How to disable Timeline

Post by Zen »

Hello
Thank you for creating Mantis.

The new 'Timeline' feature in Mantis 1.3 is useless for my users (and it takes too much space on the screen)

Is there any way to disable it?

Thank you

There is no configuration option for it.
This is a known feature request https://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=19586
There is a pull requests for it, but it's not good enough to merge it as it is https://github.com/mantisbt/mantisbt/pull/592

@Zen, why is it useless for your users. Are there suggested improvements to make it more useful in your case?

Hello,
sorry to discuss on this really old thread ...
As user on the old version of Mantis and because I need / want the same thing, I'll give my point of view about this timeline.

- I worked as developer on many project for the same company
- all teams share the same mantisBT

In this case, It's hard to "follow" the timeline because :
- it take space of the screen
- If the number of open an unasinged ticket is big you have to scroll a lot
- the display isn't HD ready and event less 4K ready (so many space lost !!)
- it's time consuming
- it's "usless" to see ticket evolution for other teams => colors could be helpfull ?

In my opinion, it could be interesting to apply responsive approach for #unassigned #resolved #recent_mod (but this way will not be managed by php / databases unless the css configuration file will be produced by a php script ...)

I have attached my test
- adding col-lg-4 on #unassigned #resolved #recent_mod div
- adding hidden-lg to "spacer div"
- adding col-lg-9 and col-lg-3 on Ticket container and Timeline container

Since quite a while there is option $g_timeline_view_threshold to disable Timeline.
