How to create, edit, save, and delete forms

Only Jira and project admins (or users with project admin permissions) can create, edit, and delete forms.

Create a form

Forms can be created directly from your Jira Work Management project. When you create a form, you can choose the (issue) type for when people submit the form as a work item to your project. This means that you can choose the type of work that your form collects, which will change the type of work item that’s created when that form is submitted to your project. Each type will have different form fields depending on what kind of information you want to collect.

Your project will only show other (issue) types if you have more than one type for your project.

To create forms for your business project:

  1. Select Forms from the left navigation.

  2. Select Create form from the center of the page if you’re creating a form for the first time. If your project already has forms created, select Create form from the top right of where all the other existing forms sit in your business project.

  3. If your business project has more than one (issue) type, you’ll be prompted to select what type you’d like for your form. The fields in the form will differ depending on which type you select. This means that when someone submits a form, it will be turned into that type of work item.

  4. Drag the fields to be in the order you’d like for your form.

  5. Customize the text in the field by selecting the field label.

  6. Select Preview to see how your form will look.

  7. Your form is now ready to edit, share, or use.
