I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  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,

      We are in the process of our next round of big updates. In this next release are rebuilding the experience of the Repo tools and Files tool. We are really excited about these updates and think you will be too!

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

      -David

    • gantt diagram

      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…

            • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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...

                    • "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.

                      • 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.

                        • Ability to create ticket comment as 'Private' or 'Public'

                          Would like the concept of ‘private’ and ‘public’ comments – where ‘private’ comments would only be visible to ‘owners’ or ‘members’. Option to set comments to be ‘private’ or ‘public’ by default

                            Allow a clickable table of contents to be optionally added to a wiki page that uses the heading text as in-page links, a la what wikipedia does.

                            • Associate Commits with Tickets

                              Every time I commit, I enter the ticket # in the commit message. In the repo history, I can click to see the ticket the commit was associated with. But more importantly, the reverse should also be true. I should also be able to go the ticket, and see all the commits associated with the ticket. So in one snapshot, I can review the code, and pass it if need be (if I'm the reviewer). Like ticket associations, they should be in the middle of the ticket. SourceForge does this, and make life sooooo much easier.

                                • Split "Activity" tab into "Comments" and "History" in ticket tool

                                  The current Activity tab is a bit cluttered, mixing state and field changes to the ticket (priority move, milestone assignment etc) with developer-entered comments. This makes it difficult to follow just the comment-based discussion on the ticket. So I suggest that these two types of info be separated into two tabs.

                                  • 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.

                                    • GIT branch/network diagram like on github.com

                                      have a diagram like this https://github.com/mantisbt/mantisbt/network

                                      that would be very helpful for GIT. otherwise it’s quite hard to figure out which branches are merged where, etc.

                                      • Cardwall ticket should also have Time Remaining, Time Invested, and it should sum up the Time Remaining for each Status and the Grand Total

                                        Cardwall ticket should also have Time Remaining, Time Invested, and it should sum up the Time Remaining for each Status and the Grand Total for the Milestone.

                                        This way we can see how much time is left on each ticket, which ticket has gone over the estimate and needs attention, and how much workload is left in each columns and in the entire 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
