Edit/change shown text of 'system fields' respectively on project interface


Hello dear community,

during the creation of a new board, we were wondering if there is an option to change the shown text in the marked fields (red circle).

It would be nice to be able to add custom text to personalize and customize the board to the needs of the users.

Steps to recreate:

1. Go to Roadmap

2. Create a new Epic in the Roadmap - Button: "+ Erstellen Bauvorhaben" (create Epic)

3. Text field opens which says: "Was muss gemacht werden?" (What needs to be done?) - type in the summary/title of the epic.


Many thanks in advance for your help and support.

The short answer is no, you cannot change that text, that is predefined by Atlassian and there is no settings that will change it.
