improve useabilty of the merge request discussion

                                    With the inclusion of the inline comments in the discussion, and the preservation of theses comments in the discussion over multiple versions, the discussion has a tendency to become large and unwieldy. Also for often commented on merge requests the inline comments drown out any actual discussion that is going on with regard to this merge request. Enable users to configure this aspect and remove the inline comments out of the discussion, or at least limit inline comments to the version that they were made on. For our group the discussion has become almost unusable

                                      CTRL+Enter is becoming used more and more as a sort of 'submit' hotkey. It would be really nice to also have this in tickets in Assembla

                                      • Links in Wiki's should offer option to link to files in the project.

                                        You make more work for someone when they have to go to Files and copy a link and then go back to their wiki and add the link that way. Why not offer me an option to link to a file, when I click on Link in wiki's?
                                        It would make wiki's more useful and powerful.

                                        Otherwise, wiki's are a glorified notepad.
                                        Also, add TOC to wiki's. (yesterday's suggestion)

                                        • Private custom fields

                                          It would be useful to have custom fields visible only to authorized users.
