can you modify a task that is in progress

Once task is in progress can the activities in the task be modified, or does the progress need to be stopped and edits made outside of the process running?

Hi @Rebecca Bickett,

  1. JIRA is fully fledged software, in which you always have options to customize your configuration.
  2. You can configure your screen(create/edit/view) to modify activities while performing workflow transition.
  3. You can have a pop-up screens on different transitions to modify/change the activities.
  4. Also you can completely restrict editing issues once it is created.






Hey Rebecca,

                     You can always edit the issue if you have edit permission which can be configured in Project Administration under Permission Scheme.

You can certainly modify a task when it is in progress. Why would you want to prevent editing in the first place? It makes sense to stop editing once a task is closed.
