Add a text message to transition screen

How can I add a text message to show up on transition screen?


I would like to add a message "Make sure you have inserted the time spent in to Tempo!"


I have tried adding a custom field but they are all input fields, none of them displays a preset message.

Hi @Magdalena Pavlović welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Insert a validator in the transition to make the Time Spent field required (>0). Put your message as error message.

Hi @Dave Mathijs , Thanks!

This unfortunately will not work for us. We have some issues that move back trough the workflow so we sometimes have issues that already have time spent >0

As an alternative, what you could do is create a read-only custom text field and add that field to the transition screen.

I have created a custom field as shown on the prtsc but it opens an input field, it does not simply show a message.

Should I select a different field type?

@Magdalena Pavlović 

Actually, it's the Message Custom Field (for edit), my apologies.

@Dave Mathijs Still just an input box

Perhaps it would be easier to add a time spent field so they can add time spent directly here if they need to?

You need to set a default value for your Message Custom Field.

Thad did add a text to it but I still have the comment box

The comment box is always added to a transition screen by default. Personally, I would add the Log Work field to the transition screen as well.

There is no way to hide or remove it? 

We are using Tempo for time tracking and I do not see an option to add Tempo as a field.

The comment box appears when the user has permissions to comment on the issue.  You could turn that off at a status level, or just completely remove it.
