On the kanban board there is a link at the bottom of each lane that allows the user to create a new issue in that lane.
When a lane has many issues some scrolling is required.
The create button:
- although accessible, only created tickets in the first state of the workflow. It would be good to have a drop down on the create button to select the lane in which the new ticket will appear.
Also, is this the correct forum for feature requests? Many apologies if that is not the case.
@Andrew Quinan Welcome to the community!
This is not a great idea to create issue in different lanes. Reason being it will cause disruption in your workflow.
But nobody is stopping you to do this. Take a look at this response to this question and you will have better idea - https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Core-questions/Can-I-set-the-initial-status-of-an-issue-for-a-specific-board/qaq-p/224428

DPD J thank you for your quick response.
Our workflow has an initial state for tickets 'in refinement' (without a backlog) to provide visibility for all tickets. This works better than a separate backlog for our lean methodology. As such, when we find defects and tasks needing immediate action we like the option of creating tickets in the 'ready' lane. As there is already a link in each lane for creating tickets in each state (but at the bottom of the lane) we thought having the create button allow the same functionality would make for a better user experience.
At the very least having a button/icon in each lane header would also provide this.
I kind of got your idea, but I think this will fall more in feature request category.
On side note, if you can bring status/field mapped to 'ready' lane on create screen and configure create transition in workflow to allow those statuses, you will be able to create issue in this 'ready' lane.
Hope this helps.
Jira is a powerful tool that helps teams to plan, manage, and report on their work. We love using Jira, especially for its ability to track issue progress. But how to monitor the...
