Add new Release from defects when choosing "Detected in Release"

....its really annoying for users that they have to switch to Management to add a new Release....when you're in the middle of creating a defect and the Release doesn't exist it would be so userfriendly it it could be added directly when adding a defect

Hi @Jesper ,

Unfortunately we will have to decline this request as in most cases there are dedicated users that allow to create a new release (so when QA\Dev are submitting new defects they will not have permission to create a release). In addition, this is something that usually done in advance and not "on the fly". Therefore, the probability that we will invest in such a feature is quite low. 




That might be the case for Octane R&D.....but certainly not for our case! Please don't decline this!

We don't prevent certain users to create release as in some areas we have many small release pr. week - being superagile and maintaining many application in same for us it makes a lot of sense!

Why not have the customers of Octane decide if they want to open of for this - seems strange to me to decline usuability - it could even work with permission depending on roles. So if developers can add Release this would make life easier for them....
