The field "Issue Type" is abbreviated in most issue lists (or issue navigator) as "T". The "Priority" field is abbreviated as "P". But when you're on a form (such as Create Issue), the label for the field is the full name.
I have a custom field called "Priority Order" which contains numeric values up to 2 digits and is therefore very narrow. However, when displayed in a list (for example, in a dashboard, or in a filter) the header takes a lot of space to fit the words "Priority Order" and I end up with a very wide column with a lot of blank. I'd like to show an abbreviation for the column header ("PO" for example).
Can I do this?
I have 2 comments for Jira...
1) I've searched extensively for existing info on this question, and didn't find any. Then clicking on the link provided by Timoty, it asked me to register my account. Fine for me. But does this means the ticket tracking for Jira is only readable with an account? Therefore, google can't index it? I might be wrong, I've not verified this. But it's not ideal.
