How are you handling 1000+ plans in the plan menu?


Guido Schneider (3.4k1383110) | asked Dec 23 '11, 3:21 p.m.
Have you ever tried to find some plans, when you already have 1000 of them?

Of course there is the CURRENT PLAN Menu item. But what is, when you like to see the plan from the last Iteration or the one from the Backlog or a feature plan, which are not marked as current?

It looks like nobody has ever thought about the usability of the Plan menu. Just list all plans in a flat list with an Iteration Header line, sorted by date, ascending (!) may be usefull when you created a new project. But if you have a project with 15 teams, and more than 30 sprints within one release, you will end in tons of plans.

I know, there is the filter at the top right corner, where you can filter plans by name, hopefully your naming schema for plan names is good enough to filter what you like to se.

Why not having a Tree view for the plans?
Why not having a "ALL NOT FINISHED PLANS" Menu item?
Why not allow to reverse the sorting (descending)
Or a configurable selection of plans? e.g. like you can select iterations in reports (but please not a flat selection list, do a tree view list) or Starting dated later than... etc.

How are others dealing with such situations?

Guido

You should submit an enhancement work item on jazz.net.

You should take a look at how its done in the Eclipse client, to see if
that perhaps is the kind of thing you'd like to see (there is a planning
tree, that is structured as an iteration structure, where you open an
iteration to see its sub-iterations and its plans).

Thanks Goeff.

I will. I'm wondering how other Companies are doing this, because I wasn't find a enhancement request in this area.

In the Eclipse Client it's much more intuitiv.
