Whiteboard vision of ongoing tickets


This plugin adds a virtual whiteboard view of active tickets. The virtual whiteboard ('Ticketsboard') is a table divided in ticket states where each ticket is shown as a sticky note.

Key features:

  • Drag & drop a sticky note to another column to change ticket state.
  • Directly edit owner and reviewer of a ticket.
  • Filter tickets to show only tickets where you are the owner or reviewer (link on top right).

As the amount of tickets could be significant:

  • Tickets have different colors according to their types: red for defects, yellow for enhancements, blue for tasks.
  • Ticketsboard shows only tickets where the checkbox 'On Ticketsboard' is checked (this checkbox is created by the plugin).

This plugin is divided in two parts:

  • Reviewer field:
    This part adds, in tickets, a new textbox field 'reviewer' that will contain the name of the reviewer. This new field could also be managed in the ticket workflow. So, each change on ticket state can be combined with a control on the reviewer field (set_reviewer, del_reviewer).
  • Virtual whiteboard (Ticketsboard):
    It adds a new tab in the mainnav bar. This tab shows a dedicated html page that represents the virtual whiteboard. A user can change tickets states through a drag and drop system. As there are restrictions on some states (set_owner, set_reviewer), changes could be rejected. This part adds the checkbox 'On Ticketsboard' and checks that the ticket workflow contains the required states.
