As of two weeks ago, the Jira user interface changed slightly so it looks like there was a software update. Ever since that time, I am no longer able to assign tasks/stories to users on my project team. I was able to do before. Now, the only person I can assign to a task is myself. There is no drop-down that appears as I begin typing a user name, as before. Any assistance would be appreciated.
I found out that the problem had nothing to do with permissions.
It appears that the last Jira update that happened about 3 - 4 weeks ago took away the ability to assign stories/tasks to users from the Backlog. Now, the only way it can be done is through "Issues". It takes a lot of extra time to open each issue to assign resources when it could previously be done from the Backlog screen. Hope this makes sense.
Is there an awareness that this functionality was taken away?
