  1. 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.

    • (GIT) When create new Merge Requests from a commit use it's branch directly

      Today: In GIT, when we create a branch (named X) manually with a commit (named Y) and then wan't to create a new merge request "X to master" manually, we have to select origin X (1 From) while destination (2 To) is already at master in the "compare" screen, and then use the "Create merge request" option. This choose of origin X is necessary even when we use the "New merge request" option while seeing the commit Y which is present only in branch X.

      Suggestion: When we are seeing a commit Y which only exists in branch X, and…

      • For Hourly/Daily Email Notifications, Summarize Each Ticket, Not Just Stream

        Hourly/Daily Email Notifications are a good start to manage the noise of ticket changes, but you have to work too hard to just read through the stream of chronological changes.

        Better for the email to summary all the changes for each ticket in one place for the time period.

        eg.

        #123 - Ticket Title
        - change 1
        - change 2
        - change 3
        - change 4

        With emphasis on the resulting current state of the ticket (eg. Fixed).

        • 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)

          • Add a button to sort spaces alphabetically

            For users with a lot of spaces (projects), it's very easy for the spaces to get out of order. Then it becomes rather hard to find the right space. You can sit there and sort them manually, but there's no quick way to alphabetize them.

            I wrote a little JavaScript bookmarklet that I use to alphabetize my spaces when they get out of order:

            $('#my-spaces-list').children('li').get().sort(function(a, b) {
            var lhs = $('a', a).text().toLowerCase(),
            rhs = $('a', b).text().toLowerCase();
            return lhs < rhs ? -1 : lhs > rhs;
            }).forEach(function(el) {
            el.parentNode.appendChild(el);
            });
            $('#my-spaces-list').sortable('option', 'update').call($('#my-spaces-list'));

            Feel free to use it if you have…

            • Customize Standup

              It would help owners and team leads to be able to customize stand up.
              1) Ability to add own custom fields
              2) Ability to customize current fields
              3) Ability to allow auto full from tickets
              4) Ability to Edit own stand up (if admin allows)

              These three things will help improve reporting for all teams.
              Thank you.

              • "Submitted" GIT merge-requests autoreload automatically every second until changed to "Merged" or "Conflict"

                When I merge a merge-request, I open the link of the merge-request and keep pression F5 until the page is rendered with green "merged" or red "conflict".

                In majority of our projects a submitted commit is merged/conflicted almost instantly. On the other hand, some bigger projects have a waiting time, with many F5 used until done.

                This "submitted" component should automatically reload itself every second util the new closed status of "merged" or "conflict" is achieved. And then, only when the status is changed the page could reload itself completely.

                  • Allow rich formatting in tickets

                    Please allow rich formatting in the ticket tool. You can use the same parser as the wiki does (but even that needs help).

                    Or at least an html subset, Please!

                    For expedience's sake (because being used to JIRA, this is kind of painful) could you simply allow sanitized html first (that should very quick to implement)?

                    Then once the wiki's textile (or markdown) parser component is up to par you can reuse that for the ticket tool.

                    • Ticket Progress with Progress bar

                      Add a per ticket progress tool. This can be a drop down selection in 10's (0%, 10%, 20%, etc).
                      Allow customization for each team/project to decide what format they wish to display this in.

                      It is important for many software and other programming based tickets to show progress along with the milestones. Since some tickets/tasks are dependent on agile development, it can help show progress for longer or related tickets/tasks to the managers and even the owners themselves. It helps them see their progress and encourages further progress in the future.

                      This does not have to link to the actual…

                            • When a merge request is merged, include the merge request description in the merge commit message.

                              Currently when a git merge request is merged, the resulting merge commit includes the merge request title and indicates who signed off on the merge request. It would be very useful to also include the merge request description. (This could be an option configured on the git repository, or per merge request.)

                              In particular, this would add valuable information to "build changes" emails generated from build automation tools which scrape the commit logs.

                              • Allow 1 readonly svn user per project without requiring an email address for that account

                                For deployment, it is nice to use a separate readonly account to checkout/export files, to prevent accidental changing of files on production machines. It would be great if we could create an extra readonly svn user without needing it to be a "person" with a separate email address.

                                  • Hide hours worked from team members in a space

                                    As of right now, hours worked are visible to everyone in a space. I would like the option to have them visible only to admins, since clients are frequently in spaces as team members. Hours billed do not always correspond cleanly to what's been worked against tickets in Assembla (project management hours, etc), and having the hours visible here causes problems with billing.

                                    • Omit space change on commit diffs

                                      Code review can be greatly improved allowing us to omit space changes while seeing the commit diff.

                                          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?

                                          When adding a ticket, we're able to preview the same, which is very handy, however we don't have this feature when adding a WIKI page.
