Anyone else having issues with keyboard shortcut for assign and quick operations?

In both Backlog and Active Sprint views, I am having the following issues with keyboard shortcuts:

  • Pressing 'a' on the keyboard does not bring up the Assign Issue prompt
  • Pressing '.' on the keyboard brings up the quick operations but '.' is entered into the field so I have to delete that before typing my quick operation

They are both mild inconveniences, but annoying nonetheless. Anyone having the same issue?

Hi Amanda,

I am having the same problems. I have opened a Support Ticket with Atlassian. You might want to do the same.  :-)

Thanks, John. What's the process for submitting a support ticket? I was trying to find a way to do so, but I only saw the suggestion to post to the community. I must be overlooking something.


Thanks again!
