When I am creating a new ticket or viewing a ticket, I would like to be able to move it to the top of the Project's backlog. Is this possible? Currently I have to finish creating the ticket, then move to the backlog and move it to the top from there.

Hi @Kate Morin,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Currently you cannot move the issue to the top of the backlog while creating/viewing it. The reason is that the issue do not keep a reference to which board it is on, a board is basically just a filter and that is how the issues ends up on the board.

Hello @Kate Morin 

Unfortunately, I dont think there is a way to do that when creating/viewing a ticket. :(

OTOH, if you are on the backlog view, you can use keyboard shortcuts,  s+t to move a ticket to the top quickly.
