Where is the Creation date in the new issue view?

Tracy B January 22, 2020

In the new Jira issue view, I can't add the creation date to the screen. One of my workflows uses that data and it's frustrating not to be able to see it on the screen as before.

Hi @Tracy B - On the new issue view, the creation date is listed in the bottom-right corner. Here's a screenshot:

Hope that helps!

Oh my goodness, it's so tiny. I would never have found it. Thanks very much!

@Kevin Bui  Are we able to add custom date and time fields next to the created date and time field?

I don't understand why it is now hidden there, a regression in my opinion!

Furthermore there is still the bug/regression with relative date, in my case it is just written "Create last week" instead of "Created on the 10/05/2023".

Another occurrence of a regression bringing more loss than new design benefits... :( Please don't do like Microsoft: changing design with bugs and regressions, and many versions & years later finally understanding after thousands of complaints and reverting...

This data is visible on each screen by default and you don't need to add it separately.

It's shown under Dates section (right pane, below People pane) and it's called "Created". Depending on system settings you can see there releative (eg. "A few minutes ago", "Yesterday") or absolute ("01/01/2020 11:23) values.

Not on my new issue view screen, it is not.  It does not appear on the right hand pane and it is not listed in the Configure screen for the new issue view. I only see it on the Old view, where there is a Date pane underneath the People pane.
