Creating Issues

Aside from importing issues from your task tracker, you can also create them in Ducalis. This method allows you to use Ducalis without task tracker integrations. Even when you have a task tracker integrated, you can create issues in Ducalis that you can send to your task tracker to work on them after prioritization.

How to Create an Issue

 All the issues you create are kept in a prioritization board. On your dashboard, create a board by clicking on New board, or choose any existing board you want to add issues.

In the board, you can create issues:

  1. By clicking on the Add issue button.
  2. Inside the table – In-line issue creation
  3. Use the keyboard shortcut alt/opt + n.

Creating an Issue from the New Issue Button

  1. You can create a new issue by clicking on the orange button labeled Add issue located in the top-right corner of the board. 
  2. A new empty row will appear, and you can start to fill in the details of the issue you want to create.

In-line Issue Creation

Filling In the Details of the Issue

    • Name – give your issue a name that is clear and easy to understand. 
    • Issue type – you can assign an “issue type” to your issues, to help your team understand what kind of work the issues fall under.

    • Status – add the progress status of the issue. You can create a new one or even change the color code assigned to an existing status.

    • Attachments – To the issue’s description, you can add attachments to give the issue more context. Drag’n’drop, or copy-paste, your attachments to the issue description field.

Note:  there is no “Save” button because everything is automatically saved as you edit.
