...  Up to 10

As you can see this gets really ugly really fast.  especially if you want to add a description to each field. Especially if you want a description or use the built ins like User picker which always give you a description.

I know Confluence has tables,  but then how do we pull it back in to include in our dashboard metrics?

There must be a better way!   

The thought of manually going in and creating 30 new custom fields,  configuring them, adding defaults, adding them to the screens,  adding required setting to get rid of None on the radio button....     And this is our sandbox server,  everything will have to be repeated, on the production server.

Thoughts,  suggestions?   And  a plugin won't work.  We have already purchased a number of plugins and management is getting tired of us telling them "you can get what you want,  you just have to buy the plugin"

I would create a sub-task for each person.

Thanks for the reply,   That doesn't really work, we need the data to be available for filters in sorting at the parent level.

I have just done it the manual painful way..
