Members of the org are using Phab for track many types of tasks - some that I have seen are: Features, Bugs, Stories, Goals, and Epics.
Moreover we will track multiple types of tasks within the same project (Feature/Bug/Epic comes to mind).
It would be good if we had a field to support these different task types.
Having task types would allow us to:
- Represent types differently on project boards (think different colors, different sizes, styling)
- Filter for a specific type of task in search (I am just looking for bugs)
- Support different fields for different task types (Bugs have a field for "Steps to Reproduce", but features do not. Features have "story points", goals do not)
A good concrete example of this request is JIRA issues:
This may be a prerequisite for T92708 which aims to support specific fields for bug reporting.
