External issue:


Saying we use “System” issue custom fields of the list type with values: “Redmine” and “ChiliProject” (I really do use such field). For some reason users are unlikely to specify value for this field unless it is required (I know this because they don’t! Too often.)...

I also planned to add the very similar custom field for users... So why not taking values for custom fields of new issues from similar users’ custom fields when they create issues?..

The algo should be:
  • For each custom field:
    • If there is a user custom field of the same name , type and same options
      • Copy value

This should be done on loading of new issue form so users could change values...
