Affects and Target version

Dan Hartnack Jan 29, 2012

Is there a generic field like the Affects Version field that can be applied to a project in the same way? I am want to set up another field in a project that is Targeted Version but still uses the same information from the Affects Version field without having to make a custom field and populate with every version of our software.

Depends on how you use "fix version" - some people use it for "this was fixed in" and others "we aim to fix this in". Both approaches have advantages and disadvantages.

Some teams would benefit from a third "target version" as well. If you do, then I recommend that you use "fix version" to say "this was fixed in" and "target version" for, well, um, where you'd like to fix it. This because fix-version feeds into other things like release notes, planning, agile and so-on.

To do this, you can simply add a "version picker" custom field. It will use the same list of versions as affects versions and fix versions automatically...

@Nic, doing what you are suggesting breaks the scrum board and version burndown reports. How do you keep those working AND have Target Version field at the same time?

You can create a custom field of type Version Picker.
