I've had some client feed back. I want to select around 20 issues that have no unifing factor in Jira and bulk change them to have a different fix version.
But ther is no shift-click select. There are no check boxes. the only way to choose is "all" or "items on this page" That is complete nonsense. How am I supposed to manage hundreds of tickets when I can't just click to select the ones I need and change them?
You've not tested this very far.
When you select "bulk edit" on a filter, it lists all the issues in the filter with check boxes to refine the list.
This happens a step AFTER you have said "all" or "all on this page". The all/all-on-page is just a quick way to get started.
@Anurag Khanna- the Cloud UX was designed to replace the older server interface by a dedicated UX team. (Personally, I think they failed, but that does make the term "UX professional" exactly the opposite of what I would now be looking for)
@Akhil Krishnan- I would guess that you do not have "comment" permission on one or more of the issues you are updating.
'Bulk Edit' is not usable. Once I click on the 'Bulk Edit' link, the issues get put into willy-nilly order instead of the order I had selected, so I am left with hunting down the issues I wanted one by one anyway. Jira could use the tagline "Making simple task management harder every day."
I can't see what problems would be fixed by cluttering up a display with checkboxes all over the place.
There are a couple of open requests for improving how the bulk-edit works, but nothing for throwing it around everywhere.
The improvements I personally like the look of are on the second screen. As now, you run a filter that is quite sweeping, click the bulk-edit option and it gives you the list with include/exclude boxes. Then the improvements would be the ability to do something like quick-filters (show a sub-set to concentrate on ticking/unticking) and be able to sort the list dyynaimically (i.e. what ever gets selected stays selected whatever I do with sort or sub-filters)
Well perhaps you had bad experiences with checkboxes, but I think you can agree that nearly every successful software product which works with lists (let it be thunderbird / outlook / windows , ...) allows to multi-select items and execute a task on them.
It doesn't have to be checkboxes, but selecting several tasks (and also all) by symbol, CTRL, ... is a quite good and old idea to speed things up ;)
