Disable required vote description

Martijn ten Caat February 14, 2024

Hi there, I want users to be able to votes for an idea on our project. So I used the field type Votes, when adding a vote Jira asks for a Description, I don'n want that, I want users to just say "Yes, I want this" without having the hassle to make a reason.

Hi @Martijn ten Caat ,

Thanks for your feedback, we'll be sure to share it with engineering. Feel free to share it as well within your JPD under the Give feedback tab.

As for some sort of a workaround (since required-description part of the vote field option cannot currently be disabled), you could create some sort of reaction field where users can provide a thumbs up, thumbs down, etc. with just a click of a button. This is somewhat similar to the vote option provided with Jira and JSM:
