Why can't I create an issue when I'm on the issues page?
Issues cannot exist on their own and must be created from a checklist, test, field observation or review. The issues page under main menu/issues is a log that just pulls in issues from all other places where they originate to display them in a list and allow you to generate reports of issues. It is one directional only. If you need to add an issue, create it where you observed it. If you saw it, create an observation. If you tried to do something and could not, put it under task. If there is something wrong with equipment, put it under that asset.
