For reporting purposes, I need to show the status of an issue in my report. Is there a way to setup a custom text field on the main issue screen similar to "Comments" that would facilitate entering this type of information? Thank you!
Yes, go to administration, custom fields, and add a "free text" field.
It won't be sequential like comments, it'll be a single entry, like description, but as you want to show "current status", it's probably better than comments.
There are also a couple of "last comment" fields if you wanted to display that instead.
I'd be hesitant to try to implement another stream of comment-like fields though, it's quite complex and people almost certainly wouldn't care about the difference between comments and the other field.
