Hi Angela, first of all welcome! I was in the same spot as you a little more than a year ago ;) There's a lot of docs and a lot of help in AA so don't worry in a couple of months you will be almost an expert on JIRA...
Now to the point, I don't think having the same field on different tabs will be a possibility since it will be worthless, even if you have the possibility to do that the field only can contain one value so I don't see the point of having this...
Additional info: for example, I'm creating a JIRA ticket called 'Publication Startup' which contains 6 tabs with specific fields. In 4 of those tabs, I've got to add State/Province, Region & Country drop downs. I have added them to the 1st tab, but when I go to the 2nd tab, these fields aren't showing in the list of Fields to add. Totally confused on how to make this happen.
None that I know of. A field wil be on the screen once. Once it's selected it disappears from the list of available fields. Also, some types of fields will appear in defined places in the issue view screen. e.g. Dates, users. Might be able to hack something in jquery but not advisable.
I'm a beginner to JIRA. My manager dropped it into my lap without any training or know how, so I'm flying by the seat of my pants to create issues. Modeling the same data. Screen Scheme for specific issues - I'm creating 8 different issues / tickets for a project all using some of the same fields.
Well first thing is don't panic! There's lots of help here and we're generally quite happy to help someone new.
If you wanted, you could use different screens for different issue types
If the address fields you want to add to the 4 tabs are the same address, then you can only have them on one tab, they will have to get used to that. Maybe seperate it out to it's own tab called Address.
If the 4 tabs refer to 4 different addresses, you could create multiple address custom fields. e.g. State1, Region1, Country1, State2, Region2, Country 2. etc
There's a lot of information here:
