    Hi guys, as stated before, this add-on can save a huge amount of time in certain use cases. Good job! Question: Coming from the quick view of an issue in an agile board, using the burger button in the top right corner does include your add-on menu entry "Create multiple Sub-Tasks". However, the screen for subtask creation does not provide using templates. When I come from the issue detail view I do have the dropdown for templates. Any chance to fix/implement this? Regards, Chris

    Hi Christopher,

    thanks for your kind feedback! The problem with JIRA Agile boards should have been fixed with release 4.6.2 (just released). Please feel free to update to this version and leave a note if you encounter any other issues in the project's issue tracker here.

    Best regards,

    This plug-in is a big time saver. I especially like the new feature to assign custom fields for a Select List (single choice) in version 4.6.0. With this new enhancement, I no longer have to edit the sub-tasks after I create them. Highly recommended!

    While this does create tasks, custom fields and other areas are hard to configure. I tried pulling in the acceptance criteria, and component in from the partent and it would not pull that in. The only thing that seem to work was pulling the assignee in.

    I really like how powerful this is: it has a lot of potential. However I can't get people beyond the user interface. Templates are unreadable/uneditable. It really cries out for some sort of formatting in the editting window, or at least a wider window.
