I created a custom field "Effort" to record the expected number of days a task is expected to require. I would like now all new project to have this "Effort" field within the issue creation page, how can I do that?
Thank you for the help,
Take a look here for some answers : https://support.atlassian.com/jira-cloud-administration/docs/add-a-custom-field-to-a-screen/
Basically, you have to create a screen scheme where your create screen by default displays that field.
That screen should exist by default when you create a project. You can just change the screen for a project and reuse that screen scheme for all your new project :)
Let me know if it helped you.
To go to project settings, you need to clic on your project and clic the cog on the left side, bottom corner. Then you will have the summary tab on the left list. You can access all the schemes/screens of your project here.
On your second screenshot, you have a list of screen scheme. One of them (I don't know which one because I don't know the name of your project) is assigned to your project. You can click on the name of the issue type screen scheme linked to it on the middle column.
Then you will have a list of the issue type screen schemes linked to the project. You may find the task you want to add the field in. There must be a create screen somewhere.
I suggest you take a look here : https://support.atlassian.com/jira-cloud-administration/docs/manage-screen-schemes/
to understand how to add a field to your screen.
Once you've done it, you will only need to use the modified project as a model to create your future projects ;)
ok so you won't need the page I sent you.
I did not know but your project is indeed a Next-gen which works a bit differently. You need to go in project settings/issue types and create directly your new field on the right.
You won't be able to use the Next gen project with all the specifities you just set because it is not possible to use a next gen project as a template to create a new project. To do that, you must use a classic project. You will be able to add a field from the method I explained above :)
