Add new category on the enter new issue page

Post by jamespharvey20 » Jan 22, 2019 6:33 am

MantisBT 2.19.0, schema 209.

My workflow involves a lot of categories.

If I'm entering an issue on a category that doesn't exist yet, is there a better way to do it than:

* Manage -> Manage Projects -> Project I Want -> (type new category name) & Add Category
* Report Issue

If there's not something I'm missing or a configuration I can change to allow this, would the developers consider modifying the Report Issue page so there was a way to add a new category there, as long as the user has those credentials? Perhaps a new option "Other" that makes an otherwise hidden textbox appear for a new category name. Perhaps just an "Or Fill In" like under Select Profile.
