Re: FW: issue tracker permissions
Dear Dan, dear Lisa, dear Chip, dear community,toggle quoted message Show quoted text
sorry for digging out this old issue again and again. If you are just tuning in, here is the situation
· I like Pivotal Tracker as a product
· I have to use Tracker for my daily work, as it is currently mandatory for all CFF projects and all of them use it
· The restrictions in pivotal tracker make it hard to impossible to do the daily stuff you want to do within a large open-source community.
After initially bringing this up in November last year, here are a few of the problems I addressed with Dan in a hangout session in February:
· To follow stories in a project you need to be a member of that project. Therefore, you cannot track progress on stories in other projects.
· To comment on stories, the same restrictions as above apply
It has been 3 months since Dan and I talked, I’ve checked back every 4 weeks with him and what I’ve heard so far is ideas. I haven’t seen a prototype, any specifics on the current state, any planning details. It’s not like I’m demanding this feature should be done by now – I just want to know what is going on.
I have to say I am very unhappy in how this topic is treated. From my point of view, it seems like there is a huge lack of transparency and feedback. Please, let me know what’s going on. I don’t want to switch to a different tracker, such as e.g. trello, but if the requirements of a large open-source community aren’t heard, then I don’t know what else to do about this.
PS: What about a public tracker backlog in tracker, so people can follow their favorite feature stories and see where they are in the planning and when they’re done?

it has now been more than a month since I sent my feedback concerning this feature to the tracker team – I haven't received any reaction to it.
@Chip: Is there an option you could weigh in for this from the Foundation perspective? That would be great!
Sorry for being so stubborn about this, but in my opinion this is a crucial feature for a bug tracker/backlog which is used in an open-source product. I know that all the people working directly at pivotal don't feel the pain, because they can either talk directly to everyone in person or have the necessary rights to comment/follow in the other projects, but for everyone else this is really, really a problem.

Thanks for pointing me to this link. However, we seem to have the same problem here: This seems like a fire-and-forget solution. Where does this item go? How can I send it to other people and have them +1 it, like it, follow it, favorite it or whatever is necessary to indicate that there is more than 1 person wanting this feature?
Thanks and warm regards

If you're logged in to Tracker, there's a "Help & Updates" link at the top, and one of the options is Provide Feedback.

I'd happily submit a feature request to build up some visible demand for this – could you point me to the right channel here?
Thanks and warm regards

Unfortunately in order to follow a story in tracker, the minimum required level is "member" which allows you to create/comment/delete stories in tracker.
I would suggest submitting a request to the pivotal tracker team to help build up evidence that this is a feature that people want.

Sorry to resurrect an older thread, but I wanted to chime in that this is a frustration I have too. There are several stories in the various CF teams public backlogs that I'd like to keep track of.
Is it possible for community members to get enough permissions on our tracker accounts to add ourselves to the follow list?

Hi Marco, Jan,
I sent an email to Tracker support about that last week because we were hoping to close CLI feature requests on GH and let people follow the stories on Tracker. Support confirmed that people need to have R/W access to a project to do that.
I have just replied to ask if they'd consider an enhancement. Not sure what the proper channel would be to get such a story prioritized.
Will let you know if I get a reply.

Thanks Jan for bringing that up, I've had similar problems with that as well. Any ideas on how to solve this? Is this a feature that the tracker team actively works on?
Hitting cmd+r every few days on the same stories doesn't seem like the best way to stay informed about your favorite features.
