Creating an issue

To create more issues at a time, see the article about our import feature.

With JExcel you can create an issue like you would do in Excel.

The very first step of creating an issue is to make sure to enable Add new rows on the top right panel .

If it is enabled, you can see the issue creation row.

The second step is to make sure that all the mandatory columns (fields) are selected.

Mandatory fields are:

  • Issue Type
  • Summary
  • Project

If any of these columns is not selected, you can add them like this:

  • Open the Columns panel the right upper corner 
  • Use the search box to find the right column name 
  • Select the column you want to add by clicking in the checkbox 

When these are ready, you will have 3 options to create an issue

  • Press the button "INS"
  • Open row menu with the right-mouse click on a row and select Create sub-task option
  • Start filling out the fields and click on the + icon in the beginning of the row

When creating an issue, you can specify the following field values:

  • Issue Type
  • Parent Issue
  • Summary
  • Assignee
  • Reporter
  • Priority
  • Project

After filling out the Summary column and hit Enter, the issue is created.
