Outlook Plugin: "Create Issue" to send directly to Kanban Board

Is there a way to select to add an Issue directly to a Kanban Board in when creating a new issue in the Outlook plug-in?

Or even an automation/workflow that can be made to send the new issue directly to a board? 

EVERY Issue I create from an email I move to a project kanban board. I forget to go to my Backlog and select to move it to my board [because I'm under the influence of multitasking].

Hi John - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

What type of project is it? 

You can probably create an Automation For Jira Rule that auto-transitions the issue from the Backlog status to the next status in your workflow when it is created. 

Its a "Team-managed" project (formerly known as a "Next Gen" project, I believe).

That might be a little tougher because the of the way the workflows happen.

Here's some info to get you started with Automation:

There are two types of automation:

  • Global: In the Free version, you get 100 executions per product, per month
  • Project: In all versions, you get unlimited executions per month

Automation Basics:

You can do this via global rules to apply to all projects also. You'll need to be a Jira Admin/Site Admin, go to Jira Settings > System > Automation Rules (left-hand menu).

For more on using Automation For Jira see these help pages.
