It would be very helpful to be able to edit issues directly within the issue list view.

For example, if the Priority column is included in the issue list/custom query, as user could directly edit the priority of a particular issue, perhaps by double-clicking on the priority of that issue and being presented with an, inline, drop-down.

This would allow for quickly updating various aspects of several issues, without having to "go into" each - which can be quite painstaking process and a confusing one if several people are involved/watching at once.

Did you know there is a right-click contextual menu on issue list (and also in issue's subtasks and related issues lists)?

#2 Updated by James Robertson about 11 years ago

Yes, thanks Etienne. Although I usually use it for bulk editing and hadn't thought about it for quick-edits on individual tickets.

Can you edit custom fields from the context menu though? If not, perhaps that should be a separate feature request, which might satisfy this one.

The other thing I like about inline editing is that it's better for when you're working with several people looking at the screen, because it's easy for them to see what is happening.

+1 for this feature. One of my most used features in Rally. Regarding editing custom fields from the context menu - it seems like this wouldn't work for most fields except List type.

Really would like this for the purposes of re-ranking a list. I use a custom field ("Rank") to order my list by priority. It is supremely time consuming to edit each ticket individually when priorities change.

Drag-and-drop Ordering would also be acceptable (#8016 or #9183).

+1, would be very useful for editing a quick comment per ticket while in lits view, means less going to individual tickets/tabs (which is annoying in big web meetings with delays).

+1, especially for usability in general project management (no extra clicks / browser tabs upon editing custom fields).

+1, huh...

We just released a plugin that enables users to edit issues directly from the issue list. On top of that, it adds priority colors, issue search, avatars and a lot more. Check the RedmineX Inline Edit Issue List
