Schedule drop-down list is missing for adding new version

Hello All

Adding new version of specific project has been changed in a way that there is no more option 'Schedule' ( drop-down list ) to place it at desired location. In case that list of projects is very long then available method 'You can drag the new version to a different possition by hovering over the drag icon ...' is not useful.

Is it possible with some setting to have it back 'Schedule' drop-down list ?

Our previous Jira was 4.3.4 ( in manual on page 352 you can see instruction have to do it ), while in the latest 6.2.3 there is no such option ( official manual page 537 ).

Thank you for your feedback.

Hi Milan,

The Managing Versions screen has been changed since JIRA 4.4, as you can see in the document below:

Unfortunately, it is not possible to send a version to the top or bottom anymore in a single click since JIRA 4.4 - only by dragging it and dropping it on the position you want.

If you believe this change in the UI might be a problem for ordering and managing your versions, you may vote on the improvement below, which I believe would help in your scenario, to increase its visibility with development:

You can also report a new JAC at for this feature back, but unless many people also vote requesting on such feature back, the likelyhood of having it implemented is very low.

I hope the inforamtion above helps.
