  1. Provide ability to turn off email notifications for anonymous followers, i.e. submitters

    We've been using the Email-to-Tickets functionality for quite some time, but it's been for people that are part of the Team and they have the ability to change their notification settings.

    We are trying to use Email-to-Tickets for Anonymous users and it's working great. However, we are having trouble figuring out how to turn off the auto-notification for the Anonymous users. They are getting inundated with emails when they first send the email to Assembla and the email that they send has images. They get a notification for each image that was in the email.

    We tried to set all…

    • Group by expand/collapse

      When using "group-by" for ticket list, it would be great to have each group expand/collapse, and show the total count for each group.
      I did it with a greasemonkey script (see attached)

      • Git with Large File Storage (LFS)

        Managing git projects wth large files is a pain. Many hosted git services are now offering LFS support, including now githiub. https://github.com/blog/2163-import-repositories-with-large-files

        It would be great if there was a option to turn this on, on a per repo basis.

        • Allow an API Name for any custom fields created

          BACKGROUND
          When creating custom fields for tickets, it would be helpful to separate the notion of label and name. A label is what would appear on the UI, and a name is the attribute name exposed in the API.

          A name would be enforced to use alphanumeric characters with no spaces nor special characters.

          JUSTIFICATION
          When using a language's built in JSON deserialization utility, it's difficult to cast the response body (or build a request body) to an object in code. This is only accomplishable by doing one of the following:

          -- String replacements for the custom field attribute names…

          • Improve and make Time Analysis feature of Time Tool more flexible

            I'd like to suggest several improvements to Time Analysis Tool to make billing reports/timesheets more flexible. I actually need these badly.

            1) When grouping by User, it would be helpful to select to see only one row per ticket with total hrs spent during reporting period. Right now each time entry is presented as a task hence resulting in multiple rows per ticket, which is what some of a billing reports need. In my case I'm more interested in a total worked hrs per ticket in reporting period. It would save me some more time if I'm not to use…

            • Expose Time Entry and Working Remaining in API

              BACKGROUND
              Users are able to add time entries to tickets with the time tool (if configured for that space). This allows for tracking worked and remaining hours against a ticket. Currently, the only value exposed is "working hours" in the API. This does not allow for tracking the work remaining for a ticket nor does it provide granular tracking of developer time entries.

              JUSTIFICATION FOR TIME ENTRIES
              It would be ideal to at least have the ability to GET time entries for a ticket. This would allow other services to appropriately track developer time in the same place that non-developer…

                • Provide a method to specify the time of day that daily summaries are emailed

                  Currently, daily summaries are emailed in the US evening. A lot of work is performed in different time zones (think other side of the globe). It would be very helpful to be able specify the time that the "daily" summary is created.

                  • Nested conversation at merge requests

                    In a developer merge request our team use to make quality assurance checks by other developers.

                    When we need to talk about a specific code, now we started to use the tool of inline comments in a GIT merge-request.

                    However, when we "replay" a comment, our new comment stays right below it, but duplicating all the "inline code" that was highlighted.

                    It becomes very difficult to follow long conversations that way. It would be much easier if conversations would be nested, with no need to show the same code highlighted again...

                    I attached an example of how it is today…

                    • Customize Tags colour

                      Please, add possibility to edit Tags text colour and background colour on Assembla Ticket List.

                      Why is it important?
                      I'd like to make Tag, for example, 'Bug', with red background, to make it very visible on Ticket List. Also I'd like to configure other tags to make them more different from each other.

                      How could it be implemented?
                      Currently we are able to inject CSS through admin panel, mostly for page background, header image background, space name colour and so on. If You could add only class for each tag that will be the same name as tag text (currently…

                      • Add context expansion buttons to Merge Request review UI

                        When reviewing a merge request, there is no way to expend how much of the surrounding code you can see around the diff's. This results in reviews taking longer than they should or bugs being missed. Most other pull request review tools (stash/github) have buttons that allow you to add multiple lines to the context surrounding the diffs. For example, I want to see the previous 10 lines, the following 10 lines, etc...

                          • Add the ticket type in the html so I can change the layout accordingly

                            I want to be able change the colours of the tickets based on the ticket type. Please add the attribute data-type with the value of the ticket type.

                            My goal is (with the stylesheet) to give bugs a red color, user stories yellow, and so on. Also I might refine the colours based on the priority, which is already as a class in the html. The higher the prio, the darker the color.

                            Hope you can apply this quickly, would really help me get the board more clear. Thanks in advance!

                              While Adding a Ticket, all fields are visible in a particular order. Not all of the fields are required to be filled on all occasions and some are of less priority. Would to see ability to rearrange the fields at a space level to make ticket logging faster.

                                    • Tags indentation

                                      I think hierarchical tags it will help to organize tickets.

                                      The idea is, basically like the way you organize labels in Gmail. you could add a tag "under" another tag (that will represent hierarchy in the SW that is being developed).
                                      adding tags to tickets this way will be more easy. because you will not have a bunch of tags to select from, but they will be ordered in predefined sections.
                                      Of course, a "sub tag" should be able to stand alone, or with it's "parent".

                                      of course adding colors to tags while your at it will be great.

                                        • Comments thread display like GMAIL in a ticket

                                          Currently all comments are shown in a ticket . If there are so many comments (let say 100) on that, it displays all comments. So it is time consuming to scroll the page to go the bottom. I would like threaded comments on tickets. Old comments should be collapsed by default. Like in gmail if we have many threads in a mail then it collapsed some mails as "5 older messages".
