Columns in subscription email

I'm working through creating a number of subscription emails to push information to my stakeholders. I have the filters setup, but the filters are all sending the same list of columns - we're also using Greenhopper - so I want to be able to send different columns, depending on which filter...

that is, for

filter(1) - send columns A, B, C, D

filter(2) - send columns B, C, E, F


The issue navigator seems to enable setting only a default column list for all filters... I can't find where to set the column list on a per-filter basis... any ideas/suggestions? what am I missing.

Right now, your filters are the default Issue Navigator Column settings, but you can also edit them for every filter separately. When editing the filter, click the Cog icon and pick Configure Columns. Then pick the Columns you want to display and set them in the desired order. Thos settings will be saved together with the filter.

Dora, thank you for your comment.... Perhaps a limitation of the on-demand configuration, when I click on the Cog icon and pick configure columns, I'm only able to change the columns that are visible in the issue navigator - it's NOT on a per-filter basis.

Is this a permissions issue? or perhaps a limitation of on-demand?

I finally(!) figured this out... chaulk it up to a usability problem... The Cog icon for a filter includes two options:

configure columns

set/edit filter column order

Configure columns sets the default column ordering (project list in RDBMS speak) for the Issue Navigator, configuring both ordering and presence/absence of columns

Set/Edit Filter Column Order does the same thing, but only for the filter. Silly me thinking that setting column order would also include presence/absence of columns... Maybe new wording for the menu item - "Configure Filter Columns"
