improve the "Add CI's" dialogs

The "Add CI's" dialog shows up in each ticket, problem, change, and release.


It looks like this



I find it difficult to use in the following ways:

  • finding the appropriate CI since there are so many default (and unchangeable) categories. 
  • The search only searches in the category you've selected.
  • Searching works a little better when you pick the top most category in a hierarchy, but tt's not immediately obvious which category is the top most.

However, there's another dialog for associating CIs that works a lot quicker. this shows up when:
  • creating/linking a new problem from a ticket, 
  • creating/linking a new change from aticket
  • creating/linking a new change from a problem, 
  • creating/linking a new release from a change,

It looks like this:


With this you can very quickly starting typing the CI and find it. It's so easy!


Several ideas on how to improve the "Add CIs" functions


  • Make the current search box search all items, not just the category you've selected.
  • Add something like the "Add CIs" search box on the create and link screen.
