Placeholders are text fields that you are prompted to complete when you create an issue from a template. For example, a 'full name' placeholder may be used in a New Starter template.

To begin, set your issue as a template. Full instructions can be found here.

Once this has been done, open the design of your issue by selecting the
Open Design option.

You can then add/edit a Text or Story panel, position your cursor where you would like to add your placeholder and select the placeholder icon.

In the Add New field type in the name of your placeholder - for example, Full Name.

Select Ok.

Save your changes by selecting the Save button.

When you create a new issue using the template you will be prompted to complete any placeholders on the Create a destination issue page.
