From the introduction to the Suggestions and Requests category (click on the Sparx Systems Forum link in the path under the menu band):

'Suggest and discuss, with other users, features you would like to see added to Enterprise Architect. It would be helpful to discuss only one feature per thread. To submit a feature request directly to Sparx Systems, please use the Feature Request link provided.'

That means, you the users talk amongst yourselves and see whether any of you have any suggestions on the issue being raised, and/or agree that there is support for a feature to be requested. Then you use the proper channel for submitting the feature request to Sparx Systems. Some of the Sparx employees join in the chat on this users' forum, but that is no guarantee that they are the right people to respond on any point, or that their responses are commitments to forward or act on any points that you raise. We simply join in to be helpful (or not!) in the same way as any user does, and with the same caveat - "Don't quote me on this..."

To officially contact Sparx and expect a formal response, submit a bug report or feature request, or send an email to Sparx Support or Sparx Sales.

As my very first message on this thread said.  I did that and got no where, so I am hoping to Spark (get it) interest this way.  The official way was tried first.  If you are telling me it is a complete waste of time to post to this forum, I will just delete the thread.

I am not interested in debating the context of this forum, but since that seems to be the biggest interest in this subject, so should I just not use this forum for getting others to speak up?  Kind of make the whole forum pointless.


What are you expecting from a USER forum?

Since this USER forum is for Suggestions and Requests I am hoping the USERS make enough noise to get the attention of the SPARX folks that are hopefully looking at the thing.  Would not make a whole lot of sense if they aren't.

No one else having this issue???

Suggestions and Requests / Re: A Value Stream diagram is needed.

No other interest in a value stream diagram?????

Cricket's...  Nothing... Just crickets... :-\

I contacted help and the only answer I got was that support for Visual Studio 2015 is not on the radar at all.  Is there any new news on this?

Work Item integration is an absolute necessity if you expect businesses that use TFS to use EA for requirements management.  VS & TFS 2015 and Visual Studio Team Services (was Visual Studio Online) is what everyone I work with is using and new projects can't use Sparx because of the lack of Work Item integration.

The current Value Chain diagram in EA is ok, but business users go to it thinking it is a value stream diagram.  I have had several people contact me looking for a value stream diagram that have landed on your value chain diagram and have been confused and frustrated.

Thanks for the reply.  I tried both versions.  Blows that it can't be improved, but I get it.  Visio has always been a pain in the butt.

Suggestions and Requests / Visio Importer needs serious help

I don't use Visio, but 95% of my business users do, and 100% for them use it for flowcharts.

I cannot believe the Visio importer does not import flowcharts correctly.  It turns all flowchart elements into text boxes, seriously?

This is something that Sparx seriously needs to work on.  No, not flowcharts...  imports from Visio period.

The rest of the imports stink too.  I spent the morning playing with them.

I cannot convert an organization that has used Visio forever to Sparx if they cannot move their work smoothly.

You need to build a way to see all the links between all the templates and there fragments visually.

Just a simple class diagram that shows the relationships.

A large bonus would being able to also see the attributes on the fragments and what they have enabled.

I had a very hard time getting people to work with the old system.  I am not even going to try with this system until it is more transparent and user friendly.

It has been made way too complex, but some reporting capability and visual representation could fix that, and actually make it powerful.  That is what I think you were trying to do.

When can we expect to see Visual Studio MDG Integration for Visual Studio 2015?  We are about to kick off a new project and would like to use it for linking with TFS Work Items.

If that is too much work, how about just an email subscription list that you could notify us through?

How about this second sentence?

I love SPARX, but the update process is very painful.  We have to come looking for new releases.  If you made these forums, or at least the What's New forum available through a feed, it would make life easier.

If that is too much work, how about just an email subscription list that you could notify us through?

Suggestions and Requests / Stereotypes on Requirements/Feature diagrams
« on: January 13, 2006, 03:19:01 pm »
I would like the stereotypes I apply to features and requirement to show up on the diagrams, instead of just on the project view tree and in the generated rtm as text.

We want a visual reprentation of the stereotype on the diagram.

The only thing that shows up is and E or a F, but not the steriotype you apply to it.

Is there a way to get the actual stereotype you apply to the features and requirements to show up on them?
