Teams are looking to add text fields to their JPD projects but are limited to short text, is there a way to add a paragraph-type field or plans to add that functionality?
Hi @Dave Nicholson it's not supported yet but definitely something we plan to do at some point. We still need to figure out where these are supported in the overall UI.
It depends what you're trying to do, but if it's to make sure people can describe different aspects of an idea we've seen teams use description templates (you can create your own):
+1 to this feature.
For us, we're a software company. We have our own 'programming language' that our internal users utilize. Many times feature suggestions come with code examples. It would be excellent to have these code examples be corralled into a separate text field rather than alongside the problem definition itself.
Additionally, we'd like to break out business impact from problem definition.
+1 on this feature request. yeah we also need it for business justifications and KPI and more
+1 on this feature request. I want to split description data in some scenarios to expose different summaries and information to different stakeholders.
It will also be valuable when Forms are fully integrated into JPD.
+1 to add multi-line text fields. Our organization has several multi line custom fields that is used to define and submit an idea.
Hello @Tanguy Crusson
Please correct me if I am wrong, JPD still doesn't support multi-line text field. Is that right ?
@Tanguy Crusson do you have any recommendations for migrating multi-line text field from the former idea portal over to JPD ? We have around 700+ ideas with 10+ long text fields each with over 255 characters. We do not want to lose that data during the migration using csv import. Please advise.
Thank you in advance.
Hey @Tanguy Crusson I am migrating 800+ ideas from Aha!. I have a csv dump of all the ideas from our old idea portal (Aha)
There is already a separate Comments field in aha and CSV does allow me to migrate long text into comments in JPD.
However I have a couple of text fields in aha (see below Bullet list) that have to be ideally migrated to its own individual custom fields in JPD .
Would you recommend importing the below questions and responses to insights using the API ? If yes could you share more details/doc please ?
Please advise! Thank you!
I can think of 3 options:
Thanks for your quick response. Appreciate it.
1) I do not understand your first point above. I already have the dump of ideas from Aha, are you suggesting to append all these questions to the description field and then import it to JPD ? If yes then I can do it in excel itself using "merge two cells" function, why would I need an engineer, Sorry want to make sure I am not missing anything here.
3) Reg point nr 3, Is using an API the only option to map text fields from aha to the insight field ? Looks like it is not supported by the CSV importer, Am I right?
1) sure, if you find a way to do this directly in Excel, perfect 🙂
2) yes, the only way is using the API - the CSV importer does not yet support insights (we'll add support for this later though)
@Tanguy Crusson - is there any update on when this field type will be added? this seems fundamental, especially that Product Discovery is coming out of beta.
This field type does exist in Jira Software. I do appreciate that there is a templating option but we all probably need another long text field.
Fantastic tool overall!
I'd like to add paragraph fields to JPD ideas as well.
We have another project that acts as a Project Intake Form (JSM, TM, Cloud) with individual questions about Project goals, Problem Statements, etc, and we need to be able to shoot the contents of those paragraph fields in JSM custom fields into paragraph fields in JPD. We use Elements Copy and Sync to create the JPD issues and sync the fields so that they stay the same.
It's imperative that we can do this.
For now, I'm just using an automation to pull the data from each of the JSM paragraph fields and then using smart values to build the description.
It's a one-way sync at this point because if you update the fields on the JSM side, it'll shoot them over to the JPD description. But if you edit the JPD description, it doesn't update the JSM individual fields. This won't work.
Any idea when this will be implemented? I'd be happy with just some additional fields that show up below the Description field if they have data. If not, they could be hidden.
