  1. 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...

        • Allow Moving Multiple Tickets Up and Down Cardwall Column

          In PowerPoint, users have the ability to select multiple slides via Shift-Click and/or Ctrl-Click and then drag them up or down to rearrange the slide order. I'd like to have the same feature in Assembla's cardwall to multi-select tickets in a column and drag them up or down to prioritize or deprioritize them.

          • Wiki Titles: Allow longer wiki titles and basic non-standard characters (/ # .=..)

            Allow creation of page titles with enough information to make the wiki searchable (maximum is 50 characters) and some pages need to be titled with property names or code requiring non-standard characters (users will only be find the content if it displays correct syntax)

            • syntax highlighting in merge requests

              Merge request code difference syntax highlighting
              It would be good to have syntax highlighting in merge request code when viewing differences. Now code syntax highlighting seems to work only when opening the whole file.

              Best Regards,
              Henri

              • Use color coding in the new Cardwall view

                Similar to what you have in the "Planner" view - bring the color coding of epics versus stories to the New Cardwall view.

                • Highlight the whole new line in split diff

                  In the split diff view new lines are prefixed with a one-char wide green color. It is very confusing because it looks as a whitespace change. See the attached screenshot. Lines 38-40 look as if they existed before, but leading whitespace changed. Actually those lines were added in this diff.

                  I'd like to see them highlighted with grren color, just like the changes at lines 46-47 on the screenshot

                  • cloudflare preventing access

                    Today we started getting responses from your site/Cloudflare that we are blocked because of improper use or something.
                    This is pretty annoying especialy since we are logged in and also a paying customer so there really is no need for aditional security measures!
                    What is going on?
                    This is the data reported:

                    • Have a dedicated e-mail per Space for each team member

                      It would be nice if each Team Member would be be able to configure a dedicated e-mail per Space.

                      Actually, an user have only one global e-mail for all the spaces (in profile settings).

                      This is not really convenient, if for example you have one space for your project company (and have to use company email), and one space for other personal projects (and you want to use your personal email).

                        • Option to have Single Milestone for Multiple projects

                          When we have multiple implementations projects then some of the projects may require certain features within same time line i.e. milestone. If there is an option where a single milestone can be used for multiple projects. It would be good for implementations projects to plan.

                            We are hoping to be able to add this for Portfolio Assembla accounts in the future, along with a Cardwall at the Portfolio level.

                          • Improve Assembla's poor search capability.

                            Not only is locating tickets via search for keywords non-robust, the results are often too lengthy, making really frustrating to use. A search for "container" finds all instances of "contains." Really? If there is any way to impart DISCIPLINE to the search criteria, I have not found it, because use of the Ticket Tool's search feature is not described in any tips/tricks/documentation anywhere that I could find.
                            1. Loose single/multiple words (current method).
                            2. Exact search for multiple words, inclusive (contains all words).
                            3. Exact search for multiple words, exclusive (contains any word).
                            4. Exact entire string (including loose whitespace). …

                              • syntax highlighting code tag on tickets

                                Asmbla is for developers.
                                Nothing is more important to a developer's code, only the code and code and code!
                                Not now features syntax highlighting code tag (<code>) on the tickets, is a big handicap.
                                Something like here: https://tohtml.com
                                I hope that this issue be addressed.

                                  You can currently only sort ticket lists by 2 fields. I would like to be able to sort by a 3rd field.

                                    • Option for Wiki links to open in new tab

                                      When adding a link to a wiki page, it would be very useful to have an option to set that link to open in a new tab.

                                      I have to edit the html for the page to do this now and it's tedious.

                                      • Show wiki edits in the Stream

                                        Wiki edits do not show up in the stream. An Oct 15, 2105 reply by Assembla customer support to someone else who requested the same thing (https://helpdesk.assembla.com/customer/portal/questions/14422022-wiki-edits-don-t-show-in-stream) said that, by default, Wiki edits only show on the Wiki page History, and they do not get added to the Stream. that answer implies that wiki edits *could* show up in the Stream, and indeed, on the Stream tab, i see a checkbox for Wiki. however, it does not work.
                                        also, as the original requester noted, the comment i added does not appear in the Page History either -- so…
