  1. 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…

        • 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…

            • 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.

                  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?

                • 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.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • SVN Allow us to mark sub-directories as readonly for certain users

                            SVN + Apache allow custom permissions at any point in the project tree. Surface that functionality somehow so that it is possible to grant a person read/write access to a portion of a project instead of to the whole project.
                            Ideally make it possible to hide portions of the tree entirely, i.e. zero access at the top but readonly access to a sub area.

                              • "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…

                                • FTP builds history on stream : Deployed from... wich server?

                                  If we have defined more than one FTP servers, the deploy info from stream isn't related to any of them: therefore the info is absolutely inefficient.

                                  Please: can you append the deploy server name?

                                  Thanks!

                                  • Tickets Filter: Milestones - Allow selection of Milestone category

                                    For Tickets Filter, Milestones - allow selection of Milestone category ("All Current", "All Backlog", "All None") since individual milestones might have different names in each project, but a filter could be saved to show "current" milestone tasks - regardless of the name of the milestone.

                                    • Auto expand file diff if there is only one file change in commit

                                      If there are a small number of files changed, there's no reason not to expand the commit. Could you have the file diffs auto expand if there's only one or two files changed by the commit.

                                        • Preview of automatic merge

                                          When there is a Merge request, show beforehand whether the branches can be merged without conflict. GitHub does this as well (example below). It probably works by simply trying it 'behind the scenes', but it would be really nice to know whether or not my merge requests will raise conflicts.

                                          Example:
                                          https://github.com/hadley/testthat/pull/260
