Summary0007737: Changed(hrs) filter
DescriptionWhat does the Changed(Hrs) filter do? I thought it was to show all issues that have been amended in the last (6hrs by default). But it cannot be since it always show issues that have not been modified in the last 10 days as well.

Either this filter is to report something useful or it should be removed from the filter list since it ends up confusing filters more than provide any useful function.

Changed(Hrs) setting is not working as a filter.
The values of column "Updated" are shown bold if the issue has been updated in last n hours.

A change of UI could help to avoid this confusion.
Perhaps place it right beside "Sort by"

I just stumbled over the "Changed(hrs)" filter.

I could imagine to do two changes:
- place "Changed(hrs)" right beside "Sort by" and rename it to "Highlight changes (hrs)"
- build a new filter that takes the previous position of "Changed(hrs)" and that is doing what many users expected "Changed(hrs)" to do: show all entries that have been updated in the last <<input>> hours.

What do you think of it?

For testing purposes I have done those changes using a plugin. But I think it could be useful to change the core functionality.

HeikoSL,

Both ideas make sense, and I fully agree that it should be in core and not a plugin. I would suggest:

> place "Changed(hrs)" right beside "Sort by" and rename it to "Highlight changes (hrs)"

Implement this one right away (please submit a pull request)

> build a new filter that takes the previous position of "Changed(hrs)" and that is doing what many users expected
> "Changed(hrs)" to do: show all entries that have been updated in the last <<input>> hours.

This is indeed the "real" solution, but considering that the filter api is a complex and sensitive beast, it might be better to postpone implementation to a later date (although a Pull Request is still welcome).

There is some more redesign needed, e.g.
"Show" is also no filter but a setting

Have also a look at 0014736 for other UI enhancements.

Maybe it's better to wait until we have our final decision for the future branch for 1.3.x and do all changes around the filter UI in one step.
