You can now create issue templates for Backlog

When you’re repeatedly creating similar issues, it’s nice to have a template. Templates ensure each issue contains the same information in the same structure. With our new issue templates feature, you can use the issue type selector to create an issue from a template of your choice. Once selected, the summary and description of the issue will automatically populate.

This feature is only available for Standard, Premium, and Platinum plans.
