Screen configuration - Moving a field from the main tab to another tab is a pain


Using Jira 8.3.

  • I have a screen with many fields (50 or so).
  • I created 4 new custom fields and added them to this screen.
  • By default they are added as the last fields in the screen.
  • Now I create a new tab and I want to move the fields to the new tab.

The process:

1. You cannot select multiple fields - you have to move one field at a time - Annoyance #1

2. The tabs only appear on the top of the Configure Screen screen.

3. Moving a field is done by dragging it.

4. However, the dragging stops at the top of the displayed page, so I have to drop the field, scroll the page up and move it again, and repeat this until the top of the page is visible.

5. Only then I can move the field to the desired tab. - Annoyance #2

This is a huge waste of my time. Any open bug on this? Or is there a better way that I'm missing?
