Today's Changelog brings you sorting improvements, the ability to select a template or form when creating a new issue from your project and adding a new option to a single select field from the side panel!

🗄 Improvements to sorting fields

You can now sort items in a view using two different fields. Select Sort by in the view menu and select a primary sort field, and then hold down Alt (Option on MacOS) to select the secondary sort field.

Accessing issue templates in Projects

When creating a new issue directly from a project, you can now choose an issue template or form to apply.

Simply use the + button in the project omnibar and select Create new issue to get started.

Adding a new single-select field option from the side panel

We've updated the side panel so that you can add a new option when editing a single-select field. Start typing and you'll be prompted to add a new option if the text doesn't match an existing option.
