Assigning an item to a release

When you assign an item to a release, the item appears under the Releases tab, and the action is noted in the version history.


Admins only — You can only use the system predefined Release field to show items in the Releases tab. If you use a custom Release field to designate an item to a release, that item doesn’t appear in the Releases tab.

Before you can assign items to a release, a project or organization admin must first create the release. Once the release is created, you can assign an item to that release in several ways:

  • Locate the release field (if it is visible) in Single Item View or List View and select the release name you want from the drop-down menu.

  • In the List View or Reading View of your project, select the items you want to add to the release. Select the Releases tab at the top of the left panel and drag the items into the release.

  • Use batch update.

  • Use round-trip import and export.
