Please change "Page Size" so that you can see "All" issues.

For 1.2,

For earlier,

"All" will let you use the filter function that is available on the column header.  

 

Please refer to the URL below for more details.

Thanks,"All" made the filter option available.How about bulk editing? copy pasting is not working for me.

Hi Saarvaani Valamani,

 

For bulk copy & paste, please try taking these two steps below.

1.Choose the selected range by using your keyboard (Shift+Arrow) or using a mouse.
2.After that, Use “Ctrl + C” and “Ctrl + V” on your keyboard.

Could you take a stab at copying and pasting one of the cells by using these steps?

If vou attach a screen shot without moving, it may does help us to understand what you are confused about.

Thank you,

Thank you so much for the quick reply. I was trying to edit the status of the issues from "In progress" to "Done".I guess some fields are locked and not editable.

Besides above,I have 2 more questions smile

  1. I do not see all the columns in the excel. Is there a setting that I am missing?
  2. When I open the plugin from issues page and try to expand the columns,the excel page is getting stuck.Is this a known problem?

Appreciate your help.

 

Dear Saarvaani Vadlamani,

 I was trying to edit the status of the issues from "In progress" to "Done".I guess some fields are locked and not editable.

  • As you noticed, some fields are not editable which their backgrounds are colored gray. "Status" is one of them.

1.I do not see all the columns in the excel. Is there a setting that I am missing?

  • On default setting, it does not show all of columns. When Issue Editor is started from Issue Navigator, only columns which shown in Issue Navigator will be took over.As a result, you need to display the columns on Issue Navigator which you would like to show on Issue Editor. After that, you need to start Issue Editor from “Edit Button” on the tool bar. (However, you cannot use it because next trouble has happened, can you?)

 2.When I open the plugin from issues page and try to expand the columns,the excel page is getting stuck.Is this a known problem?

 

Thank you,
