#3709 Regression: no fast filtering of tickets in tracker is available.

No

The possibily to have predefined searches in Allura is appreciated but it shouldn't eliminate the possibility for fast filter selection. That possibility is present in every decent tracker but Allura.

What I mean? There should be some 'Advanced filter' mode which will allow to select some value(s) for each ticket's field in dropdown boxes instead of set all possible combinations in predefined list. In case of LXDE that list may be easily a hundred items long and this will DEFINITELY confuse every user and we end up having no list but having a lot of troubles because every developer will have to learn your filtering syntax and manually enter filter each time. That is a huge regression and inconvenience. Our developers already asked to migrate to another platform but SF.net due to hard-to-use existing tracker. Seing your Allura is even harder to use for developers they will not ask anymore but demand the migration.

    Also see ticket #873, it has a bigger explanation of ticket search regressions, summarized at http://usecode.org/misc/tracker.txt - I have no intentions to duplicate all of them as well.

    We now have a dropdown on ticket views that allows quick filtering.

    I'm sorry to tell you but your fix is incomplete, the problem still exists. The column I require to sort the most is Category (which is Label now) - it has no dropdown selection so your update while is good to have is still only partially useful. Fix it, please. Thanks.
