Add acceptance criteria to all user stories

I've added acceptance criteria field to some of my user stories manually.

How can I make the field appear by default to all user stories.

Make sure you have an Custom field called Acceptance Criteria and add that to the create/edit/view screen of user story and also in the custom field configuration map the field with the issueType and the related project.

Thanks Tarun,

Perhaps my question wasn't very clear.

Acceptance Criteria field already exists, I don't need to create a custom field.

What I'd like is for it to appear by default when editing a user story, not just when I manually add it to the story.

hi martin,

now sure what you mean when you say -

"What I'd like is for it to appear by default when editing a user story, not just when I manually add it to the story."

you want a default prepopulated value for the field? or you want it to present on the edit screen of the user story issueType?
