Development notes

We are absolutly newbies using JIRA.

We are looking for writing down developming notes related to issues that aren't prepared to be a Task or Bug... We are tagging these as developming notes. They are something related to reminders. Later, these reminders are going to turned to several Task- Bugs, and so on...

Any ideas?

You could create a "note" issue type, and use it in the same project, or even have a dedicated project for creating development notes outside the main projects.  Or use an existing type ("Story" sounds like a candidate) and label them with "development notes".  Or create a "note" sub-task issue type if you know they're always going to belong to another story that isn't a task or a bug.

The one recurring theme in those suggestions is that you put them into JIRA as some form of issue - you can change their issue type, and/or move them, and/or create sub-tasks on them later on when you get to turning them into actual tasks/bugs etc. 

If you do do it with an issue type, you can keep the "note" one really simple, just having summary and description, and then ask the users to fill in other fields when they're converted into tasks or bugs.

Wat @nic brough said, or also Confluence could be of value. Create a page there, collect notes from team, create task later.

If these are related to a story then I would recommend adding comments to the story or if they are general technical backlog items, I would recommend creating a story that will have these comments in it
