Default fields View fields and Other fields in the Idea issue view

Hi @Tanguy Crusson and team,

We have several product teams trying out the JPD beta, and a question came up about the field panels/displays to the right-side of the page when viewing an Idea issue/ticket.

Will it be possible to configure which fields live in these 3 panels in future? Can see the settings button next to the dropdown arrow for Default fields... but doesnt appear to be anywhere else here or in project settings where you can control the fields for these areas of this Idea view.

In regards to the Default fields, View fields and Other fields highlighted in screenshot.

Just wanted to get some background on how these work, and what might be possible for customisation down the road?

Thanks,
Matt

If I understand correctly, the Default section consists of any fields you would like to have by default, looking at the idea from any view. As mentioned, this is configurable.

The View section consists of all the rest of the fields that are displayed in the current view you are in or came from. I.e. if you opened the idea from the 'All ideas' view, you will see in the View section any field that is configured to be part of the 'All ideas' view and is not in the Default section anyway. If you switch to 'Impact assessment' view (or any other), you will see that the fields that appear in the View section change.

The rest of the fields, those that are not configured in the Default and not part of the current view, will appear in the Other section.

If I am correct, then there is no need to configure any other view, apart from the Default one.

Thank you @Omer Meshar  you got it right!

@Matt Lane basically: 

  • you can configure "default fields" when opening an idea
  • you can configure "view fields" in the view's "fields" configuration (board, list, matrix) - what we show here is any field that is part of the view you just opened the idea from, if it's not already in default fields
  • "Other fields is everything else.

Thank you @Tanguy Crusson and @Omer Meshar , much appreciated! 

Can you also explain the difference between these 3 field sections in the Idea view and how come we can only add new fields to the Default fields section?

Many thanks!
