How to add custom field Text type to issue like Description?


I try to organize agile development in my projects via Youtrack. Under Scrum methodology issues have to have such fields as "How to test", "How to demonstrate". So I try to add custom fields to issues in my project, and I want they look like "Description" field. But I can`t add field with Text type and put it with Description field. Only string type exist and all custom fields are put under Description in one line - it`s not suitable...

How I can do it?

This feature is supported by YouTrack. For this, create a custom field with the type text. Please refer to the Supplemental Text Fields article for more information. Should you have any further questions, feel free to contact us.

Hello Artem,

Unfortunately, text type fields are not supported in "Create issue" form. We have planned implementation of this feature in future versions.

Don't hesitate to contact us, we'll be happy to help.

How's the implementation planning going? ;)

We are also looking into customizing the issue field more and we would i.e. like to add multiple type fields and also configure if they should be required or not.

Any ideas if this is still something that will come in the future?
