How to create workflows for team-managed projects

This page is for team-managed projects

If the lower-left of your project sidebar says you're in a company-managed project, check out this article instead.

Learn how to spot the the difference between company-managed and team-managed projects.

Only project admins can edit workflows in a team-managed project

Multiple workflows help you track different streams or types of work in a project. This is useful if you’re tracking high-level work alongside day-to-day tasks, or if you wish to capture more than one process for work to get done.

In the workflow editor, it’s possible to create a workflow that applies to a single issue type or a combination of issue types.

To create or edit an additional workflow:

  1. From your project's sidebar, select Project settings > Issue types.

  2. Select the issue type > Edit workflow.

  3. Adjust the workflow as needed.

  4. To save your changes, select Update workflow.

  5. From the dropdown, deselect lozenges to specify which issue types the workflow will apply to.

  6. Select Save.
