Create Issue

Create a template for fast issue creation. Pre-configure project, issue type, and any field that you would like to pre-fill. When you create an issue just modify the fields that are different from your template.




Create a project shortcut for often-used projects. Each shortcut is displayed with its project icon to make it easily recognizable.
