First off, this feature rocks.

Would it be possible to change the way page flow works after modifying an issue using the context menu?

For instance, I have a list of issues displayed (from default query or custom query). I want to modify a single issue status. Currently, when you select the new status, you are redirected to the issue edit page, then you have to click save, then you have click your query again to see the issues list. Instead of going through all of those steps, would it be possible to just refresh the current issue list display with the modified status?

This would make it super easy and less click to modify a simple status

I've attached a patch for this feature request.

Most of the time, I need to add a comment and update a few things when changing the status of an issue.
That's why it's not done with just one click.

Ryan, I didn't test your patch but it doesn't seem to do what was originaly requested. It simply redirects the user to issue list after having clicked on Save on the intermediate screen. But it doesn't skip this intermediate screen.

I can check when I'm back in the office on Monday, but I'm pretty sure that the patch does skip the intermediate edit screen. Setting the {:method => :post} option seemed to do that.

I can understand your argument against changing this, but it does seem more consistent with the rest of the app (priority, assigned to, and % done) if you did skip the edit page. If I want to do more than one thing at once, I'll click edit instead of one of the "quickies."

I confirmed that the patch does skip the intermediate screen.

#5 Updated by Ryan Fowler almost 11 years ago

But, I do like that idea of going back to the issues list after setting the status on the edit page. I believe this patch (back_to_issue_list_after_status_update.patch) does what you thought the first one did. We're going to run with this one for now on our system.
