Add custom text to transition screen Edited

Alright, after reading up all of the suggestions from the Question form (which sadly, are a bit dated, most many years ago), I am asking for your help.


Should be fairly easy, but not really quite catching it!


I created a custom screen for entering a comment when transitioning a task to Blocked status. I would like to add a text that Reads "Please state the reason why this task is blocked".

In the future I would like to make it all dandy looking with status options, but for the moment this will do.

However, I got to achieve only this:

Blocked - Jira - Vivaldi 2021-05-10 16.40.45.png


Anyone can help me make it a little bit more descriptive? Maybe default text on the comment box, or a label? I'm looking around but not really finding my North.


Thanks a lot in advance!

You could add a Message Custom Field (for edit) above the Comment field that have the description you want. The field support both HTML and Markdown code.

Thank you @Mikael Sandberg ! I will try this.

One more question: Do you know why I can't delete tasks the same way I delete Jira issues? I am the owner of the board btw.


Thanks again!
