Problem statement: cannot easily distinguish the priority arrows and their colors when viewing a list.
Question: instead of displaying the arrows for priority is it possible to switch to simply display the priority name? ("Highest", "High", "Medium" etc)?
I'm aware that another custom icon could be added, but I'm interested in using the already available "Priority Name" ("Highest", "High", "Medium"...) and simply displaying that instead of the priority icon (the arrow icons).
I put it in a plugin to save time. For self-hosted installations -- https://bitbucket.org/sfbehnke/navigator-priority-prettytext
You can download the plugin via the downloads page --
Thank you Steven for the pointer. Adding the Priority name/word next to the icon is good, but the issue is that we have a issue filter set up every week that we export the filter result to Microsoft Word so we can copy and paste the information such as "Key, Summary, Status, Priority, Reporter, etc"
Reason to export to WORD:
Your solution works nicely for the Issue Navigator. I would also like to display the priority label on Dashboards as well in each gadget that has the priority column. I have yet to figure out a way to get that to work. My initial thought was to change the selector to the following
but unfortunately something with Dashboards is preventing the label for inserting.
Would you have any suggestions?
@Steven Behnke I just downloaded your plugin today. Everything looks great when I view my issues in the Issue Navigator. However, I would like to view the Priority text in the Printable view (Export --> Printable) as well. Unfortunately, it automatically reverts to just the Priority icon when I export to printable view. Would you happen to know how I can view the text, as well as the icon, in the printable view?
Thank you so much!
Priorities used to be text. This colored arrow feature is really unwelcome. High, medium, low is useful.
Will this come back?
I notice that in export to excel the column has these values. Perhaps one should stop doing priorities in Atlassian and use Microsoft excel instead. If nothing else, excel allows the user to choose formats!
