    Issue is created.

  5. Navigate to newly created template. In General section complete:

    a. Template name. When you create a new template, we configure its name by copying the issue summary. You can change the name, however if left empty, it will fallback to the issue summary. When you browse templates in a select drop-down you will see template names.

    b. Make template selectable enables the template to be selectable directly in the projects defined in ‘Availability’ tab.

    If you switch Make template selectable toggle to off, template would be applied only as an issue linked to an epic template (for project selected in Availability tab).
    c. In the field Scope there is a scope set for default in the Scopes page. Now you can change the scopes for this template.

    d. Switch Copy Sub-tasks to on if you want to copy Sub-tasks in the template or keep it off if not.


    If you need more information check the Copy sub-tasks.
