Idea Template

Is there a way to create a template in the idea description?

I note in the original Atlassian video showing the Product Discovery platform you have what appears to be a template in there, that closely aligns to the one we currently use.

I had a look in issue configuration but dont see the idea issue type appear for configuration and was unable to find it in any of the other usual places.

If it does not exist currently, this would be really nice to save copy and pasting it onto each issue.

Thanks! This is helpful! 

Hope emoji's will be added someday, but this is just a nice to have! ;) 

Emojis where @stessier ?

oooh gotcha. 

Have you tried this? (type a colon, then you can search by typing more text)

aaaaaand it looks like that doesn't work in the template editor. We'll look into it!

Hi everyone, I was just about to create a post in the community to announce that you could start using idea description templates today, and bam, I found a blocker bug while recording a demo 🥶

So I'll revert to: "It's coming really soon!"

This is so exciting! I'm really loving the direction JPD is going. This is yet another example of exactly the kind of feature that my team is going to love.

I made a template in Confluence and I copy/paste it every time I create a new Idea. 

However, I would prefer set it in the configuration panel, and have it automatically when I create the idea. 

Hey @Jeremy West ,

Best way I can think to achieve this right now would be via automation.

  • When issue is created
  • Add X detail to issue description

Alternatively, you could componentise your template into individual fields, use my answer to How to best transfer info from Jira Service Management (Feedback) to Jira Product Discovery (Ideas) to build a form to capture all ideas on a template and combine them into the description field in JPD.

Although I will cross my fingers for you and hope you have spotted an as yet unreleased feature the JPD team are working on :D


Also, you could potentially create a "Template" Idea by simply making an idea contain the templated description, then "Cloning" or "Duplicating" that idea, instead of creating the idea each time.
