I might be overthinking this.
Imagine that I create an issue and we have a discussion about implementation.
We then decide that we do not need to do anything and the issue can be closed.
What is the best way forward here? Marking it as Done seems wrong. Deleting it means losing the discussion. How can we close it as "suspended" or "not implementing" or similar?
This is my workflow (default):
It is not clear!
I also don't like the fact that it sorts the items A - Z. I want The order there is correct but when I have an issue on screen and go to change the status In Review shows before In Translation.
Hello @ChuckieAJ ,
You can add a resolution while closing the ticket.
Please check the link for more info on "Resolutions" --> https://confluence.atlassian.com/cloudkb/best-practices-on-using-the-resolution-field-968660796.html
Hi @ChuckieAJ - we actually add a couple of different statuses to our workflows for this scenario. One is Discarded for when we decide not to do the work before we even start it. Another is Aborted where we decide not to finish the work already started.
Both statuses have a Done status category to them. We set the Resolution as Obsolete using a Post Function on the transitions to each of those statuses.
Sure - this is a very basic one, but you will get the idea.
This on doesn't have Abandon in it, but it would work the same way as Aborted.
With Abandon, I also have an Automation Rule that clones the issue and places it in the backlog. But you could make the Abandon status just a To Do category and not Done category. Then place the Abandon status in the backlog column in the board.
Were you using Classic projects I would say to use the Resolution for this. It appears you are using NG in which case you don't (yet) have Resolutions (JSWCLOUD-17499). You could create a drop down custom field in NG and select your resolution. As I recall there are challenges with multiple 'done category' statuses in NG but it has been a few weeks since I looked at this. There might be a better way but I don't use NG so can't say for sure.
Not sure what you mean by FAQ. You might search the documentation as NG is changing rapidly. I would not recommend deleting these issues. IMO, having the history of issues you decided not to do and why is valuable. I think marking them as done is fine TBH as being "done" doesn't necessarily mean "fixed" or "implemented" but rather the issue is deemed to be address which "won't do decision" certainly falls under. However, a drop down field would allow you to create metrics which is nice.
