What issue types is your IT team using?

I'm curious what kind of issue types people are using other than the standard four.

I know there's no limit to it, but is it best practice to keep it simple? Any downside to having too many?

It really depends on the team. We make up issue types as needed. Some examples:

Server Build

Workstation Deploy

Employee Onboarding

Employee Offboarding

Server Refresh


Support Request




You can make the issues types that work for you depending on the needs of the team/project. 


We're using "what ever we need".  Incident, bug, request, improvement, new starter, holiday request, question, sales call, the list is endless.
