Can the resolution field be editable in details view?

Hi there,

In the details view of a closed issue, is it possible to have the resolution field editable on the spot like priority, assignee etc. That way I can change the value to 'not a defect' instead of using 'fixed', without having to reopen it to do so and then closing it again.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Your answer depends on the wokflow selected for your project. I think the default for the GH Simplified Workflow I use has a setting that once an Issue is closed it's uneditable, but you can fix that by changing that setting and re-indexing. Whether or not you want to do that depends on your comfort level with that and the amount of issues you have in your project. It can be a little tricky to figure out, but if it saves you a lot of needless clicking it should be worth spending a little time on it now.
