  1. Please, improve the user experience in Assembla.

    There are many ways to make UI clean and beautiful. Look at GitHub and Bitbucket interface designs and concepts, they are more usable and obvious, as Assembla user interface is.

      Hey everyone,

      I’m excited to tell you that we’ve released our first big UX improvement to the wiki tool. This is a big first step in rolling out a new UI pattern for our tools that provides thoughtful organization of our controls and adds a new button for help. This is just the beginning, keep an eye out as we continue to roll this new layout to more tools over the coming weeks and months.

      If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me at david@assembla.com.

      -David

      integration of gantt functionality would be great, even stand alone at the beginning would be of great benefit

        • Subtract Hours Invested from Work Hours Remaining

          It would be great if this feature will copy the XPLanner (xplanner.org) functionality. At the very beginning the task have ORIGINAL ESTIMATION and HOURS REMAINING equal to ORIGINAL ESTIMATION. When you enter time entries (how many did you work on the task) the ORIGINAL ESTIMATION remains as it was and HOURS REMAINING is suggested as ORIGINAL ESTIMATION minus (-) TIME SPENT\WORKED.
          But! You can modify it if it doesnt reflect the situation (if you incorrectly estimated the task). That very cool and suitable.

          Also the Scrum sprint and Scrum burndownchart can be built on this information.

          Also XPlanner allows us…

          • Create a 'clone ticket' function

            Copy all the content from an existing ticket to a new ticket. Useful when splitting a user story or creating a "continuation' ticket to finish partial work in a new iteration.

                • Agile Planner: Release Planning and Velocity

                  Agile Planner is nice, but only Sprint Backlog has the burndown chart. There needs to be similar thing for release planning and product backlog burndown and team velocity.

                    We have the velocity report and several other reports that help with Agile Planning, we will continue to flush out the reports. Take a look under the Tickets tool subtab: metrics.

                  • Creating a payment system integrated with Time tool

                    It would be very nice to have as an owner possibility of connecting team member with his $/per hour price. Paychecks would be easy as one two three. Additional feature would be setting price in a period of time for ex. Martin 01.10 - 02.12 10$/h, Martin 03.12.08 - 05.01.09 15$/h (because it's christmas time). I would be very easy to control bonus hours, in one listing.

                    • Burndown: compare with expected linear burndown

                      Displaying the expected linear burndown (really a line from (milestone start, initial workload) to (milestone end, 0) helps interpreting the milestone trend: is more work being added regularly, is the velocity too low, etc...

                      • Time Reporting: Add Custom Field Selector

                        In the Time panel ( tab ) the time reporting customization should have the option to select one or more Custom Fields for all Tickets.
                        In our case, each ticket has a Custom Field 'SOW' that needs to be included for a time report.

                        • Custom tool permissions for team members

                          For example:

                          wiki svn tickets images
                          ---------------------------------------------------------
                          user1 view none edit edit
                          user2 edit edit edit view
                          user3 none nice view none

                          etc.

                          Alternatively, add the ability to add custom member groups that would allow similar functionality.

                          • "milestone" filter in time reports

                            You can't get total time by user/users in milestone now. It would be very useful if the results could be grouped by milestone.

                                    • tickets listing column needed for last updated

                                      I think in these tickets listing if we also have a column last updated, which is timestamp of last anyone did anything with the ticket that would be great

                                      • Periodical email notification if ticket exceeds time limit

                                        Currently you can receive notification only when ticket is created.
                                        It would be useful if we had Planned Completion Date field, and if ticket is not closed when time is over assignee receives reminding notification.

                                        • Code comments should take you directly to the code.

                                          When I comment on people's code, it's really hard for them to find where I commented. It would be good if there was a link on the comment notification to take them *straight to the comment*, not just the changeset.
