Hi @David Reynolds

Welcome to the community!

You can use Jira Cloud for Outlook add-in which is developed and supported by Atlassian. Once you add it to your Outlook account, it should appear everywhere (Outlook WEB app, Outlook for Desktop, Outlook for Android).

This add-in will help you to create issues from Outlook and attach the original email to the issue, you can also send emails to existing issues, view issue details from Outlook, leave comments on issues, and many more.

I am using the Jira Cloud for Outlook add-in and do have the ribbon panel in Outlook for Desktop.  I do not see any Jira tools within the Outlook application (v4.2041.3) of my Android device.

@David Reynolds it's quite hidden in Android. Here you can find documentation about how to use add-ins in Outlook for Android.

To access add-in on Android you need to open an email, click on the three-dots menu, and then swipe up to see all available actions (similar to a ribbon on Outlook desktop).

Here are a few screenshots:

Let me know if this helps.

@Vitalii Saienko thank you for the clarification.  I was very close but never thought to swipe up from the three dot selection within the email.  Swiping up does provide me access to various plug-ins.

I'm glad that it worked for you!

Now that I have found the "New Issue", "Add to Issue", and "Related Issues" buttons, I am not experiencing issues with the add to issue option.

When selecting the New Issue button, the application functions as expected.  When selecting the Add to Issue option, I see a blank white screen with the small blue spinning circle.

@David Reynolds it seems like "New Issue", "Add to Issue", and "Related Issues" buttons are related to Outlook Email for Jira app. It's not our official app. Jira Cloud for Outlook is the one developed by Atlassian.

If you have any troubles with Outlook Email for Jira app (developed by Yasoon), please reach out to their support.

Hi @David Reynolds 

@Vitalii Saienko  is right. It looks like this is our app. 

We will check this and get back to you asap.

Cheers, 

Patrick
