  1. 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)

    • "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…

      • Please add a Planning Poker (blind bidding) method for multiple geograpy teams

        The current "time estimate" tool (http://blog.assembla.com/AssemblaBlog/tabid/12618/bid/68508/Using-Estimates-with-Tickets.aspx) doesn't work because planning poker implements blind bidding from each developer. The point of planning poker is to get an average estimate of time to complete a story instead of having the estimates skewed by one or two developers' opinions.
        That said, you guys could use that same estimates/points assignment, but I need a way (as product owner or scrum master) to not allow the individual developers to see each other's entry until I unhide them and get the averages. And then we discuss their entries during our planning meeting.

        Seems like…

        • Set within-ticket links to open in a new tab (target ="_blank")

          Please add a default setting to all links added to tickets to open in a new tab. Often times I will find myself clicking a link, then closing the tab, losing my place in Assembla.

          • Improve useabilty of the merge request discussion

            With the inclusion of the inline comments in the discussion, and the preservation of theses comments in the discussion over multiple versions, the discussion has a tendency to become large and unwieldy. Also for often commented on merge requests the inline comments drown out any actual discussion that is going on with regard to this merge request. Enable users to configure this aspect and remove the inline comments out of the discussion, or at least limit inline comments to the version that they were made on. For our group the discussion has become almost unusable

            • Links in Wiki's should offer option to link to files in the project.

              You make more work for someone when they have to go to Files and copy a link and then go back to their wiki and add the link that way. Why not offer me an option to link to a file, when I click on Link in wiki's?
              It would make wiki's more useful and powerful.

              Otherwise, wiki's are a glorified notepad.
              Also, add TOC to wiki's. (yesterday's suggestion)

              • Flagging Blocked Tickets Automatically

                Agile requires a high level of transparency. I would like to see tickets, tasks that are blocked have a visible red blocker flag or change color to illustrate that this ticket requires immediate attention. This alerts the team while informing the stakeholders to provide potential support.

                • repo webhook

                  There needs to be a way to set up a web hook for individual repos. For example I have repos for multiple platforms in the same project. I want commit webhook slack messages to goto different channels depending on the repo.

                  • Allow selecting Parent Ticket as "Field To Show" when constructing a filter

                    We use epics to organise all of our tickets. We would like the ability to show the parent of a ticket (at least the number, and preferably the name as well) as a field in the List tool. This would allow us to export the list and create our own reports easily from the csv file, rather than relying on the built-in reporting tools which do not meet our needs.

                    This information is already shown in the list view inside the Number column in the form of a link to the parent, so I think it should be relatively easy…

                          • Only "allowed" members should have access to Git and SVN repos

                            Right now ANY member can download and read from repos ( SVN or Git ). There are protected branches but assume they only prevent Write access and not Read.

                            There is no need for a sales/marketing person or Junior Devs to have access to repo files as files may reveal sensitive credentials sometime.

                            Thanks.

                                It would be nice to be able to update a ticket silently ( add a checkbox for 'do not notify watchers, etc..' ) that does not notify watchers and does not add a comment. Keeping a change log is fine.

                                • Have an option to remove weekends from calculated Metrics

                                  Currently metrics include weekends when calculated. This is creating inaccurate burndowns, velocity measurements and inflates numbers found in "Cycle Time".

                                  To get an accurate measurement of a project, we need to have an option to ignore weekends for metric calculations.

                                  • Rich tooltip or expand/collapse capability in lists such as Cardwall

                                    I suggest to add rich tooltip or expand/collapse capability to each ticket in lists such as Cardwall. The tooltip or expanded mode should IMHO show ticket description. Titles are terse sometimes, and I want to better understand it w/o the (heavy) full ticket view mode.

                                    • Add labels to files WHILE you are uploading them

                                      If you add a file, either in the Files section or through Tickets or Wiki, it would be nice to be able to add labels to them so that you can later keep your Files section tidy.

                                      • Too many files or diff to large.

                                        Will you please at least show the files for "Too many files or diff to large."? This happens too often with my project. It would be nice to just say "file: xyz.cpp too large" for the large file, then dont display that files contents, but at least display a link to the file for revision history and etc.

                                        • Ability to choose a template for Subprojects

                                          Currently, we have the option to select a template when creating a new space; however, when you create a new subproject you don't have that luxury. I would love if we can create sub project templates that would include a pre-set list of milestones, tickets, etc. A lot of our projects follow the same process with minor changes and this would help reduce the time of the initial set up of every sub project we have.

                                          Thanks
                                          Kirk
