epriestley added a comment to T12314: Multilevel custom fields.

Custom Forms are the general tool we want to use here, but they currently have some limitations for this use case. As a starting point, here's what they can do today, some of the strengths, and some of the weaknesses.

I don't see how to configure/use that

Neither can I - I may have imagined it being possible to "lock" the edit form of a task to the one that was used to create them...

cos added a comment to T12314: Multilevel custom fields.

I think it's fine to disallow changing from one type to another - can that be enforced? And sure, I think the custom form approach would work but I don't see how to configure/use that - can you point me in the right direction? I presume this implies that the underlying fields are the union of those exposed by all of the forms which would be fine.

This is a followup to a private discussion elsewhere, I'll flesh it out a bit when I have a chance.

Can a task mutate between "feature" and "risk"? If not, can you use a different Custom Form for each type, which will hide the unused fields?

Also, above, I used the term "deuteranomaly" when I meant "deuteranopia". I mistakenly believed they were describing the same type of colorblindness, but they are two different types.

@epriestley: Yes, we have multiple authentication providers configured and needed in phabricator, and thus "allow auto login" won't work.

cspeckmim added a comment to T12299: Linking Maniphest Tasks to external Bugtrackers.

You can make your own extension to Remarkup to allow auto-linking. I have one setup which I based off of P1129, P1209 which regex matches on Task-xxxx and uses the xxxx to link to our system. That works well and is sufficient for what we need.

Mnkras added a comment to T12291: Diffusion doesn't display file moves/renames in an easily consumable/reviewable way.

We once rendered these renames like this:

new/path/to/file.c
  Moved From: old/path/to/file.c

Personally I like that, I think a compromise to make it easier to consume, would be to try and group the moves together and showing the relation, for example
now:

a ->
b ->
a <-
b <-

to

a ->
a <-
b ->
b <-

Note that I'm not asking for this to be done for everyone, by default. Rather, I want this to be an opt-in feature. I imagine this is also what the people who voted for the question on StackOverflow have in mind.

mirrom added a comment to T12277: Show the points of the sub and parent tasks in the Task Graph.

Thanks for your feedback! As you said it might be very complex to automatically sum up the points of all sub tasks. Of course this would be a very nice to have, but it was not my intention to request this quite complex feature. For us a "simple" UI change would be absolutely sufficient. It would be great to see the points of all sub tasks in the Task Graph at a glance.

epriestley added a comment to T12278: Choose specific form on Create Subtask.

You should already be able to use custom forms to limit access to advanced fields by user, as we do on this install. If you (a user who is not a member of Community) try to create a new subtask here, I believe you will find that you can not access fields like "Assigned To" or "Priority". However, members of Community can.

dtf added a comment to T12278: Choose specific form on Create Subtask.

Well, we do use Workboards and Milestones, Subprojects, but we'd like to have that feature. We have multiple custom fields configured, which are relevant to different parts of the team. I would like to be able to configure different sets of forms for those subteams so our newcomers don't break things they don't yet understand or shouldn't touch.

epriestley added a comment to T12277: Show the points of the sub and parent tasks in the Task Graph.

T12278 suggests that "sprint tasks" are being used in this workflow -- not milestones -- and "backlog tasks" are being used -- not columns. But this task also mentions columns and workboards. A more detailed description of your workflow would be helpful in understanding where the intended tools (milestones and columns) are falling short.

epriestley added a comment to T12278: Choose specific form on Create Subtask.

Why do you create backlog tasks or sprint tasks instead of using Columns on Workboards or Milestones in Projects?

epriestley triaged T12277: Show the points of the sub and parent tasks in the Task Graph as "Wishlist" priority.

I don't think this is necessarily unreasonable, but I'd like to see significantly more interest in it from other installs before we pursue it.

epriestley closed T12222: Add custom fields to the "Task Action..." menu as "Invalid".

Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be moving toward an upstreamable feature request which completely describes a root problem. I'm not sure how we can make what we're asking for more clear. We've already spent a significant amount of time on this and need to move on to other things.

epriestley added a comment to T12275: Allow to rename applications.

The point of my comment was that as someone familiar with KDE, which is broadly a project with a somewhat-similar application structure and somewhat-similar application names, you should reasonably be aware that what you are asking for is not likely to be trivial or straightforward.
