I believe this question to be quite generic but we are currently running V5.1.7
When one attempts to create a sub-task the relevant field configuration is prefixed at the top by a dropdown listbox where the user selects the desired sub-task issue type (the project in question has 4).
What I am looking for is some way to manage the initialization of this list. Why? Because the sub-task issue type currently on the bottom of the list is the one used over 80% of the time. The list is not in alphabetical order so I'm guessing it is creation order. FIFO of sorts.
In any case managing the presentation of the sub-task issue types in this dropdown list, i.e., decending popularity, is what I am looking for. As of yet I haven't found any relevant discussion.
That is the GUI presentation order. Rearranging the list using drag and drop had no GUI presentation affect. I also tried removing each of the 4 sub-task issue types, saving, and adding them back to the scheme in the desired order, and obviously saving again. This also failed to have a GUI presentation affect and didn't even affect the listing order when admin viewing "Issue Type Scheme". Kinda sorta looks like a bug.
I was just doing the screen captures to share here and I now see the desired presentation order. System latency? A few days has expired since I saw different behavior.
The listing of the Issue Types in the Issue Type Scheme is still wrong unless editing the scheme, but now that I know about that fubar I can live with it. Attached reflects the fubar but the original problem is solved.
