Assignee field doesn't show if no current assignee Edited

On the new JIRA issue view, when I click on a story in the current sprint which is not assigned to anyone, the assignee field doesn't appear, so I can't assign it to someone unless I view the full story. I can't see a way of adding it in!Screen Shot 2017-12-18 at 09.32.44.pngScreen Shot 2017-12-18 at 09.32.54.png

Hey @Bethan Bolton – there were some issues with the assignee field that was affecting some customers in the new issue view yesterday that have since been resolved.

Also, if you have any feedback on the new issue view feel free to click the "Give feedback" button in the top right. We read this daily and use this to inform what we build and improve next.

Hi Kai - thanks for letting me know!

Have you tried to click on the three dots in the upper right corner and select assign ...

Hi, this issue is now resolved - I'm not sure whether it just resolved itself but I can see "unassigned" in the view again now.
