Similar Issues in YouTrack 5.0: Just Avoid Duplicates
Please welcome a brand new YouTrack 5.0 feature called Similar Issues. Today we’ll give you more reasons to check the latest YouTrack 5.0 EAP if you haven’t tried it already!
Similar Issues gives you all the relevant issues based on issue summary and description found across all the projects. It is available whenever you create a new issue, edit an issue or simply browse the FIS (full issue screen).
How does it work?
As soon as you start entering a new issue summary or description, YouTrack starts searching for similar issues, using the same powerful text search available across the system. YouTrack offers similar issues based on matches in the summary and description in all the projects. It sorts the results by relevance, assigning more relevance to issues in the same project.
How can Similar Issues help you in your tracking process?
First, your external reporters will create fewer duplicates. Seeing existing similar issues right on the new issue form, as they enter a new issue summary and description, will save their time and effort as well as yours.
Second, it can help your internal users to process issues, by showing relevant issues on a brand new tab on the FIS (full issue screen) called Similar issues. Now you don’t need to search for a similar feature request or bug already reported in the system. Simply open the Similar Issues tab and link the relevant issues in any way you need.
By the way, when you edit issue summary or description, Similar Issues are automatically recalculated after the changes are submitted. This way you get even more relevant similar issues based on the latest information.
Similar Issues are ready to go and already included in the latest YouTrack 5.0 EAP build. We hope this cool feature will help you enjoy issue tracking even more, and prevent your users from creating hundreds of duplicates, thus keeping your tracker clean(er).
