Using Standard Issues

Previous Next

Standard issues can be used during issue creation to auto populate certain fields on the issue and streamline the creation process.  Standard issues are normally defined on an Item Master that is used to group the standard issues under a common category.  For example, all electrical standard issues can be defined under and Item Master called Electrical.   At a minimum, the issue description will be auto populated if the user selects a standard issue.   The party responsible for resolving the issue and the speciality are two other fields that may be defined on the standard issue and auto populated on the issue.
