Filter out users who have not been assigned to features/master features

In Features Workflow and Master Features Workflow, exclude users who are not assigned to any features or master features.  This also would apply to the "Assigned to User" filter when it is added to the workflow board; exclude all users who have not been assigned.  Including users who will never have anything to show just clutters the page and causes distraction and extra work.

    Thank you for the idea. Currently you can filter out users by clicking Configure Board and deselecting users who should not be shown in the board. The users who should show in the board but don't have anything assigned to them are still shown to help you easily see who has capacity to take on new work. 

    Based on the option to hide users outlined above we are unlikely to implement this idea at this time.

    What about Viewers? It wouldn't make sense to assign something to a viewer if they cannot do anything.  Would it?  Are there use cases where you want to assign work to someone who has no ability to edit, comment, or create to-dos?

    Hi Tom, you could definitely remove them using the Configure Board option. Some customers may assign features to Viewers or Reviewers to allow assignee to sync with the JIRA integration. There may be other use cases but that is one I am definitely aware of.

    I can remove them from the board but they still show up in filters.  Thanks.
