How can set up automatic assignee using simplified workflow

Hi there,


I've noticed that if I use simplified workfow for agile projects, when a user drags a task from To Do to any other status the task doesn't autoassing to him. Is there anyway to activate this kind of behaviour?


Thank you

In those transitions of this workflow you would need to add a post function to set the assignee to the current user (e.g. use %%CURRENT_USER%% macro from JIRA Suite Utilities). That's how you could do it.
